What Is Faith?


Faith is our highest human attainment. It is not subject to a precise definition but is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Having faith helps us to have modesty, uprightness, wisdom, courage, knowledge, and perseverance. It helps expand our mind, reinforces our personality, and enhances our power to love and be loved. Faith reveals our light to the world. Our faith can be thought of as an unconscious spontaneous expression of our experience with God.

We can have faith in the fundamental goodness of the universe, the precious promises of God, and the triumph of spiritual realities. As faith sons and daughters of God we can be certain of salvation.
