30 Bible Verses About Faith You Need to Read

Bible verses about faith

There are many Bible verses about faith. But what is faith? “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,” writes the author of Hebrews. A few verses later faith is similarly defined as knowing that God exists and that God rewards those who earnestly seek Him.

There is more to faith just simply an acknowledgment that Jesus died for our sins.  Having faith in Jesus also means we believe his promises. It is an understanding that regardless of our circumstances, God is working for our best interests.  

Faith in Jesus means you believe he actually exists. And second, you are convinced he is trustworthy; you can believe what he says and trust in his character.
