You’re probably looking for bible verses about faith. You’re not alone. Faith is a common topic, so many passages talk about faith.

Faith is defined as the belief in the truth of something that is difficult to prove directly. The word faith can also be used to describe admiration for someone or something, an ideology, or a cultural movement. It is certainly an important part of Christianity and other religions. There are lots of different verses about faith in the Bible.

This article is going to discuss the meaning of faith in more detail by looking at 26 biblical scriptures about it.

Bible verses about faith

Do you believe in faith? A lot of people do, but they don’t know how to define it or what keeps them motivated. It’s true that the Bible is full of faith-promoting scripture, but I wanted to make it easy for you to find them with this list.

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

~ Hebrews 11:1(NASB)

Faith alone, in the grace of God, brings redemption and eternal life to sinners.

The only way to receive this free and eternal gift from the Father is to trust in His Word and believe in His Son, whether they are Old Testament saints or New Testament believers.

Faith is simply believing that the things God has revealed in His written Word will undoubtedly happen in the future. “The just shall live by faith.”

The righteous man shall live by faith. Therefore, the godly man, the virtuous woman, and the maturing believer are all expected to live by faith.

 

Hebrews 11:6

And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

~ Hebrews 11:6(NASB)

Hebrews is an example of Scripture that instructs mature believers on how to live by faith, that is, how to live a life that pleases God.

While believing in Christ’s redemptive work is the first and most obvious step toward pleasing God, a believer’s continual, active faith pleases God.

Only a believer can please God. We satisfy God when we are justified and live a sanctified life.

We can only please God through Christ’s imputed righteousness “because it is impossible to please Him without faith.”

However, after we have been rescued, we must live by faith to satisfy Him.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

~ Proverbs 3:5

Faith in God’s Word is His will for every one of our lives; thus, trusting Him in all matters is a core precept.

Because God is the origin and conclusion of all knowledge, trusting Him unconditionally is the center and circumference of all wisdom.

Confidence in God is the source of all good things, and it pleases our heavenly Father since it is impossible to please Him without Faith.

Having faith and trusting the Lord with all of our hearts entails putting one’s desires and fantasies aside to obey His will.

Trusting the Lord entails believing His Word and living by it.

 

Mark 9:23

Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

~ Mark 9:23

Jesus went about doing good, mending all sorts of ailments, and delivering all who were oppressed through the power of the Holy Spirit.

When contacted by individuals seeking healing, the Lord Jesus made it a point to address the ‘faith’ issue, as they had to have faith before they could be healed.

Faith has no limits when it comes to God’s ability since the person who is ready and willing to trust Him in all things, submit to His plan, and not allow seemingly impossible situations to undermine their faith in God’s ability will see wonderful things happen in their life.

Jesus’ capacity to heal the broken-hearted, cast out demons, set the prisoner free, make the lame walk, the deaf hear, and the dumb speak has never waned over time as long as you have faith in Him.

 

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;

~ Ephesians 2:8(NASB)

Grace and Faith in God are the sources of salvation for sinners. We believe we will be saved because of our Faith (Romans 10:9).

Paul immediately follows this assertion with clarification. Paul does not want anyone to believe that salvation is contingent on something they did or could do in the future.

No activity is sufficient to ensure our own salvation. No amount of good deeds can make up for the sins we’ve committed.

Salvation is a gift from God. Furthermore, it is a gift that only God can provide. The gift of eternal life can only be given by God.

Instead, we are to have faith in this free gift of God and also preach the gospel, live it, share it, pray for others’ salvation, and assist people in growing in God’s favor.

 

Bible verses about faith in hard times

Matthew 21:22

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

~ Matthew 21:22

This is the promise that Jesus Christ made to us. If we have faith and confidence and pray to Him, He will certainly grant our requests.

God is exceedingly concerned that His people place their trust in Him and Him alone to fulfill their requests. But, of course, God’s might is boundless.

For Him, anything is possible. However, Jesus has made it clear that those who want God to utilize His power in a specific way must have complete Faith in His capacity to do so.

Christ informs the disciples that they would receive anything they ask for if they have faith.

This entails having Faith in God and His ability to carry out His will. It also denotes conformity to God’s will.

 

2 Corinthians 5:7

for we walk by faith, not by sight

~ 2 Corinthians 5:7(NASB)

Paul was compelled to declare the message of God and show the glory of the Christian faith to the people of his day by Christ’s constraining love.

Paul required these believers to comprehend the New Covenant’s essence. Unbelievers cannot earn their salvation through acts of the law, and Christians cannot live a God-honoring life through fleshly deeds.

We are saved by faith rather than deeds of the flesh or our works, and we must walk by faith rather than sight.

Paul and his coworkers have suffered dramatically as a result of preaching the gospel of Christ to the world. Despite this, they continue to fight for the religion. They refuse to give up.

They live with courage and faith because they believe that, like Christ, they will be resurrected after death. They will be given glorified, immortal bodies in which they will be free of all burdens and the groaning that every living thing on earth is experiencing.

 

1 John 5:4

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith.

~ 1 John 5:4(NASB)

How can believers triumph over this sinful world? Verse 5 explains it more clearly: by having faith and trusting in Jesus as the Son of God.

John refers to “faith” as our victory in verse 4. The believer’s faith is the victory that triumphs.

Because they have eternal life in Christ (John 3:16) and abundant life now, every believer is an overcomer and a victorious one.

The Christian has the power of God’s Spirit to overcome the challenges of this world. All that is required is faith in God.

 

Hebrews 11:11

Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

~ Hebrews 11:1

“The book of Hebrews 11 explains what it means to have faith and live.

True believers accept God’s word without considering human understanding and looking beyond the circumstance as seen via natural eyesight.

The ancients received God’s loving approval by practicing this kind of trust. They saw God’s awesome might when they trusted in him.

Abel’s sacrifice was superior to that of his brother Cain because of his faith in God.

Through faith, also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed and was delivered of a child when she was past age because she judged him faithful who had promised.

Those who seek to approach God, like Enoch, believe that God exists and is benevolent. For us to attend great height like the old men, we have to exercise faith in God.

 

Romans 1:17

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

~ Romans 1:17

The righteousness of God is shown in the gospel in the sense that it is imparted to humans through trust in Christ.

In other words, because of their Faith, God declares humans to be righteous in His eyes.

The phrase “from faith to faith”  means that this declaration of virtuous people is based on faith from beginning to end.

People cannot be considered righteous before God by observing the law, as the book of Romans says.

In His love and grace, God sent His only begotten Son to be born into the human race so that His sinless life would be the one and only payment necessary to totally and finally satisfy God’s flawless law’s righteous requirements.

At the Cross of Christ, God’s rightful judgment on sin was secured, providing forgiveness of sin for all who believe.

All that is required of us is to have faith in God and believe in his name.

 

KJV bible verses about Faith

 

1 Timothy 6:12

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

~ 1 Timothy 6:12

The Christian life is a difficult battle filled with several perils, which Paul defines as a good fight:

“Battle the good fight of faith,” he encouraged Timothy, “and grasp hold of the eternal life to which you were called, for which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”

This battle is a team effort against a familiar foe Satan.

It is a spiritual conflict in which we fight the world, the body, the devil, and our self-will while standing firm in the truth of God’s Word.

Fighting the good fight of faith is more about rising to the challenges of our Christian life than engaging in violent conflict against a physical foe.

We must develop our faith and trust in God, not lend on our understanding.

 

Luke 8:50

But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.

~ Luke 8:50

A crisis period will come for nearly all of us, and everything we hold dear will appear to be lost.

Faith may not have been difficult for us before this crisis, but our current difficulties may be our turning point.

Will you be able to keep your faith? Can we put our faith in Jesus in a crisis, even if we don’t see a way out?

When everything appears to be gone, and everyone else is having doubts, Jesus comes to us and says, “Don’t be scared. fear not, believe only, and your prayers must be answered.”

Please, LORD Almighty, keep me pure and undistracted at all other times, including the best of circumstances, so that my faith can stand solid.

 

John 7:38

He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

~ John 5:4

In this verse, Jesus makes us understand that He is our internal spring of life, or stream, which represents the Holy Spirit.

And the Holy Spirit has to live inside all who come to believe in Christ.

However, the indwelling will not begin until we have faith and trust fully in our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Romans 10:11

For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

~ Romans 10:11

Paul refers to Christ as the priceless cornerstone God has placed in Zion.

Those who put their faith in this cornerstone, this solid foundation, will be rewarded and shall not be ashamed.

The foundation will stand firm. They will be standing on top of the Rock.

 

John 20:29

Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

~ John 20:29

Thomas was undeniably one of the followers of Christ and a man who trusted in the risen Lord Jesus and was a crucial figure in the early Church.

He referred to Jesus as “my Lord and my God” only after seeing with his eyes that he had been raised from the dead.

When Jesus was arrested, dead and crucifixion of Christ, Thomas, like the other disciples had allowed despair to overcome him to the point where he declared, “I will not believe unless I see the print of the nails in His hands, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and push my hand into His side!”

But as Christians today, Jesus has made it known that blessed are they that have not seen and yet have believed.

 

bible verses about faith and trust KJV

James 1:3

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

~James 1:3 (KJV)

It may be Satan who throws hardship our way to bring out the worst in us and destroy our confidence in the Lord.

But it is God who takes our suffering and turns it into a test for good since God always puts our faith to the test to bring out the best in us.

And, as James points out, putting your faith to the test promotes steadfastness.

His letter implies that many of his brothers and sisters in Christ were facing severe financial hardship as well as severe persecution for their faith, so he encouraged them to rejoice in their trials and tribulations because the testing of their faith produced perseverance, steadfastness, and patient endurance.

 

James 1:6

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

~ James 1:6 (KJV)

During times of significant problems and pain, disbelief in God’s goodness and power causes a man or woman to be confused and bruised by life’s circumstances.

At this point, becoming unstable in faith may likely come up because of the situation they are facing instead of becoming victors through the sufficient strength supplied to all God’s children through faith.

As a result, James reminds us that the trials we endure are meant to put our confidence in God to the test, deepen our faith in Him, and bring us to our knees in prayer and supplication – so that we can receive His grace and mercy to help us when we are in need.

As a result, we are obligated to pray and have faith in God when we have any problem.

 

Romans 15:13

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

~ Romans 15:13 (KJV)

Paul prays that the God of hope fills these Christians with complete pleasure and peace as they believe and trust in Him.

In other words, Paul isn’t pleading with God to pour joy and peace into their hearts for no reason.

Instead, he requests that when these Christians trust God, their faith will bring them joy and peace.

To put it another way, assist them in maintaining their faith so that they may enjoy joy and tranquillity.

Finally, Paul requests that they experience joy and serenity of purpose while they wait on God.

 

John 6:35

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

~ John 6:35 (KJV)

The crowds pursued the Lord after learning that He had crossed to the opposite side of the Galilee in the expectation of receiving more free meals!

However, Jesus recognized that they were pursuing Him for the wrong reasons. They were looking for Him not because they realized the sign, but because they were satisfied after eating the loaves.

They were not following Him to satisfy their soul’s want for forgiveness, but they were following him to quench their bodily thirst and natural hunger.

Jesus admonished them not to labor for perishable body sustenance but for nourishment that lasts for eternity which only He could provide.

He was the one who had the Father’s seal placed on him.

 

Matthew 17:20

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

~ Matthew 17:20 (KJV)

The nine disciples who were left behind when Jesus took Peter, James, and John up the mountain (Matthew 17:1) failed miserably to heal a sick child.

They could not exorcise a demon from a youngster in excruciating pain.

Their public humiliation triggered a debate with several Jewish scribes and indignant response from Jesus about their “faithless and perverted” generation (Matthew 17:14–17).

The disciples are eager to learn what went wrong after Jesus healed the youngster. So they inquired of Him discreetly, away from the people, as to why they could not send out the demon.

In this verse, Jesus addresses them immediately, albeit somewhat kind. Their “lack of faith” was at the root of their failure.

They either didn’t believe in the power Jesus had given them (Matthew 10:8) or didn’t believe it could be exercised through them.

Maybe they thought this case was too tough. It was incredible that they could even accomplish miracles utilizing Christ’s power. The key to that power, according to Jesus, is Faith in Him.

 

Bible verses about faith, love, and hope

1 Corinthians 13:13

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

~ 1 Corinthians 13:13

Three gifts and graces stand out among the many that are poured forth in abundance into the lives of Christians who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

When prophecy is accomplished, languages fade away, signs fade away, and marvels of health, healing, supply, and protection become obsolete.

We are taught that these three spiritual fruits of God’s tremendous grace – Faith, hope, and love – will endure, remain, and abide in the everlasting state.

And we must strive to attain these spiritual gifts of God.

 

Bible verses about faith bible verses about faith

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

~ Hebrews 11:1(NASB)

In this bible verse, we are made to understand that faith simply believes that the things God has revealed in His written Word will undoubtedly happen in the future.

This was followed by an encouraging exhortation to have faith rather than shrink back.

The purpose of this definition is to connect this command to the examples that follow.

The rest of this chapter shows that total faith and trust lead to obedience and is rewarded with God’s blessings and favor.

Bible verses about faith and healing

Mark 10:52

And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

~ Mark 10:52

The news of Christ’s healing power and Messianic promises had gone far and reached this blind beggar in Jericho.

And when he realized that among the bustling multitude leaving the city was Jesus, the great Prophet about whom everyone was chatting, he began to cry out, “Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me!” “HAVE MERCY ON ME, JESUS, SON OF DAVID!” he kept screaming.

Despite being ordered to be quiet by many in the throng, this desperate man was not about to let this chance pass him by, and we read, “but he kept screaming out all the more, ‘Son of David, have pity on me!’

And he was able to have the attention of Christ and was healed. This goes to show that when we have faith and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, we will be healed, just like this blind man was healed in the Bible.

Bible verses about faith and hope

Psalm 31:24

Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

~ Psalm 31:24

David encourages believers to be intentional and brave in their faith in God.

This reminds us of the Lord’s encouragement to Joshua as he prepared to lead the Israelites into Canaan.

They’d have to contend with giants and walled cities there. Despite this, God commanded Joshua: “Be courageous and powerful.

Do not be afraid or discouraged because the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Life is full of difficulties. Various difficulties put the believer under stress and pressure.

But those who trust God and His timing, on the other hand, find strength in the face of any hardship.

Waiting on the Lord entails praying and putting one’s trust in Him. It also entails keeping an eye out for our obedient Lord’s return, as he promised.

Bible verses about faith and love

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

~ John 3:16

The magnitude of God’s self-sacrificial love should never be overlooked.

Because man sinned, the entire universe was sentenced to divine judgment.

God despises sin, but He cannot look at sin – so He, Who knows the end from the beginning, predetermined in eternity past, to redeem His fallen race by providing a substitute for corruption – a perfect Man Who would pay the price of sin and receive the punishment that WE deserve… so that WHOSOEVER believes in Him will not perish but will have eternal life.

Whoever believes in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation will get forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and access to the gates of heaven. It is through this faith in God that we can benefit from His genuine love for us.

Bible verses about faith and strength

Ephesians 6:10

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

~ Ephesians 6:10

As Christ’s soldiers, we must rise and be strong in the Lord rather than relying on ourselves.

And, as members of God’s family, we are to trust in the might of HIS might, rather than taking courage in our strength.

Every true believer quickly realizes that we are living in a world where we are at war – not a conflict fought with fleshly weapons, sophisticated technology, or cleverly devised battle strategies or procedures of war, but a match fought in the spiritual realm and which requires a heavenly power from above – strength that is beyond our human capacities – power that only compels us to believe in Christ Jesus.
