1. complete trust or confidence in someone or something. “this restores one’s faith in politicians” synonyms: trust, belief, confidence, conviction

Secular definitions only scratch the surface when it comes to defining faith. For believers we turn to God’s written word for his guidance on faith. Turn to the concordance in the back of your bible and search the index for scriptures which include the word faith or any variation thereof and you’ll find over one hundred verses on the topic.
One of the more well known verses on the topic of faith is found in Hebrews 11:1 (NIV) Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
