Welcome to the Faith WorkBook Volume One

Our objective is to set forth some of the basic truths about faith and stimulate a desire for faith to become real and operative in your life.

Scripture Background    

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Hebrews12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Hebrews11:27 By faith he (Moses) forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
John 6:47 As the living Father hath sent me and I live by the Father; so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. John 6:57 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth in me hath everlasting life.
Jude 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the Land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.


 
What is Bible Believing Faith?

The Bible says that "without faith it is impossible to please God" Hebrews 11:6. The first step in seeking to discover the life of faith is to ask the question...

What is Faith?    

There is no brief or comprehensive definition of faith. The following statements, however, give us a glimpse of the kind of faith that is pleasing to God:

Faith is calling those things which are not as though they are.
"Whatsoever is not of faith is sin." Any walk that is less than the walk of faith is a sinful walk.
Faith is a reason at rest with God.
Faith grows exceedingly fast not by a glimpse, not by a look, but by a gaze upon Him.
Faith is dependency upon God, and this God-dependency begins only when self dependency ends.
Faith does not always take you out of the storm; faith calms you in the storm.
There can be no spiritual reality apart from an active faith in Christ.
Therefore, no salvation, no holiness, no peace, no calmness, no power, no witness, no victory. So at all cost learn to trust Christ.
Faith is the confidence and active trust that brings a child of God into the "sixth sense" which enables him to apprehend the invisible and spiritual things of God. He can hear God speak and see God in a way that he knows it is God without the assistance of his physical faculties.
Faith bids eternal truth to become present fact.
• Continually revise your relationship to God until the only certainty you have is the certainty that God is faithful; not you.
There is not a normal, healthy human being apart from religious faith.
"Faith claims the whole man, and all God's grace can make him." (Forsyth)
Faith is not a faculty; faith is the whole man rightly related to God by the Spirit of Jesus.
Faith enables the believing soul to treat the future as present and the invisible as visible.
Faith is as much at home in the realm of the impossible as it is in the realm of the possible.
