First, the idea that God actually exists.
A correct idea of His character, perfections, and attributes.
Actual knowledge that the choices you’re making, the life you’re living, is according to God’s will.
Collection of Religious Quotes About Faith and Hope
“Wherever you now find yourself on the road of discipleship, you are on the right road, the road toward eternal life. Together we can lift and strengthen one another in the great and important days ahead. Whatever the difficulties confronting us, the weaknesses confining us, or the impossibilities surrounding us, let us have faith in the Son of God, who declared, “All things are possible to him that believeth.” Neil L. Andersen
“Faith is always pointed toward the future. Faith always has to do with blessings and truths and events that will yet be efficacious in our lives.” Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
‘There is no obstacle too great, no challenge too difficult, that we cannot meet with faith.” President Gordon B. Hinckley
“Like the intense fire that transforms iron into steel, as we remain faithful during the fiery trial of our faith, we are spiritually refined and strengthened.” Neil L Anderson
“Trusting in God’s will is central to our mortality. With faith in Him, we draw upon the power of Christ’s Atonement at those times when questions abound and answers are few.” Ronald A. Rasband
“Abandoning our faith because it doesn’t answer all the questions would be like closing the shutters because we can’t see the entire mountain.” Fiona Givens
“When problems come and questions arise, do not start your quest for faith by saying how much you do not have, leading as it were with your “unbelief.” That is like trying to stuff a turkey through the break!” Jeffrey R. Holland
“One of the hardest challenges in this life is to have faith in the Lord’s timing.” Bonnie L. Oscarson
“The size of your faith or the degree of your knowledge is not the issue – it is the integrity you demonstrate toward the faith you do have and the truth you already know.” Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
“It will take unshakable faith in the Lord Jesus Christ to choose the way to eternal life. It is by using that faith we can know the will of God. It is by acting on that faith we build the strength to do the will of God. And it is by exercising that faith in Jesus Christ that we can resist temptation and gain forgiveness through the Atonement. We will need to have developed and nurtured faith in Jesus Christ long before Satan hits us, as he will, with doubts and appeals to our carnal desires and with lying voices saying that good is bad and that there is no sin. Those spiritual storms are already raging. We can expect that they will worsen until the Savior returns. However much faith to obey God we now have, we will need to strengthen it continually and keep it refreshed constantly.” President Henry B. Eyring
“If we think we have faith, we should ask, faith in whom or faith in what? For some, faith is nothing more than faith in themselves. That is only self-confidence or self-centeredness. Others have faith in faith, which is something like relying on the power of positive thinking or betting on the proposition that we can get what we want by manipulating the powers within us. The first principle of the gospel is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Without this faith, the prophet Mormon said, we “are not fit to be numbered among the people of his church” (Moro. 7:39).” Elder Dallin H. Oaks
“Hope on. Journey on. Honestly acknowledge your questions and your concerns, but first and forever fan the flame of your faith, because all things are possible to them that believe.” Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
“Faith is both a principle of action and of power.” Marcus B. Nash
“Faith exists when absolute confidence in that which we cannot see combines with action that is in absolute conformity to the will of our Heavenly Father. Without all three—first, absolute confidence; second, action; and third, absolute conformity—without these three all we have is a counterfeit, a weak and watered-down faith.” Elder Joseph B Wirthlin
“We can reach out to those whose faith has grown cold and warm them by our own faith.” President Gordon B. Hinckley
“He knows your sacrifices and your sorrows. He hears your prayers. His peace and rest will be yours as you continue to wait upon Him in faith. Every one of us is more beloved to the Lord than we can possibly understand or imagine.” Elder Robert D. Hales
““If you’re serious about sanctification, you can expect to experience heart-wrenching moments that try your faith, your endurance, and your patience.”
“Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith.” Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“The truer measure of sacrifice isn’t so much what one gives to sacrifice as what one sacrifices to give. Faith isn’t tested so much when the cupboard is full as when it is bare. In these defining moments, the crisis doesn’t create one’s characterit reveals it.” Lynn G. Robbins
“The Savior responds to our acts of faith.” Elder Neil L. Anderson
“There are times when we have to step into the darkness in faith, confident that God will place solid ground beneath our feet once we do.” Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“We’re not going to survive in this world, temporally or spiritually, without increased faith in the Lord-and I don’t mean a positive mental attitude-I mean downright solid faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. That is the one thing that gives vitality and power to otherwise rather weak individuals.” A. Theodore Tuttle
“You exercise faith by…making your mind accept or believe as truth that which you cannot, by reason alone, prove for certainty.” President Boyd K. Packer
“It is my hope and my belief that the Lord never permits the light of faith wholly to be extinguished in any human heart, however faint the light may glow.” President J. Reuben Clark Jr.
“Some men are willing to die for their faith but will not fully live for it. Christ both lived and died for us. By walking in his steps and through his atonement we can gain the greatest gift of all–eternal life–which is that kind of life of the great Eternal One, our Father in heaven.” Ezra Taft Benson
“Truly understood and properly practiced, faith is one of the grand and glorious powers of eternity. It is a force powerful beyond our comprehension. “Through faith … the worlds were framed by the word of God.” Through faith, waters are parted, the sick healed, the wicked silenced, and salvation made possible. Our faith is the foundation upon which all our spiritual lives rest. It should be the most important resource of our lives. Faith is not so much something we believe; faith is something we live.” Joseph B. Wirthlin
“Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith.” President Thomas S. Monson
“As we put our faith and trust to work, hope is born. Hope grows out of faith and gives meaning and purpose to all that we do. It can even give us the peaceful assurance we need to live happily in a world that is ripe with iniquity, calamity, and injustice.” M. Russell Ballard
“The truth is that our only safety, our only security, our only hope is to hold fast to that which is good. As the mists of darkness gather around us, we are only lost if we choose to let go of the iron rod, which is the word of God.”David S. Baxter
“Noah had the unwavering faith to follow God’s commandments. May we ever do likewise. May we remember that the wisdom of God ofttimes appears as foolishness to men; but the greatest lesson we can learn in mortality is that when God speaks and we obey, we will always be right.” Thomas S. Monson
