Faith is essential to our lives as believers. It is the very foundation of our Christian belief. We begin our journey with the profession of our belief and faith in who God is. We believe by faith that Jesus lived, died on the cross, and rose on the third day. Because of our faith, we know that God not only is our Father in Heaven, but He loves us so much He gave His son Jesus for the redemption of our sins. We have faith that God actually loves us enough to take care of our needs. We have faith that He hears our prayers when we call Him.
