  • What is faith in Jesus Christ?
  • Faith in Jesus Christ is a saving grace, whereby we receive and rest upon Him alone for salvation, as He is offered to us in the Gospel.

Memory Verse(s)

  • “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us” (Romans 8:18, ESV).


  • Study Passage: Hebrews 11
  • Support Passages: Isaiah 43:1-3; Matthew 10:34-39; Romans 8:18-39; Revelation 2:1-3:22
  • Bible Story: II Corinthians 11:23-28


  • “The Protestant Reformers recognized that biblical faith has three essential aspects:notitia,assensus, and fiducia.
  • Notitia. Notitia refers to the content of faith, or those things that we believe. We place our faith in something, or more appropriately, someone. In order to believe, we must know something about that someone, who is the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Assensus. Assensus is our conviction that the content of our faith is true. You can know about the Christian faith and yet believe that it is not true. Genuine faith says that the content — the notitiataught by Holy Scripture — is true.
  • Fiducia. Fiducia refers to personal trust and reliance. Knowing and believing the content of the Christian faith is not enough, for even demons can do that (James 2:19). Faith is only effectual if, knowing about and assenting to the claims of Jesus, one personally trusts in Him alone for salvation.” [1]
  • “14.1. The grace of faith by which the elect are enabled to believe, so that their souls are saved, is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts,1 and is ordinarily [normally] brought into being by the ministry of the Word.2 It is also increased and strengthened by the work of the Spirit through the ministry of the Word, and also by the administration of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, prayer, and other means appointed by God.3 1 2 Cor 4.13; Eph 2.8. 2 Rom 10.14-17. 3 Luke 17.5; 1 Pet 2.2; Acts 20.32.
  • 2. By this faith a Christian believes to be true whatever is revealed in the Word because this Word has the authority of God Himself.4 [Saving faith causes a person to believe all the Bible to be the Word of God – instinctively and completely.] Also, by this saving faith, a Christian apprehends [sees] an excellency in the Word which is higher than in all other writings and everything else in the world,5 because the Word shows forth the glory of God, revealing His attributes, showing the excellency of Christ’s nature and offices, and also the power and fulness of the Holy Spirit in His workings and operations.
  • – So the Christian is enabled to cast his soul upon [fully trust] the Truth he has believed,6 and to see and respond to the different kinds of teaching which different passages of Scripture contain. Saving faith equips him to perceive and obey the commands,7 hear the threatenings with fear and respect,8 and to embrace the promises of God for this life and the life to come.9
  • – But the first and most important acts of saving faith are those ­directly to do with Christ, when the soul accepts, receives, and rests upon Him alone for justification, sanctification and eternal life, by ­virtue of the covenant of grace.10 4 Acts 24.14. 5 Psa 19.7-10; 119.72. 6 2 Tim 1.12. 7 John 15.14. 8 Isa 66.2. 9 Heb 11.13. 10 John 1.12; Acts 16.31; Gal 2.20; Acts 15.11.
  • 3. This faith, although it differs in degree, and may be weak or strong,11 even at its very weakest is in an entirely different class and has a different nature (like other aspects of saving grace) from the kind of faith and common grace which is possessed by temporary believers.12 Therefore, though it may be frequently assailed [attacked] and weakened, it gets the victory,13 growing up in many to the attainment of a full assurance through Christ,14 Who is both the ­author and finisher of our faith.15 11 Heb 5.13-14; Matt 6.30; Rom 4.19-20. 12 2 Pet 1.1. 13 Eph 6.16; 1 John 5.4-5.” 14 Heb 6.11-12; Col 2.2. 15 Heb 12.2.” [2]

Discussion Questions

  • What does it mean to receive him for salvation?
  • What does it mean to rest on him alone for salvation?
  • Why is it important that our faith, rest, and salvation is according to what was “ offered to us in the gospel?”
  • Have you placed your faith and rest alone in Christ for your salvation?
  • What evidence in your life might be a testimony to this?
