Faith is a difficult thing to explain to kids– especially today. These days, people take pride in NOT having faith in anything, so how do we show our kids what faith is? The best place to turn is, of course, the Bible. This post has 10 of the best Bible verses about faith to use with your Sunday School, Children’s Church, Bible class, Youth Group…. or anything else!
Now, of course, there are way more than 10 verses about faith in the Bible, buuuut I narrowed it down so that this wouldn’t be impossibly long.
Just a heads up, the last one is my favorite Bible verse of all time. Yes, I like it even more than I like 2 Timothy 1:7. And if you’ve read any of my lessons, you’ll know that’s one of my all time favorites.

I love Bible verses that are simple. This first Bible verses about faith is super simple– just believe.

Now that we’ve established that all you need to do is believe, this verse is a bit more practical– it shows us a way that we can believe, and we can demonstrate our faith.
Walking by faith is HARD, but it is necesary.
If your kids need a little lesson in this area, have them put a blindfold on. Then have the other students guide them around the room with their voices. This will force them to learn to live by faith.
Afterwards, remind them that God is much more reliable than your friends in Sunday School….
Kids want to please us. Even more than they want to please us, they want to please God. This verse shows us how to do that!
When it comes to verses about faith, this is one of the best ways to show kids what God expects of us.
I would add that we should ask for things in prayer that align with God’s will, because just because we want it, doesn’t mean that it will happen. I spent a lot of days praying that my room would be pink when I woke up. Guess what? Never happened.
On the flip side, when I was a kid, I prayed that I would stop having nightmares, and that did happen.
This is one of those verses people love to bring up, but it is still so good! It reminds us that God is in charge of everything. We can do anything with God.
This verse about faith is so good, because it’s very simplistic.
It shows us that being faithful means fulfilling God’s commandments. It means that we keep the laws that are spelled out in the Bible– that we don’t lie or cheat or steal. We pray. We help people. We are kind. That is how you are faithful.
This verse is a good reminder to students that just because they believe in God, it doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy to be faithful. There are a lot of distractions, temptations, and people that can lead us astray.
Instead, you have to be strong. Sometimes that means being courageous and standing up for what we believe in.
Do I even need to say anything about this?
Do you have a favorite Bible verse?
This is mine.
This whole passage is so rich, so amazing, and so deep, but this verse sums it up perfectly.
We don’t see God. We have hope that He has a plan. We have hope that things are going to go well. We have hope for the future.
Because we have faith, we don’t just think that– we know. We are sure.
So there’s 10 of the best Bible verses about faith! Again, it’s not everything, but it’s a few.
