There are lots of questions about faith, what it is, how it is gained, who has it, and what it accomplishes. Scripture is a great source for answering some of these questions about faith, but we must forget some of what we think we know, and let Scripture teach us. If you want more faith, or to have greater faith, some of the Scriptures on faith below should be helpful.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain,`Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain,`Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done.
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
