In a world that often prizes what can be seen and touched, faith calls us to trust in something greater, something beyond the immediate and the tangible. It's not about making assumptions about what we deserve or what should happen—it's about trusting in what has already been done for us through Christ.
Faith is the bedrock of our salvation. It's not about what we can do, but about trusting in what Christ has already accomplished. When we talk about faith, we're talking about putting our personal trust in His finished work on the cross. It's the kind of trust that changes us from the inside out.

Having faith doesn't mean we have all the answers. It means we have confidence in God's Word, even when our current situation seems uncertain. Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see, just as we're told in Hebrews 11:1: "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."
But faith isn't just about belief; it's also about action. It's visualizing God's will for our lives and then stepping out to follow it, even when the path isn't fully clear. It's about investing our time and our resources in things that have eternal value—things that last beyond our lifetime.
Here at Shenandoah Valley Adult Teen Challenge, we witness the power of faith every day. We see it when someone takes a step towards healing, not knowing exactly where it will lead, but trusting that God is with them. We see it in the choice to spend time in prayer and reading the Bible, building up treasures in heaven rather than on earth.
Faith can move mountains, but it can also move the human heart. It can take us from a place of despair to a place of hope, from a feeling of being lost to a sense of purpose and direction.

These lessons go beyond just the actions we take—they're about shaping who we are. God doesn't only work through the things we do; He's deeply interested in the people we're becoming. Every one of us has a purpose, and through this character-building course, we'll explore that purpose more deeply. You can find all the articles in this series on our Blog.
