Faith in Action
Home -> About the Church -> Faith in Action

Faith is much more than passive belief. We express our faith through action—by the way we live. (True to the Faith)

The Apostle Paul taught that "faith is the substance [assurance] of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1). Alma made a similar statement: "If ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true" (Alma 32:21). Faith is a principle of action and power. Whenever we work toward a worthy goal, we exercise faith. We show our hope for something that we cannot yet see. (

As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints we show our faith by helping ourselves and others develop skills through various programs that prepare us to face the economic and spiritual challenges of the times.
