The Theological Virtues

I. Faith

By Faith we believe in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe all that God has said, freely committing ourselves to God. The Bible says, "The righteous shall live by faith."

II. Hope

Hope is the virtue by which we desire the Kingdom of God and eternal life. We trust in Christ's promises to us, relying on God, not ourselves. Hope keeps us from discouragement.

III. Love

Love is the virtue by which we love God above all things. We love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Jesus said, "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you."
