to place one's trust in God's truth; to take God at His Word and trust in him for salvation.
To have faith or trust in God. It is NOT simply an intellectual acknowledgment that God exists, which so many today feel is adequate enough to save them from God's wrath.

The belief Paul discusses requires action and sacrifice by one to love, serve and obey the only wise God, the Creator of all. Romans 1:16; Romans 4:3; Romans 10:4; Romans 10:14; Hebrews 11:6

Although a Christian is saved by belief in Christ, faith without action (that is, a distinct movement of the will to follow Christ) is hollow and void of the righteousness necessary to salvation (see article, "Justification by Faith," at Rom. 5; Matt. 7:21; John 3:16; James 2:14 26).

In the psychological sense, belief is a representational mental state that takes the form of a propositional attitude. Knowledge is often defined as justified true belief, in that the belief must be considered to correspond to reality and must be derived from valid evidence and arguments. However, this definition has been challenged by the Gettier problem which suggests that justified true belief does not provide a complete picture of knowledge.
Belief is the conviction of the truth of a proposition. Like the related concepts truth, knowledge, and wisdom, there is no single definition of belief on which scholars agree, but rather numerous theories and continued debate about the nature of belief.
