Why is faith in Christ so important?

Faith in Christ is the means by which we are justified (Rom 5:1).

Without faith in Christ it is impossible to please God (Heb 11:6).

Faith in Christ produces love for others (Gal 5:6).

By faith in Christ we overcome the sinful pull of the world (1 John 5:4).

Faith in Christ produces joy and peace (Rom 15:13).

It is through faith in Christ that God provides us with the work of the Spirit (Gal 3:5).
