Topics relating to faith, religion, and spirituality in the village of Holly, Michigan are the focal point of this guide.

Faith may be defined as trusting something that you cannot explicitly prove or, as the Christian Bible says in Hebrews 11:1, "faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." The two essential aspects of faith are intellectual assent and trust. Faith exists when a person believes something to be true, and relies on the fact that it is true.

Religion is a fundamental set of beliefs and practices that are agreed upon by a group of people. Generally, religion includes affirmation of the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, and involves devotional or ritual practices or observances, and usually a moral code that governs conduct.

Spirituality is more difficult to define. It may be defined as the aspect of humanity that refers to the way in which an individual seeks and expresses meaning and purpose.

Although faith, religion, and spirituality are usually related, although it is possible for a person to have faith and religion without spirituality, just as a person may be spiritual without having faith in a deity or participating in religion.
