YES! There is only one faith. It is a believing faith which flows out of the new nature which the Spirit gives in regeneration. It is also a faith which is expressed both inwardly and outwardly; mind, affections and will in progressive sanctification. The faith which is the instrument used to embrace Christ unto justification is the same faith which strives after holiness, aka: sanctification... it is a living faith.
