Some people use "faith" and "belief" interchangeably, but I feel they are not.
Religion is the body of knowledge and rituals used in practicing a set of beliefs. Faith transcends belief.
Belief is imperfect spanning many levels of confidence. Biblical literalists "believe" that their views of scripture are right and those of others are wrong. For instance, they believe that the universe is only 6,000 years old. Others have different beliefs about scripture, including a belief in evolution and a very old universe.
Faith, on the other hand, is perfect. It is the perfection of confidence needed to walk on water, to perform other miracles and to create. This is purely spiritual, timeless and free of all dichotomy. Faith is at Truth.
Just as belief is at effect (perception), faith is at cause (creation).
Belief is a product of ego; faith is a product of spirit.
