It is clear from verses like these that though there are varying measures (degrees) of faith, there are not various kinds (varieties) of faith.  There is only one faith, and it is the faith that Jesus authored and developed (The Faith of Jesus), and it is faith in Jesus (Faith Is in Christ).

Romans 12:3  –  “…as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.”  –  That is, each of us is given a measure of the same faith.

1 Corinthians 13;2  –  “…and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains…”  –  Paul is saying “If I have the fullest measure (degree) of faith…”  He is not talking about different kinds (types) of faith.

Ephesians 4:5  –  “…one faith…”

Titus 1:4  –  “to Titus, my true child in a common faith…”

2 Peter 1:1  –  “…to those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours…”  –  Again, there is only one kind of faith.

Jude 1:3  –  “…appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.”
