Faith is always present.
Faith however is not belief. Why? Because belief is taking something to be true which does not correspond to reality because reality is truthless. Saying 'reality is truthless' does not mean 'reality is false' and it does not mean 'reality does not exist' because that would mean taking away too much.
Belief has an object. Faith doesn't have an object which is why faith in Buddha is imperturbable.
Buddha said: 'Seeing Dharma is seeing me' and so it is.
