This study aims to draw up a collective context of faith to Señor Santo Niño from the different experiences of the devotees in Cebu. It specifically answers the representation of faith: meaning of faith, experiences of faith, effects to daily life. Qualitative design was used in the study through katutubong pamamaraan of Enriquez such as pakikipag-usap, pagtatanung-tanong and pakikipagpalagayang-loob so that actual essential data gathered. This study anchored in Filipino Psychology of Enriquez, that refers to the psychology born out of the experience, thought and orientation of the Filipinos, based on the full use of Filipino culture and language. The approach is one of “indigenization from within” whereby the theoretical framework and methodology emerge from the experiences of the people from the indigenous culture. The findings of the study reveal that the devotees conceptualize faith as their beliefs to Santo Niño and it rooted through different miracles that they received towards being an optimistic person in life despite of all challenges experienced. Based on the findings, the study concluded that collectively, the faith by the devotees is connected to all miracles experienced from Señor Santo Niño that lead their strong faith. Thus, the study recommends in the future studies that the relationship of faith and devotion to Señor Santo Niño will be focused.
