If we take note of the SINGULAR term “Faith” as even GOD can not hold not only differing faith beliefs on the same defined issues; then YES!
BUT perhaps a more personal; a more relevant question is what does IT [singular] actually mean to 'believe in Jesus" AND can this separated from total and humble obedience to Christ?

Jim the point I was TRYING to make is that not ALL faith beliefs are equal in GOD"S view.
TRUTH can be nothing else but singular per defined issue; hence even God can hold to ONLY one truth per defined topic.
The RCC, the original church and faith of Jesus Christ has existed from the time of His Visitation here on earth; provable historically and biblically.
Because the bible is a Catholic book; it was the early RCC Fathers who guided by the HS chose the 46 OT books to be included and it was Catholic Authors who wrote the entire 27 book NT. Thus one CAN logically know God’s teachings and meanings of HIS bible by conforming to what His Protected RCC teaches, practices and believes.
So simply claiming to “know” Jesus Christ" without actually accepting what that SAME Jesus Christ taught, commands and expects from each of us is not the belief and practice of Christ One True Faith.
That Jim is why after 2,000 years the 23 Churches aligned with Rome ALL practice the VERY SAME ONE TRUE FAITH in our beliefs; while the Protestants in about 500 years have a large multiplicity of DIFFERING beliefs & churches based on ones INDIVIDUAL preferences and choices.
That my friend was the point I was hoping to make.
God Bless you,
