Have Faith: Civ 6 Best Religion Beliefs

In the real world, it would be rude to talk too much about your religious beliefs in mixed company. But in the world of Civ 6, victory or defeat often hinges on what your religious beliefs are!

So, what are the best beliefs in the game? Players love to argue about this, but we’re here to bring you the definitive list of best religion beliefs in the game!

Best Enhancer Belief


Are you a big believer in the “go big or go home” style of gameplay? Us, too! That’s why Crusade is our pick for the best Enhancer belief.

This belief gives you a nice +10 combat strength bonus that can make a real difference in the outcome of your game. Some players find it difficult to maintain this belief throughout the game, but why not make big swings as early as possible?

Best Founder Belief

No, Odo doesn't count

We’re big believers in in-game mechanics that consistently pay off. That happens pretty literally with Tithe, which is our pick for the best Founder belief.

As the name implies, this belief is all about providing extra gold to you. While there are other beliefs that are better suited to specific kinds of victories (like Cross-Cultural Dialogue for those seeking a science victory), gold in Civ 6 is like gold in real life: it’s pretty much always useful!

Best Worship Belief

Bow down!

Worship beliefs are a lot like Founder beliefs in their own way. While certain beliefs are better for certain kinds of victories, we prefer the “slow and steady” nature of the Wat belief.

This belief grants a nice +2 Science that is useful across a wide variety of scenarios and victory types. So while you may prefer something like Cathedral for cultural victories or Mosque for religious victories, we think you’ll find that the science boost is always useful in a pinch.

Best Follower Belief

Not a leader

The Bible talks about the many benefits of followers making a joyful noise. As it turns out, having your own followers do the same can really pay off in Civ 6!

That’s why we chose Choral Music as the best Follower belief in the game. It helps you add a nice culture bonus to Shrines and Temples. Such bonuses allow you to rapidly advance through the Civics Tree and generally give your game a nice jumpstart.

The Eye of the Beholder

Oh my goddess

Chances are high you don’t agree with everything on our list. Don’t forget the golden rule of gaming: only you can decide how you want to play!

Different victory goals and changing metas may affect the beliefs you favor from game to game. If you want reliable bonuses that will lead to more consistent wins across the board, our list is a great place to start.
