    I have pure/complete faith in Christianity.

    It's a matter of opinion. 'Complete' makes more sense to me.

    Re: ..pure/complete faith...

    The sentence is rather ambiguous though. I don't know if you are saying that you are a Christian who has a very strong faith or if you a person of unspecified (or no) religion, who believes that Christianity has a good chance of doing something.

    If it's the former, then "I have a strong Christian faith" would be more natural.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You probably mean you have faith in Christ.
