    Well, I believe is present tense. That would be for something you believe now or always believe. For example:

    I believe there is intelligent life on other planets.

    I believed is past tense. That would be for something you believed in the past. In some cases, it may be something you don't believe now. For example:

    When I was a kid, I believed that my Mom was the most beautiful woman in the world.

    Of course I still do, but that's beside the point.

    Hope this helps.
