You posted it. Again, I would say the archaic terminology of the KJV of Gal. 2:16 and Phil. 3:9 is misleading you to state that we are saved by Christ's faith. Admittedly, that is what the KJV says, but it makes no sense. I looked at other versions (new, modern, current English) and they said we are saved by our faith IN Christ and not the faith OF Christ.
Okay, what I referenced were the actual Greek words. How does that not make sense? Do you not believe we are saved solely by what Christ did?

Christ's faithfulness was in that He accomplished, and will accomplish, all that the Father desired(s) Him to accomplish.

[1Th 5:24 KJV] 24 Faithful [is] he that calleth you, who also will do [it].

I can provide more references if you'd like

One of Christ's names is even Faithful (and True)

[Rev 19:11 KJV]
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
