Steph Curry has never been shy about his Christian faith as an NBA star, but that doesn’t mean he will quote Bible verses in every interview either.

While gracing the cover of the new May/June 2016 issue of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes FCA Magazine, Curry explains that he won’t always have a Bible verse to share publicly.

“I’m not a guy who’s going to be trying to bash people over the head with the Bible,” he said in the magazine. “I want people to know when they see me play that something is different, that I play for something different, and whether I’m talking about it [or not], I just hope by the way I carry myself and by the way I play the game, they can see there’s something different about that guy. And they find out what it is and then they know. It’s part of who I am.”

Still, Curry insists that his faith plays a vital role in his professional career where he just made history with a second consecutive NBA MVP honor, achieved by a unanimous vote.

“I’ve always been a believer that the Lord has put whatever talent in you, [and] whatever gift He has put in you, He wants you to get the most out of that. He wants you to succeed,” Curry says. “He wants you to pursue and work and be passionate about it. It’s not about getting any of the glory for yourself; it’s all for His [glory]. That’s where you have to keep perspective. Work at it and do all you can so you get the most out of yourself, but do it for His will.”
