There are often times when Christians must lovingly defend their faith. And as culture continues to change, people will likely need to be more engaged and prepared to share what they believe and why they believe it.
Here's a list of faith-based movies that will show you true courage — loving models of how to defend Christianity:
God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness
"God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness" is the first film on this powerful list of faith-based movies. Here's the synopsis: A church destroyed. A congregation silenced. A relationship shattered. Yet even in life's darkest valleys, a small flame can light the way toward healing and hope. After a deadly fire rips through St. James Church, Hadleigh University leaders use the tragedy to push the congregation off campus, forcing the church to defend its rights and bringing together estranged brothers for a reunion that opens old wounds and forces them to address the issues that pulled them apart.
God's Not Dead 2
Then, there's the sequel to "God's Not Dead." When a high school teacher is asked a question in class about Jesus, her response lands her in a battle of choice.
I'm Not Ashamed
"I'm Not Ashamed" is based on the inspiring and powerful true story and journal entries of Rachel Joy Scott, the first student killed in the Columbine high school shooting on April 20, 1999.
Acquitted By Faith
The next movie on our list of faith-based movies about defending faith is "Acquitted By Faith." In the movie, attorney Benjamin Stills is nearly sentenced to prison and finds faith in God after a teenage girl loses her life in an accidental car crash from texting while driving.
Fighting overwhelming challenges, a group of teens fight to defend their privilege to worship, meet, and perform.
Because of Garcia
Chase Morgan would love to live up to his own name and pursue something great. It's his senior year, and he's still as insecure as ever, but Eastglenn High's newest student is about to turn that around. Grácia is a girl with charisma, intelligence and conviction, but she's not as put together as Chase and his best friend O.B. might think. A dark past gives her a unique connection with Bobbi, a misunderstood classmate who has a pushy boyfriend and disconnected father.
