10 Powerful Movies That Will Restore Your Faith In God

By Movieguide® Contributor

The Bible says in 1 Peter 5:10, “And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” This encouraging word from the Lord teaches that while believers may face suffering, God is there to restore our faith when we feel weak. This curated list of films features characters who overcome trials with hope and trust in Christ. For those who may be facing a difficult time, take heart knowing that He gives us strength to win the battle.

DO YOU BELIEVE?

-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
DO YOU BELIEVE? is an incredibly powerful movie that follows 12 different people through their individual struggles with faith, trial, pain and loss and how the power of the Cross makes each of these lives intersect. DO YOU BELIEVE? is exceptionally well made with great performances and a life changing Christian message, but a light caution is advised for young children due to some mature elements.

GOD'S NOT DEAD

GOD’S NOT DEAD is an entertaining, profound, powerful Christian movie about a college student who has to stand up for his faith when bullied by an atheist professor. Despite some of the smartest dialogue ever, GOD’S NOT DEAD entertains viewers as well as enlightens and inspires them. The ending is terrific.

MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN

MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN is a heartrending, faith-affirming drama about the true story of a 12-year-old girl suffering from a very serious medical disorder. The cast and the filmmakers do a beautiful job making this story come alive.

RISEN

****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
RISEN is about a Roman soldier and non-believer, who hunts for Jesus Christ’s body, not realizing that Jesus has risen from the dead. RISEN is almost like the follow up movie to Mel Gibson’s THE PASSION, with some war violence and killing, but with a powerful Christian, biblical worldview promoting the reality of Jesus Christ’s physical resurrection.

LETTERS TO GOD

LETTERS TO GOD is an entertaining, heart-rending, and inspiring story about a boy with cancer whose letters to God change the lives of the people around him. LETTERS TO GOD is an impressive, well-written, redemptive, powerful movie that will touch the hearts of most people who see it.

END OF THE SPEAR

Content:
+1 Moderately questionable elements. (Discernment required for young children.)
END OF THE SPEAR is a powerful, dramatic retelling of the story of five missionaries and their widows who brought the Gospel to a vicious tribe in the Amazon in the 1950s. Unlike other attempts to depict this redemptive story, END OF THE SPEAR is extremely powerful and authentic.

PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is a profound, inspiring movie experience about Paul’s last days in a Roman prison as Luke comes to visit Paul and starts to write about the Book of Acts under Paul’s direction. Brilliantly made and acted in many places, PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is a must-see, soul-stirring movie for mature audiences with a strong Christian, biblical worldview that imparts valuable, inspiring and profound Christian messages.

GOD BLESS THE BROKEN ROAD

Quality:
****
Content:
+1 Moderately questionable elements. (Discernment required for young children.)
GOD BLESS THE BROKEN ROAD tells a profound, poignant story of a war widow named Amanda who gets angry at God, loses her faith, and is brought to her knees to restore her life. The movie is very clean and evangelical, with brief war violence and deep, insightful discussions about why bad things happen to good people.

BREAKTHROUGH (2019)

BREAKTHROUGH is a must-see, entertaining, powerful, convicting, heartrending story about the real-life incident of a boy who fell through some ice and had no pulse for a longer period than any doctor thought possible when he then miraculously revived. Each character, believers and unbelievers, undergoes a tremendous journey in BREAKTHROUGH, an inspiring movie that will make you laugh and cry.

THE YOUNG MESSIAH

Quality:
****
Content:

THE YOUNG MESSIAH is about the young Jesus living in Egypt with Mary and Joseph and then returning to Israel. It is extremely powerful and emotional, and represents all the elements of who Jesus was in an allegorical, dramatic way.
