There was an increase in both their quantity and quality. Here are 2014's Must-See Christian Movies!

Based on the life of Rich Mullins, a musical prodigy who rose to Christian music fame and fortune only to walk away and live on a Navajo reservation. An artistic genius, raised on a tree farm in Indiana by a callous father, Rich wrestled all of his life with the brokenness and crippling insecurity born of his childhood.
His songs include "Awesome God" and "Hold Me Jesus".

3.) The Current - Jake is 13, when his world is turned upside-down. He loves living in Chicago, but when big city violence hits a little too close to home his parents buy a campground in rural Minnesota and move the family there. Jake hates living at the campground until he meets Peter, the boy across the river. The two quickly become best friends and God uses this to transform Jake's life in ways he never imagined.
4.) God's Not Dead - Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton, finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class, by his dogmatic and argumentative Professor, who begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words “God Is Dead” on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh find himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future.
5.) Son of God - The life of Jesus Christ. This film spans from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection.
6.) When the Game Stands Tall - Inspired by a true story, this movie is about legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur (Jim Caviezel), who took the De La Salle High School Spartans from obscurity to a 151-game winning streak that shattered all records for any American sport.
7.) Moms Night Out All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation . . . a long-needed moms' night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a paper bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for three hours—what could go wrong?
The Christian Film Industry has made great strides, but it needs our continued support to grow and produce more movies that reflect Christian values.
1. Pray for God to bless this industry. Pray that doors will be opened, and that God will be glorified.
2. Support films with Christian values.- Buy, rent, and go see Christian movies, especially on opening weekend.
3. Share - Invite others to see Christian movies. Tell others about quality faith based movies either in person, through social media., etc.
