6 Christian Movies I recommend (found at our local library)

6 must see Christian movies for families.


When I said “Christian movies” was your response a yawn? Well, these six movies have a powerful message to them and I highly recommend them all. I’m looking forward to seeing some of these again soon.


And, since its my husband’s policy to not pay-to-rent movies, period – and like ever, it seems. (Because he’s frugal like that :)  ). He’s always borrowing movies from the library, or rather, any of the libraries in Stark County or a couple in Akron and that is where he found these. Of course, you can buy them too.


My husband loves to watch movies so we get quite a variety brought home from the silent black and whites to the chic flicks to the action-packed spy type. Unfortunately, there is a lot of dirt in some movies from bad language, unnecessary violence, gore and – you know what else. Sometimes we start a movie only to stop it because of inappropriate content.


These six movies you won’t have to worry about. The first two we just watched recently and the other four we’ve seen further back, but I’m ready to rewatch some of them. And, I am using my Amazon affiliate links in this post. I’m also just giving you a little info on them and you can read the reviews through my links for more info. All of these have been around for some time, but just in case you haven’t seen them, I don’t want to spoil the endings.


Go here for: Time Changer

This had an incredible message in it and I can hardly think of a way to make it any clearer then this movie did! You’ve got to watch it if you haven’t yet, and have your kids watch it with you.  LOVED it!   Rating: 4.2 Stars & 220 Reviews



Go here for: The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry

There were some  “yawn” moments here, I felt it had a slow start and I was disappointed that it wasn’t truly based on a true story. It’s set up as if it is based on a true story though and I searched the internet to find out if it were based on a literal true story. But the message, again, and the practical object lessons Mr. Sperry shared with the boys were priceless. Definitely gave me food for thought.

My husband is a teacher in our children’s ministry and I think he could really relate to Mr. Sperry’s example. Bottom-line, God can do the things presented in this movie in real-life. Watch this movie, with your kids. I would want to rewatch it just for the lessons.

Rating:  4.8 Stars and 157 Reviews



Go here for: Facing The Giants

Okay, so this is one I want to see again. It’s been months since we’ve seen it. David and Goliath, anyone?

Rating: 4.7 Stars &  880 Reviews



Go here for: Courageous

Who hasn’t heard of this one, right? A call-to-action for all dads to be the godly leader that God calls them to be for their families.

Rating:  4.7 Stars & 1165 Reviews



Go here for: Flywheel

Another one I want to see again. Dishonesty in business, making amends and how God can work these things out. Do what’s right, you’re not alone.

Rating: 4.7 Stars & 399 Reviews



Go here for: Fireproof

Another well known movie.  Marriage isn’t just a good idea that God invented – he has a purpose for it beyond making babies. Marriage is a physical picture of a spiritual reality and we all know how marriage is under attack in our ungodly world. Watch this with your spouse.

Rating:  4.5 Stars & 1214 Reviews


While searching for these movies on Amazon I noticed that Fireproof, Flywheel, and Facing the Giants also come in this  all-in-one set:  Fireproof / Facing the Giants / Flywheel (Triple Feature).

Are any of these “new” to you?

  1. My family has watched all of them and loved the last four. I can’t even pick which of the 4 were my favorite- they were all great. Have you watched October Baby? That one was great too.

    • Not yet, but now that you mention it I’ll have my library-guru of a husband find it. Thanks!

  2. I’ve never seen Time Changer, but will plan to now. I love, love, love all the movies from Sherwood Pictures. Facing the Giants and Courageous are my favorite movies. Just can’t pick one.

  3. Thanks for sharing these! We are also always on the lookout for “clean” movies. Have you watched Faith Like Potatoes? We really enjoyed that. We also enjoyed Sweet Land – not Christian per say, but just a good love story with no violence, etc. Keep the movie suggestions coming!

    • I’m not familiar with either of those, we may have to look for them at the library too, thanks :) .

  4. I’m not a big TV or movie watcher, but I do enjoy a good quality movie on occasion. I’ve seen both Fireproof and Courageous, but the others are new to me. Thanks for the recommendations!

  5. I really enjoyed this article! I have seen just about every film mentioned here. I would second the “Faith Like Potatoes” suggestion and also add “No Greater Love” to the list. Along with a bit of shameless self-promotion, I’d recommend my film, “No Lost Cause.” You can find it on amazon or by going to http://www.nolostcausedvd.com! I welcome reviews and input! :)

  6. Rich Christiano (made Time Changer and Jonathan Sperry) is currently filming his next movie “A Matter of Faith.” It should be out in 2014.
