Top 6 New Faith-Based Summer Movies
Three of these family-friendly films were inspired by real-life stories.
“I Still Believe” is the inspiring story of award-winning Christian music artist Jeremy Camp. The movie was released to Blu-ray and DVD on May 5, 2020. KJ Apa, Shenia Twain, and Gary Sinise star in this inspiring true-life story about Camp’s first wife and the hit song inspired by her tragic death.
The box-office hit film “I Can Only Imagine” will make its U.S. cable premiere on the UPtv network on Sept. 5. “I Can Only Imagine” is the inspiring true story behind MercyMe’s beloved, chart topping song of the same name. The movie stars Dennis Quaid, J. Michael Finley, Trace Adkins, Madeline Carroll and Cloris Leachman. Much like the song, the film brings hope and is a gripping reminder of the power of true forgiveness. UPtv will debut the film Saturday, September 5 at 9 p.m. ET and Sunday, September 6 at 7 p.m.
The new movie ‘2 Hearts’ is also based on a true story. Inspired by the Bacardi Rum family, the movie is an inspirational story about the love and resolve of two couples that intersect unexpectedly. “2 Hearts” will only be in theaters on September 11. The movie stars Jacob Elordi, Tiera Skovbye, Adan Canto, and Radha Mitchell.

The faith-based movie “The Reliant” stars Kevin Sorbo, Brian Bosworth, and Eric Roberts. This film is on Netflix and features an exciting plot that should resonate with viewers, but the movie falls victim to too many over-bearing faith references. In addition, Sorbo is not in most of the movie. The movie is fast-paced and encouraging nonetheless, and would make for good family viewing. Rated PG-13.
‘Healing River’ is an independent, faith-based movie about forgiveness. The movie is about being able to forgive those who have wronged us when forgiveness seems impossible when a woman’s only son is killed by a drug-addicted driver. The court system fails her, so she pursues justice on her own. Rated PG-13
The family-friendly, faith-based film ‘Switched’ is coming to video on demand + DVD in Sept. & Oct. The movies stars Miya Horcher, Madeleine Byrne, John Schneider, Vanessa Merrell and others. It reveals what happens when two teens switch lives and discover what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes.
