It’s not often you come across religion in Hollywood, much less among the celebrity elite. Yet, hidden within the hearts of a handful of our most beloved stars, the Christian faith flourishes. These faithful celebrities are, or were at one time, the best of the best; they’re the A-Listers.
For these powerful people, fame and fortune haven’t drowned out belief.
Balancing faith and fame isn’t an easy task. When Christ spoke of how difficult it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God, He knew what He was talking about. While money and fame aren’t inherently bad things, they give us something that can destroy faith: the power of choice.
With near-unlimited resources, a celebrity can live any lifestyle, go anywhere, or do anything. When you’re this famous, there’s little need to rely on God, and the constant affirmation and attention from fans and admirers can inflate an ego to epic proportions.
But these celebrities made it through with faith intact, and with that faith comes balance and restraint— you won’t see many of the celebrities on this list--with a few notable exceptions, of course—embroiled in controversy.
When faith and star power combine, great role models are made, and so these celebs are people you’ll actually want to emulate. When the rest of Hollywood is descending into bad example after bad example, you can rest assured that these few will stand out in the best way.
Now, let’s take a look at these a-list celebrities with A-List faith.
