The 21 Best Christian Movies on Netflix To Watch Tonight

After a long week of work, sometimes the best thing to do is kick your feet up, grab a bowl of popcorn, and watch a good movie that'll lift your spirits and make you smile. Inspiring movies with positive messaging that the whole family can enjoy can be hard to come by. But now, thanks to Netflix's wide range of faith-based films, the most uplifting flicks can be waiting in your queue with a few taps of your mouse.

You may even recognize a few familiar faces, like Jennifer Lopez, Renee Zellweger, and Morgan Freeman (though he doesn't voice God in any of these flicks, surprisingly enough). From heartwarming stories about characters losing their faith and finding it again to hilarious cartoons based on Bible stories that the kids will love, these Christian movies on Netflix are exactly the kind of thing you've been looking to watch during a long weekend.
