Despite the global pandemic, faith-based films continue to inspire and uplift the souls of millions online. And this coming summer and fall, new Christian movies will once again touch the hearts of millions.
Movie theaters are closed nowadays due to state lockdowns in response to COVID-19. However, this led to streaming services that movie producers offer to audiences online.
And this coming summer and fall, some new Christian movies will “spearhead the reopening of movie theaters in the U.S.”, while other films will be streamed online.
Here’s a list of the seven new Christian Movies to watch out for:
“Switched” is a faith-based film that will be released on Sept. 4. The movie is about Cassandra Evans and Katie Sharp who woke up one day discovering that “they’ve switched bodies.”
The synopsis reads, “Tired of being bullied, Cassandra Evans prays that her nemesis Katie Sharp, the queen bee of social media, would know what it’s like to walk a day in her shoes. Her prayer is answered in an unexpected way when they get ‘Switched.’”
“When Cassandra Evans and Katie Sharp wake up to discover they’ve switched bodies, the two girls must learn to appreciate both the blessings and struggles the other faces on a daily basis, in school, and at home. Packed with life lessons of forgiveness, perspective, encouragement, and understanding, ‘Switched’ will help teenagers who are searching for their worth in looks and popularity to find their true identity in Christ.”
2. Queen Esther
Apparently, the “Queen Esther” live performance was “scheduled for its nine-month run in the 2,000-seat theater at Sight & Sound’s studio in Pennsylvania.” But due to COVID-19 restrictions, it was halted. Hence, the stage production will present its “first-ever live worldwide broadcast” on Sept. 4 at 7 p.m. Eastern time.
Katie Miller, Sight & Sound corporate communications manager told CP earlier this month, “This year has been incredibly challenging, but we continue to see the faithfulness of God each step of the way. After canceling over 200 shows, and knowing that hundreds of thousands of people would not be able to experience the powerful message of ‘Queen Esther,’ we knew we had to do something.”
Then she added, “With the future still uncertain, not knowing when we will be able to welcome full crowds again, we prayerfully began walking toward the idea of the first-ever live broadcast of a Sight & Sound show. We are so thrilled to be taking this next step of extending the ministry beyond our walls and offering ‘Queen Esther Live!'”
3. The Order Of Rights
“The Order Of Rights” is a pro-life film that will be released on October 2 on the streaming platforms of Amazon, Google, and VUDU. The movie centers on the main character Emma Stein who is “a pregnant single girl who has been advised by her mother to have an abortion despite the objection of the child’s young Christian father, Ethan Carpenter.”

The synopsis reads, “Even as Ethan tries to help her, she decides to go ahead with terminating the pregnancy. Ethan and his family file a lawsuit on behalf of the child’s right to life, and their story moves to prominence as a nationally publicized court case. The court has to decide whether the child in Emma’s womb is a person or not, and if so, is it endowed with the inalienable rights as enumerated in the Declaration of Independence.”
The movie will be available on streaming platforms of Amazon, Google, and VUDU.

4. ‘Small Group The Movie’
‘Small Group The Movie’ is centered on the perspective of a skeptic person who joins a small group in the church. It will be coming out on October 6 on “Digital Rent/Buy via Amazon and iTunes.” As well as “GooglePlay, Vudu, Redbox, Christian Cinema and on DVD via Amazon and other major online platforms.”
Filmmaker Matt Chastain told The Christian Post:
“In 2014, my wife and I had joined a small group at our church. The whole experience just felt so much more real and genuine and interactive than other church experiences I’d had. It was early on, maybe in the second meeting. When I was kind of given the idea: this is a story that needs to be told! Somebody oughta make a movie called ‘Small Group’! Being too dumb to know what an undertaking it would actually be to do it right. I decided to write a screenplay and make a movie!”
5. ‘Never Again’
The movie “Never Again” is a documentary film educating the younger generation “about the history and horrors of modern-day anti-Semitism.”
Christians United for Israel, the largest pro-Israel organization in the U.S founder and chairman, Pastor John Hagee, said in a statement:
“Anti-Semitism is not just a Jewish problem, it’s everyone’s problem. And as Christians, we are mandated by God to stand beside our Jewish brothers and sisters and confront this abomination. Anti-Semitism is evil, and as Christians, we are commanded to fight for good. Anti-Semitism is the personification of darkness and as Christians, we must shine the light. This film brings to Christians a never before seen understanding of anti-Semitism. And explains what we as believers can and must do to rid our society of the world’s oldest hatred.”
The movie will be released on October 13 and 15 in 800 theaters.
6. ‘2 Hearts’
The movie ‘2 Hearts’ is a romance film. It “tells the true story of two couples whose journeys lead them to a life-saving miracle of love and purpose.” Moreover, it showcases how God powerfully moves in a tragic situation, reminding us that He is always in control.
It will be on theaters on October 16.
7. ‘When We Last Spoke’
The film ‘When We Last Spoke’ centers on a heartwarming story of “family, friendship, and forgiveness.”According to CP, it will show in theaters for two nights only, Oct. 27 and 29.
‘When We Last Spoke’ follows the “lovable and nutty family of sisters Juliet and Evangeline.”
The synopsis reads:
‘When We Last Spoke’ gives viewers an insight into the beauty of the Cranbournes as they journey through the ups and downs of their unexpected situation. Life for Juliet and Evangeline changes quickly after their father James departs to fight in the Vietnam War. And their mother, who feels ill-equipped to raise two daughters alone, leaves them with their grandparents. Together, the family learns how to overcome heartbreak and uncertainty. By holding tight to the most important aspects of life — family, friends, love, and forgiveness.”
