Christians in Hollywood, Entertainment & Athletics

This is a short list of well known Christians (and a few who have passed on), from Hollywood, the entertainment industry and from athletics.  The list is taken from Mark Spears‘ video, which is available below.

Jesus meant and means a whole lot to them and they were willing to go on the public record to confirm that, “I am a Christian.”

If you can provide more, please do comment below and we’ll add them to the list in recognition of their commitment to Christ Jesus as Lord.

Remember, as 2 Timothy 2:12 reads:

“If we endure,
We shall also reign with Him.
If we deny Him,
He also will deny us.”
