Pure Flix Movie List: Ten Free Films and Original Series Impacting Culture for Christ

Pure Flix, the faith-based entertainment production and distribution company founded in Scottsdale, Arizona, has a simple mission: influence culture, inspire the human spirit, and share the gospel of Jesus Christ by providing positive and uplifting entertainment safe for the whole family.

And they’ve done exactly that. Since 2005, the company has produced, distributed, and acquired thousands of Christ centered movies, documentaries and TV series, including the $60 million-grossing film "God's Not Dead."

In 2015, Pure Flix launched a streaming video services,, which like Netflix and Hulu, offers the first month free and gives viewers the option to choose from thousands of titles without paying a fee. Unlike other popular streaming services, however, screens every documentary, family sitcom, and inspirational short film offered to ensure it’s safe for the whole family.

We live in a sight and sound culture -- and like it or not, exposure to screens is unavoidable. Statistics show that on average, American adults are watching five hours and four minutes of television per day. About 50 percent of Americans now have subscription services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu in their homes, and that number is only increasing.

In turn, children aged five to 16 spend an average of six and a half hours a day in front of a screen compared with around three hours in 1995, according to market research firm Childwise. Estimates are that by the age of 17, the average child will have consumed 65,000 hours of media, whether it’s watching TV, playing games consoles, using a mobile, computer or tablet.

Research has also shown that better or worse, media has an enormous impact on our -- and our children’s -- values, beliefs, and behaviors. Children who view violent acts on TV are more likely to show aggressive behavior and may become less sensitive to the pain and suffering of others. Additionally, the more sexual content that kids see on television, the earlier they initiate sexual activity.

The message is clear: filling your kids’ heads with positive and uplifting content is of the utmost importance. Because 100% of the content available on is a clean, safe alternative to much of what Hollywood puts out, monitoring your family’s media consumption is made easy. Instead of grabbing the remote to skip over scenes filled with sexual innuendo, violence, and inappropriate language, you’ll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy Christ-centered entertainment with the whole family.

Following a free, 30-day trial, the Pure Flix streaming service is available for $10.99/month or an annual subscription at $99.99. They’re always adding new titles, too, so your family will never get bored. Films and other programs can be streamed through your computer, tablet, smartphone, and many TV extensions like Roku, Apple TV, and Google Chromecast.

The following is a list of 10 movies and original Pure Flix series that families can enjoy together on for free during the trial period.
