The success of faith-based films in recent years has led to a resurgence of Christian movies being made by Hollywood filmmakers. 

2019 is expected to echo 2018 and be a blockbuster year for Christian films, as the Tim Tebow-backed production "Run the Race" has already brought in over $4 million domestically at the Box Office.

Last year, the film "I Can Only Imagine" brought in $17.1 million domestically during its opening weekend, and over $83 million in total, superseding expectations. And the movie "Paul, Apostle of Christ" was among the top 10 films at the box office during its opening weekend.

Here's a list of six faith-based movies coming out this spring.

'The Islands' (March 22)

"The Islands" is based on the true story of Hawaiian Queen Chiefess Kapiolani who came to faith in Jesus Christ over 200 years ago. Her conversion made such an impact that it brought Christianity to all of the Hawaiian islands.

Her conversion to Christianity was "considered the greatest act of moral courage by any world leader," the filmmakers said in a statement shared with The Christian Post. 

The Tim Chey film was shot in Hawaii and features newcomer Teuria Shanti Napa as Chiefess along with Academy Award-winning actress Mira Sorvino and actor John Savage who play Boston missionaries who arrive in Hawaii in 1821. Many of the lead characters in the movie include native Hawaiians and Polynesians.
