This list of celebrities who are Christians is loosely ranked by fame and popularity. A Christian is an individual who believes in the teachings of Jesus Christ. Many famous actors, musicians, and athletes practice Christianity today. Several of these famous folks and Hollywood stars became born-again Christians later in life, while others have been practicing the faith since childhood.
Who is the most famous person who is a Christian? Tom Hanks tops this list. In 2012, Hanks appeared on posters promoting Orthodox Christianity in Russia. Tyler Perry credits his faith as the reason for his success. He says, "I am a Christian, I am a believer, and I know had I not been a person of faith, I couldn't be here in this place, and I wouldn't be walking the path that I'm on now. And I think the greater good of the path I'm on now is to teach people to learn to forgive and move on, in a way that's done through the healing power of humor."Did you know these famous people were Christian, or did their faith surprise you?

Late Show host Stephen Colbert is open about his devout Catholic faith. The comedian and former Colbert Report star taught Catechism for many years, and told GQ, "I was raised in a Catholic tradition. I'll start there. That's my context for my existence, is that I am here to know God, love God, serve God, that we might be happy with each other in this world and with Him in the next—the catechism."
