When you are looking for the best Christian and faith-based shows you can stream, the options can seem limited. Although Christian streaming services like Pure Flix obviously offer many Christian TV choices, even mainstream streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Video allow for a wider selection of shows than what you can find on network and cable channels. This list of the best Christian shows on Netflix and other mainstream streaming services shares Bible documentaries, Christian dramas and faith-based children's shows available on popular streaming networks.
Many Bible-based and Christian shows available on streaming are documentary miniseries looking at the historical events of the Bible. Streaming Christian documentaries look at both archaeological evidence as in The Bible's Buried Secrets or following the lives of the people documented in the Bible like in Finding Jesus: Faith. Fact. Forgery. As educational and enjoyable as faith-based documentaries can be, watching shows with Christian themes can be a nice change from both Bible-centric works and non-Christan shows on mainstream networks. The VeggieTales series and family dramas like 7th Heaven offer an enjoyable way to reinforce your faith while watching TV.
Documentaries, children's series, and dramas, of all the different Christian shows available on streaming services, which is the best? Vote up the best Christian or faith-based shows to watch on Netflix, Amazon Video, or Hulu and add any television series with Christian values or focused on faith and the Bible, that we forgot.
