In just ten years, Pastor Paul’s modest ministry has grown into a massive megachurch, with thousands of believers coming through its doors each week. But as Paul wrestles with his own faith, he moves to preach a sermon that will shake the foundation of his congregation’s beliefs. Backed by a live choir, The Christians is both epic and intimate, an unflinching look at faith in America — and its power to unite or divide.
