Dave Christiano started ChristianFilms.com in 1998. "I began in the Christian film industry back in 1985 and early on took a great interest in the history of Christian movies. I've had the chance to view many of the old films that were made years ago. In searching the archives of Christian films, I've tried to offer the best selection of quality messages for Jesus Christ with this website. It's not an exhaustive list, but I feel the quality of selection is unsurpassed."

"The direction for this website is driven by my philosophy of Christian films. If someone is going to call a movie a Christian film, it needs to have a sincere message for Jesus Christ. That is the bottom line for me and makes it quite simple when it comes to selecting which films to offer. I'm looking for message first. I want to make sure every movie we offer has the person or presence of Christ in it."

"If you've come to this website for the first time, and you are uncertain about the importance of having relationship with Christ or the spiritual aspect of life, these movies will help you understand who Jesus is and why it is so vitally important for you to truly know Him."
