Suc­cess does not come from one’s self alone. These four celebri­ties know that their faith is al­ways guid­ing them and are not afraid to hide it.

Stephen Curry— This NBA Cham­pion is no stranger to shar­ing his faith with his fans. One of the lead­ing scor­ers in the league, Steph knows why he plays the game of bas­ket­ball. In an in­ter­view with De­ci­sion Mag­a­zine, he shared “I know why I play the game, and it’s not to score 30 points a night, but it’s to use the stage I’m on. I’ve been put here for a spe­cific pur­pose: to be a wit­ness and to share my tes­ti­mony as I go through it.”

Tyler Perry— Hu­mor is not the only thing that the movie maven in­cor­po­rates into his movies. Perry is one of the lead­ers in what is now be­ing called “faith-based en­ter­tain­ment.” Many of his fa­mous char­ac­ters have de­clared their Chris­tian­ity on TV and in movies. He does not back down from hav­ing con­ver­sa­tions sur­round­ing faith.

Selena Gomez— Over the past year, the “Good For You” singer has ex­pe­ri­enced a very se­ri­ous health is­sue of kid­ney fail­ure. Dur­ing this time, she was blessed to have re­ceived a kid­ney match and donor through her best friend and fel­low ac­tress, Fran­cia Raisa. In con­ver­sa­tion about her ex­pe­ri­ence, Gomez shares with re­porters that her faith in God al­lowed her to know that ev­ery­thing would be okay.

Lex Scott Davis— This new Hol­ly­wood “It” girl has risen to star­dom seem­ingly overnight. In just 4 short years, Davis has played the lead in films such as Toni Brax­ton: Un­break My Heart, Superfly, and The First Purge. Davis re­cently took to In­sta­gram shar­ing a photo of her­self pray­ing on set and ex­plain­ing to fol­low­ers that she car­ries her faith into ev­ery room and ev­ery op­por­tu­nity.
