Tracy Melchoir says it's about the message

Actress Tracy Melchior missed the auditions for God’s Not Dead and was determined to be part of the next film Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman wrote called Do You Believe? — which was just released in March 2015.  

Melchior, who plays the wife of the pastor in the movie, tells Zoe Romanowsky at Aleteia Media what the film is about and why she loves its message. Melchior says she has both professional and personal hopes for the movie:

"I hope Hollywood sees you can make films without the nudity, the bad language, and all the things Hollywood seems to think you need to make money… I (also) hope that people who aren’t believers will be introduced to the faith and understand Christians aren’t perfect…"
