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:
