If we are, we're not called to be silent, top-secret Christians.
Jesus told us to spread the good news. So, spread the word!
Words and actions.
Act like a Christian. Talk like a Christian, Walk like a Christian. Let it be known.
The athletes on this website are doing that.
Some doing more than most. (Tebow, Bubba, Bethany, Baddeley, Zach Johnson, Steven Jackson)
"We as Christians are called to be humble. And if we really understand the gospel, we will be humble. We should be humble, and understand that everything that is good comes from God."
"To understand that I'm not playing for anything on this earth, I'm playing for my prize in heaven, for the upward call that Paul talks about, that's what I need to remind myself every day when I wake up."
Headed for Cooperstown
"My life's goal is to bring glory to Jesus. My life is not mostly dedicated to the Lord, it is 100% committed to Jesus Christ and His will. God has given me the ability to succeed in the game of baseball. But baseball is not the end; baseball is the means by which my wife, Dee Dee, and I glorify God. Baseball is simply my platform to elevate Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior."
And He said to them,
“Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation."
What are YOU doing?
Does everyone know your love & passion for Christ?
If not, why not?
TENNIS' ALL-TIME GREATEST
"It was very nice and a big honour to meet the pope,' said the Swiss. 'They told him who I was and we shook hands and exchanged a few words in German.'
'It was special of course, I am Catholic. This was just the perfect day."
PGA TOUR CHAMPION
"At about age of 19 was when I really started growing in my relationship with Christ, that I understood it was a relationship and not a religion. It's a relationship of being close to Him and growing in the knowledge of the Bible and sort of a changing of the person."
3 SUPER BOWL RECORD GAMES
"If you ever really want to do a story about who I am, God's got to be at the centerof it. Every time I hear a piece or read a story that doesn't have that, they're missing the whole lesson of who I am."
HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER
“Well, being outspoken about my Christian faith isn't just something that I do; it's who I am because my faith isn't just a little piece of my life. It is my life." "It's OK to be outspoken about your faith," Tebow said.
TEBOW HEADLINES EASTER SERVICE
Tim also took a shot at professional athletes who insist they are not role models.
"Yes you are. You're just not a good one," Tebow said.
Asked Tebow what he thought needed to change culturally in America. "First and foremost is what this country was based on: one nation under God. The more that we can get back to that," Tebow said to applause.
"It was Jesus Christ who gave me peace when I was attacked by the shark. They had to get me to the beach, which took 20 minutes of paddling. 'The peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus' (Philippians 4:6-8)."
"It was what God had taught me growing up that helped me overcome my fear. 'Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go' (Joshua 1:9)."
WE ARE ALL SECOND
"Every decision, I try to make it for God and use the right judgment. I really wanna spread the word of Jesus." -Jason Witten
Jason Witten turned himself into a perennial Pro-Bowler on and off the field. He knows there is always going to be a light at the end of the tunnel as long as he follows the words of Jesus.
"I'm successful in life because I have Jesus Christ living inside of me." -Colt McCoy
Colt just defeated the Dallas Cowboys this 2014-15 season, as a 10-point underdog for the atrocious Washington Redskins.
"I'm not doing it by myself. I know the Lord is with me" -Sam Bradford
Sam Bradford set records at the University of Oklahoma, was the NFL's #1 overall draft pick in 2010, and was named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2010.
He's shown promise wit the Rams but has had the worst luck with injuries.
While very sad, Sam knows the true BIGGEST picture, and it won't detour him from that path.
NFL ALL-PRO WIDE RECEIVER
"I believe in God.
God controls my fate. Whatever God's plan is, I will follow.
Faith in God, a positive mind set,and hard work will take u a long way."
REGGIE WHITE: R.I.P.
AT THE LEFT HAND OF THE FATHER
"I've always done my best to Honor the name of Jesus."
"I didn't do it my way. I tried to make sure I did it God's way."
Reggie White was the most powerful Christian in all of sports when he was playing, but his journey took some very strange turns, and he traveled many miles, and hours, before his too-soon death.
Wimbledon, US Open, French Open Champion, is proud and faithful enough to wear her Cross on the court for millions of people to see. I love that!
I have not heard her, yet, be brave enough to preach anything from the Gospel, however.
Come on Maria! This world needs vocal, beautiful, female role models to counteract the Kardashian, Iggy Azalia, Ariana Grande, regular Hollywood despicable morals bad influences as well as the progressive, liberal media.
2011 U.S. Open & 2012 PGA Championship Winner
Rory McIlroy was raised a Catholic in middle-class, largely-Protestant Holywood, attended a non-sectarian grammar school and became friends with many Protestants.
He is a true Christian, and as he matures and gets older, is becoming braver to the point that he now usually wears his Christian necklace bearing the Cross.
Bubba Watson just won the Masters. In his news conference after being awarded the green jacket, he was asked about why it was special to win on Easter.
"This is the day Jesus is risen. Good Friday was when He was crucified on the cross, and today is Easter where we celebrate He's risen.
For us, that's salvation to go to Heaven. He took all of our sins from us. So for me, it's just a dream come true."
2012 & 2014 Masters Champion
2012 Olympic Gold Medal Winner
"I wanted to perform for sharing God's Glory.
Every morning, my mom would text me a morning scripture.
I would meditate on that on the bus.
She would also send me long e-mail with scripture every night.
I love reading about the Word.
You have to rely on God. All things are possible to those who believe in God."
2012 U.S. Indoor Champion & 2010 World Indoor Champion & American Indoor Record Holder (7.72)
Lolo faced radical, extreme insults from the liberal American media leading into and during the 2012 London Olympics.
She handled it with class and poise, despite a hearbreaking finish that left her just short of a medal. She also got some criticism from jealous teammates who didn't like her receiving media attention.
Lolo tweeted this after the heartbreak: “In room singing Desert Song by Hillsong. It’s on repeat. Lord Jesus please comfort me, guide me, and heal my broken heart,” Jones tweeted on Tuesday after failing to place in the women’s 100-meter hurdles final.
Who are We?
What is our Purpose?
We are Christians-First, and SportsFans-Second.
We believe that many admired, famous, and wealthy sports stars can have as much positive influence on kids and adults with teaching them about Jesus, the Bible, scripture as they do with their many product pitches and endorsements.
We think we, together, can help many people learn verses from the Bible in a fun and more effective way than anything else out there we’ve ever seen, at least for sports fans.
What we do is we design, create, produce, and distribute Scripture Cards and our artist creates a Christian on the back side, similar to Topps baseball cards that millions of kids have grown up with, learning statistics and facts about the players. They can be a your kid, his/her friend, etc. or they can be your favorite professional Christian athlete.
Each of our cards have a verse from the Bible on the back, which is a fun and easy way for kids and adults to learn more important things than sports statistics.
We add new additions as often as time and resources allow & we distribute them in any manner possible.
"And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."
All the things we’ve faced in our life, if we didn’t have God it wouldn’t be there."
"Lord, I thank you for the 2 1/2 years you gave us little Christian."
-Randall said after his son drowned in their pool
As a die-hard Packer fan, who always roots against the Vikings, if I could change the outcome of any NFL game ever, I would go back and have those 1998 Vikings not blow that NFC Championship game to the Falcons. I wish Randall would have made that Super Bowl against the Denver Broncos.
Pastor Randall understands who all our real father is. We can all learn from him!

"He’s religious enough that he attends the PGA Tour Bible study meetings....."
Kershaw's career ERA is the lowest among starters in the live-ball era with a minimum of 1,000 innings pitched.
He is also a three time Cy Young Award winner and the 2014 National League Most Valuable Player.
In 2011, he won the pitching Triple Crown and the National League Cy Young Award, becoming the youngest pitcher to accomplish either of these feats since Dwight Gooden in 1985.
Kershaw pitched a no-hitter on June 18, 2014, becoming the 22nd Dodger to do so. Being a left-handed strikeout pitcher and playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Kershaw has often been compared to Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax.
He is the first pitcher in history to lead MLB in ERA for four consecutive years (2011–14).
We believe the life, the soul of EACH person, each kid, is PRICELESS. What we do is give Scripture Cards, which feature a Christian Athlete Artistic Rendition, and we give them to kids, churches, VBS, etc. We also give away wrist-band/bracelets.
Kids love them, and hopefully it leads to getting some kids to follow HIS path to Heaven! We rely almost solely on your generous donations, and we are happy to provide you or your church with scripture cards for you to spread His word. We appreciate your support, big or small.
We are a 501-C Non-Profit Organization based in Texas.
ANDRE IGUODALA: "I want to thank all the chaplains across the NBA for helping us out every single night," he continued. "This is awesome. We talked about about staying strong - stay with it. We modeled the whole playoffs, stay with it. They kept fighting. This is unreal. Unreal." In a separate post game interview, the 31-year-old athlete was asked, "In what way did your sacrifice of coming off the bench embody the sacrifice of this entire group?"
"We got a team full of believers. We all go to chapel before every game. We all believe and we all say God has a way for you - a purpose for you. This is my purpose," he responded. He later added, "I want to be just like Steph (Curry) when I grow up - just a God fearing man, great guy."
In the past, Curry has also explained that he wants to point the people to Jesus "the Man who died for our sins on the cross. I know I have a place in Heaven waiting for me because of Him, and that's something no earthly prize or trophy could ever top."
