Faith Beyond Doubt
Set in 52 AD, Faith Beyond Doubt is the story of Apostle Thomas and his journey to India to spread the message of Jesus. Welcomed by many, rejected by his own, threatened by power and eventually martyred. His struggle and eventual surrender to God’s will gives hope to all. A powerful story of how Faith can eventually triumph over Doubt.
Using experienced overseas production teams from India and Mauritius as well as bringing in key talent from Hollywood, the film will achieve the look and feel of a major motion picture.
Faith Beyond Doubt’s faith affirming narrative, compelling historical action, stunning visuals, along with exceptionally talented international cast is intended to reach a worldwide audience.

What some eminent scholars say about Faith Beyond Doubt
“I thoroughly enjoyed reading the script for Faith Beyond Doubt. I have studied the fates of the apostles of Jesus and it was fascinating to encounter a creative rendition of how Thomas may have brought the gospel to India and ultimately laid down his life. I can’t wait to see the film.”
