Pastor Evan Bennett takes on more than he bargained for when he arrives in Connersville, Indiana, to settle into his new role at Egypt Valley Community Church. Out of funds and out of touch with the community, Evan's new church needs a strong leader to stand up to tradition. Inspired by the challenge, Evan and several members of the congregation set out to rebuild relationships, repair the broken-down facility, and refill the church's bank account.
When a major spending issue threatens the church's very survival, Evan steps in with a controversial budget proposal. However, his cuts to the foreign missions spending does not sit well with the Haman family and the traditional members who cling to the seven deadly words: "We've never done it that way before." Soon, what begins as a debate over giving becomes a holy war with Evan as the target.
Inspired by actual events, this powerful drama about faith, betrayal, victory, and survival will delight you, surprise you, and inspire you to know that sometimes, questioning the status quo can lead to the best outcome of all.

richardsscottj5 Stars Out Of 5The Guiding LightJanuary 31, 2015richardsscottjQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In every business you see this unwillingness to change; an organization set in their ways so to speak. A church isnt immune to this. I see this more and more as I head into changing my career path into the ministry. I see churches divided on issues all the time. It depends on how deep you have hands in there but it happens more than you would like to believe. When I see the challenges I have to face changing my path, it makes me want to run. I believe true inspiration comes when you can see you are not alone in your challenges. The message behind Seven Deadly Words sticks with me and allows me to continue. To me that is the definition of faith-based filmmaking.
Christian Mom5 Stars Out Of 5Inspiring Movie!January 30, 2015Christian MomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This movie, Seven Deadly Words, is not only entertaining, but it also makes us as Christians (who are supposed to be like Christ) evaluate how our churches are handling issues of conflict and change. Unfortunately things like this do happen in some churches, and this film shows how this Pastor and his family respond to severe challenges within the church standing firm in their faith and relying on God. It is a movie that would be a great study tool for every church, because all churches will face "change" at one time or another. My family and I have watched it together and everyone loved it. Great film! I highly recommend it!
Christian dad2 Stars Out Of 57 Deadly WordsNovember 23, 2014Christian dadQuality: 2Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1After ready the movie review it sounds like a good movie. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I pray our churches in America are not like what this movies portrays (a business, leaders are bitter even to the point of using a gun to get their way, etc). Very troubling movie.
