The stars of the popular reality TV program "Duck Dynasty" say they are proud of their Christian faith and happy to display it.

Willie and Korie Robertson, the husband-and-wife duo at the center of the "Duck Dynasty" franchise, told FOX 411 that their program has give them an opportunity to share their values with the public.

"In our everyday lives, there's always this opportunity to explain your faith to people who are not believers and people want to know how you live your life," Willie Robertson said.

That opportunity began with their hit reality show, and has continued into other ventures, including an appearance in the coming film "God’s Not Dead," starring Kevin Sorbo. The Robertsons make a cameo appearance in the film, playing themselves when they answer a reporter’s question about their faith.

"We're not trying to offend anybody," Willie Robertson tells the reporter in the film, according to FOX411. "As far as my praying to Jesus, my life and my whole eternity belong to God. The money, fame, success — temporary. Even life is temporary. Jesus, that's eternal."

"Duck Dynasty" has been a ratings boon for the A&E channel, but the show, now in its fifth season, has shown signs of decline, according to Vulture.  The ratings slide may be owing in part to remarks made by one of the cast members in an interview with GQ Magazine that were widely seen as homophobic. 

The Robertsons didn’t discuss that incident with Fox, and instead talked about how their faith is portrayed on the show.

"We don't feel like we're shoving any religion down anyone's throats," Willie Robertson said. "We're just being ourselves, it's positive. To us, just saying a prayer at the end [has had] a huge impact, but in our lives saying a prayer's not that big a deal. We do that all the time."

"God and our faith is what sustains us," Korie Robertson told FOX411. "It's what makes our life good."
