Hollywood may sometimes seem like a place without religion, but a surprising number of Christians have found success in Tinseltown. And they continue to make their strong beliefs known to the public.

Here are 13 Hollywood celebrities who make no secret about their Christian faith:

1. Kevin Sorbo — The star of “God’s Not Dead” and “Hercules” has strong Christian beliefs and conservative values, making those views known while surrounded by Hollywood liberals.

2. Kirk Cameron — The actor, who starred on ABC’s “Growing Pains,” is an Evangelical Christian with strong conservative beliefs. In 2014, he starred in “Saving Christians,” a comedic Christian film that sought to “put Christ back in Christmas.”

3. Melissa Joan Hart — A favorite of TV fans for “Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” she is an outspoken conservative who stars in “God’s Not Dead 2,” in which she plays a teacher comparing the teachings of Jesus Christ to the works of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

4. Patricia Heaton — The star of TV’s “Everybody Loves Raymond” is a Christian pro-lifer who publicly took Rush Limbaugh’s side in blasting Sandra Fluke over free birth control.

5. Chuck Norris — Entertaining TV fans with “Walker, Texas Ranger” and moviegoers with his martial arts skills, Norris is a committed Christian. He regularly writes conservative columns for World Net Daily.

6. Pat Boone — The singing star and actor has asserted his Christian beliefs since the days when he was a “teen idol.” The longtime Republican received a lifetime achievement award from the Conservative Political Action Conference.

7. Alice Cooper — Once a shock rocker, the singer, songwriter, and musician, whose real name is Vincent Damon Furnier, became a born-again Christian conservative with strong creationist beliefs.

8. Stephen Baldwin — He has long made his born-again Christian faith known while being an actor, producer, author, director, and star of “Threesome” and “The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas.”

9. Tyler Perry — "It is extremely important. I am a Christian, I am a believer, and I know had I not been a person of faith, I couldn't be here in this place, and I wouldn't be walking the path that I'm on now," the producer, actor, and director said in an interview at the beginning of his Hollywood career. "And I think the greater good of the path I'm on now is to teach people to learn to forgive and move on, in a way that's done through the healing power of humor."

10. Stacey Dash — The "Clueless" actress turned Fox News contributor and author of "There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative" isn’t shy about her conservative values, and that includes her Christian faith.

11. Jim Caviezel — The "Passion of the Christ" actor himself has strong religious principles. "You have to take Jesus Christ into your life every day," he told an audience during a 2014 speech at Rock Church in San Diego. "He's the one that encourages you to fast, to not just pray once a week. The Gospel is real! It's not something you just put away."

12. Mel Gibson — An actor and Academy Award-winning director, Gibson directed “Passion of the Christ,” considered by many Christians to be one of the greatest movies to come out of Hollywood. After some setbacks, his “Passion of the Christ 2” could put him back on top.

13. Victoria Jackson — The one-time "Saturday Night Live" comedienne took a break to marry and raise two daughters, but now performs in Christian movies and religious-themed comedy acts.
