I’ve been a Jeremy Camp fan for years. I have listened to his music, and actually got to volunteer at his merchandise table for the Rock and Worship Roadshow in 2013. I never got to actually meet him, but it was still fun!! Hearing the story of his life, and the things he had been through – while still coming back to God was huge! I couldn’t imagine going through the loss of a loved one at his young age. What a spirit for the Lord, he must have had hidden in his heart. Seeing where he has gone, and what he has done for the glory of the Lord, just shows that we can get through anything with just a little bit of prayer and love from others!
The movie itself, was amazing! I loved how it showed that if you want something, and are willing to work, you could get it. Seeing Jeremy as a young adult and the things that he went through, really make me feel more for the words of his songs. I’m sure this movie will be a blessing to many, and maybe help some that are going through the things that he did, have some hope. Seeing how God can work through just a few people, really makes you wonder just what you can do for yourself and others!
The movie is now available online for you, too! Find out how you can get it below.

About the I Still Believe Movie:
I Still Believe is a 2020 American Christian musical romantic drama film directed by the Erwin Brothers and starring KJ Apa, Britt Robertson, Shania Twain, Melissa Roxburgh and Gary Sinise. It is based on the life of American contemporary Christian music singer-songwriter Jeremy Camp and his first wife, Melissa Lynn Henning-Camp, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer shortly before they married. Camp’s song “I Still Believe” is the film’s namesake.
In Lafayette, Indiana, September 1999, Jeremy Camp (KJ Apa) departs for Calvary Chapel College in Murrieta, California. The night of his arrival, he goes to a concert of Canadian Christian band, the Kry, where he meets the lead singer, Jean-Luc LaJoie (Daniel Parsons), who become fast friends with Jeremy, who comes to him for musical advice. After the concert, Jeremy meets Melissa Henning (Britt Robertson), a fellow student at his school, and friend of Jean-Luc, who loves Melissa, but Melissa does not reciprocate the feeling. The pair get to know each other, and quickly begin dating, causing a rift among Jeremy, Melissa, and Jean-Luc. As a result, Melissa ends her relationship with Jeremy.
Jeremy goes back to his family in Indiana for Christmas break. A few days after Christmas, Jeremy receives a phone call from Jean-Luc, saying that Melissa is sick, and asks Jeremy to come back to California. Upon his arrival, Jeremy visits Melissa in the hospital, who tells him that she has been diagnosed with Stage 3C cancer in her liver. She also tells Jeremy that she loves him. Jeremy says the same, and proposes to her. She accepts.
During this time, Jeremy begins to make a name for himself as a Christian singer-songwriter. Melissa learns that the cancer has spread to her ovaries, and that she needs a surgery that will leave her infertile. After the surgery was supposed to happen, Melissa wakes up to Jeremy, who tells her the surgery was canceled because she is now cancer-free. Six months later, Jeremy and Melissa wed. Everything seems perfect until after their honeymoon, Melissa wakes up in pain. Jeremy takes her to the hospital, where they find out her cancer has returned, and that nothing more can be done for her.
As Melissa grows weaker, Jeremy begins to question his faith in God. In the hospital, Jeremy sings a song he wrote (Walk By Faith) during their honeymoon. Melissa dies shortly after. Jeremy becomes angry at God, and chooses to abandon his musical career, smashing his guitar until it breaks. Inside it, he finds a note Melissa left for him to find after her death, telling him that suffering does not damage faith, but strengthen it, and encouraging him to continue writing songs. Two years later, Jeremy performs a song he wrote after Melissa’s death (I Still Believe) about his suffering, but eventually restored faith.
After the concert, he meets a girl named Adrienne (Abigail Cowens), who tells Jeremy that she lost someone close to her, and she was angry at God, and his songs changed her life. The film ends with Jeremy promising to share Melissa’s story, believing that God will use it to change lives. The credits reveal that Jeremy and Adrienne got married in 2003, and have three children.
