Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that I'm in Love With a Church Girl is a faith-based film about a former drug dealer who turns his life to God with the help of his Christian girlfriend. Based on the life of pastor and former California drug smuggler Galley Molina, the movie was produced not just to entertain but to evangelize, so the main message is how even a former criminal can find forgiveness, acceptance, and love through God's grace. There's no language or sex scenes (although there are a few chaste kisses and mentions of sex), but there are a few moments in a nightclub when grown-ups drink alcohol, some overt brand placements (mostly cars), and a couple of moments when criminals or cops wield guns.

Sexual Content

A few kisses and mentions of sex (in addition to a sensual Bible verse from Song of Solomon) as well as one scene in which a provocatively dressed woman flirts and snuggles up to Miles. Miles admits he slept with a woman he introduces to Vanessa.


The cops arrest suspects at gunpoint. Miles protects his friends by pulling a gun on a rival.


Insults like "stupid," and "coward," plus a few "damn"s.

Social Behavior

Strong faith-based messages: God can transform a man's life; even the most notorious criminal can have a change of heart through the grace of God, and other Bible-based themes.


Miles drives a Bentley that is shown in many scenes, and there's a lingering close-up of the Lamborghini a pastor drives into the church parking lot. Vanessa drives a Sebring convertible. Apple products are also depicted.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Miles is a former drug dealer, a fact that's mentioned again and again in the movie. There's drinking or alcohol present in a few nightclub scenes, but it's all adults drinking.
