Well-known actor and filmmaker Kirk Cameron says Heaven is moving as thousands of Christians rally together to support his new film, "Revive Us."
"I am so thankful and humbled by the excitement, the energy, and the response," Cameron said in a video posted on his Facebook page in response to the feedback his film has received.
The former "Growing Pains" sitcom star said he received news at 3 a.m. on Thursday that select theaters will be showing the film for a third time on Tuesday, Nov. 1.
"I really believe that Heaven is moving and we are changing the conversation," Cameron said.
Filmed in Chicago on Oct. 18, the movie features Pastor Francis Chan, Dr. Ben Carson, Eric Metaxas, Pastor James MacDonald, Jennifer Rothschild, Cameron's daughter, Isabella, The Passion band, The Vertical Church Band, and it also provides an opportunity for moviegoers to pray with Miss Clara from the film "War Room."
The theatrical experience showcases a night of storytelling, worship, inspirational speakers and musical performances. A live question-and-answer session follows the film.
Following its debut last week, theaters nationwide hosted an encore presentation of "Revive Us" Monday night. And with high demand, theaters are adding another showing next week.
Cameron has billed "Revive Us" as a national family meeting happening in theaters all across the U.S., and called for the gathering because, he said, "America is in serious trouble."
"As I visit churches all across the country, moms tell me they're concerned about their children's future. Dads tell me they know something's broken and that the nation is on the wrong track. But they all ask what can we do?" Cameron said in a promotional video announcing the film's limited release.
In a post on his Facebook page earlier this month, Cameron wrote about his hope for America and Christianity.
"Do we have problems in America? Yes. And there has never been a more exciting time in America to be a Christian. When all hope seems lost, that's when God parts the waters! This could be our 'Red Sea' moment in our America story," he said.
During a tour stop earlier this year in Topeka, Kansas, the father of six urged Americans not to give in to secular culture, according to the Topeka Capital-Journal,
"People think we are in the last days of America," Cameron said. "Is it too late? No, it's not too late. It's not impossible to turn it around, but there's no time to wait any longer. We are nearing the point of no return, but we're not there yet. But we must lean in, double down and engage ASAP because we've been coasting for too long."
Even though the country is divided, he said there's one thing everyone can all agree on, "Nobody wants to fail at family."
The Los Angeles native has been married to his wife, Chelsea Noble, since 1991 when the couple met on the set of "Growing Pains." They couple shares six children, four of whom are adopted.
Cameron is also known for regularly teaming up with street evangelist Ray Comfort on "The Way of the Master" program that aims to evangelize atheists. Along with "Revive Us" he has also produced and starred in the films "Monumental" and "Unstoppable" that spread the message of faith.
