God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness portrays in a gritty and realistic manner the struggles between today’s society and the church. Pastor David Hill (David A.R. White) has been at St. James church since he was a kid; in fact, his dad pastored the church. Now, he is confronted by Hadleigh University and even his friend, Thomas Ellsworth (Ted McGinley), who represents the college. Ellsworth and the college want to enforce an eminent domain policy and seize the land the church is built on in order to build on to their college. Pastor Dave isn’t ready to leave, and so—the fight is on!

Pastor Dave calls on his attorney, brother Pearce (John Corbett), to fight the college on his behalf. One underlying problem is that Pearce has strayed from his early Christian faith and wonders if the college shouldn’t be built in place of the church. But he stands with his brother and brings a lawsuit against the college. The plot thickens as a young man who had a bad experience with a church when his mother went through a divorce throws a brick through the church window at night. But when it strikes the gas knob, a gas leak ensues. A tragedy follows when Pastor Dave’s co-pastor, Jude (Benjamin A. Onyango), turns on an electric light which ignites an explosion. Pastor Jude is killed.
