He's always come off as more conservative, and he's a born-again Christian.

He's not like his brothers he's a reborn. He was on Fox and Friends not too long ago. Totally different from them.

I recently saw Stephen Baldwin being interviewed on television. He is unabashedly honest about his faith
in Christ; doesn't surprise me that he is a conservative.

Steven Baldwin is a born-again Christian and a conservative, unlike his brothers who are leftists, looney and lost.

Stephen Baldwin's wife is a Bible Christian and he is a Bible Christian now too.

It's good to know that people like him can change - after all he starred in the movie Threesome in which he plays a dumb jock who becomes open to the concept of homosexuality.

That wasn't him. The guy who played animal was the big guy in 'My Bodyguard'. A film that most of you have never heard of I'm sure.

Adam Baldwin, no relation.

Good movie, actually. Very 70's, but good.

Adam Baldwin most recently was exceedingly eery in Angel, on TV.

He actually converted because his wife did recently. He saw how her life and attitude changed and he decided to do it. Smart move on his part. He is doing lots for charity right now and is becoming very respected.

Better hope this ain't an elaborate Baldwin brothers set-up.

No telling what could happen when he's on stage in front of millions.

Their own words.
There's a Christian rock festival called "Creation Festival".
It's held at Agape Farms in Mount Union PA every year.
Well, Stephen was up on the stage speaking to the crowd, and mentioned his brother Billy.
Said he led Billy to Christ, went on to say that they were both going to work on Alec.
Stephen was up on the stage, and ratted his brother out by telling the crowd he was milling about somewhere out there in the crowd.
(My father goes every year, my sister went this year. I stayed home and got to hear dad, who doesn't usually take note of Baldwins, speak about it. Then my sister spoke about it. There's gotta be others who were present AND are FReepers.)

Baldwin was at the Creation Festival in June and told this story.

What started it was their housekeeper. She's from South America somewhere and sang Christian songs as she cleaned. Stephen asked his wife what the housekeeper was singing and wife told him. Baldwin said to make her stop. The housekeeper said the house was clean, what difference does it make what she sings. Btw, do you know you're going to hell?

Mrs Baldwin was very upset and asked the housekeeper how she could say such a thing. The answer was, come to church with me tonight and find out.

Mrs Baldwin came home from church and told Stephen, did you know you're going to hell? Billy, um William, was next. :-)

Thanks for that update. That is encouraging news. All too often I see celebs get saved and then try to keep one foot in both worlds. I'm encouraged when I see one of them sell out for the Lord. Kirk Cameron comes to mind. What a treasure he's turned out to be for the Kingdom of God!

Yeah for Stephen Baldwin. I heard a couple of weeks ago he was a born again Christian. His life will be a lot more happy and complete than his angry brother, Alec.

From CBN.com (aka 700 Club):

GUEST BIO
Stephen Baldwin: Extreme Sports Evangelist



The 700 Club

June 30, 2004


The youngest of the Baldwin brothers talks about his testimony of faith and his extreme sports DVD, Living It.


CBN.com – Worldy Life vs. Christian Life
Stephen has been acting in films since the 1980s. He comes from a family of four actor brothers (his older brother is Alec Baldwin). While he was working on the TV show Young Riders (1989-1992), Stephen and his wife, Kennya, needed help around the house with their two daughters. They hired an older housekeeper from Brazil who was a Christian. Stephen says that her love for Jesus shined through her and impacted him greatly.

After the TV series ended, Stephen and his family moved to New York where Kennya started attending a Brazilian church. She became deeply involved in a Bible study and gave her life to the Lord. Kennya began intensely praying for her husband.

Stephen says he gave his life to the Lord at that time, but his interest in Christianity didn't become strong until after the terrorist attacks on September 11th. In March 2002, Stephen was baptized at church.

He realized that there was not a lot of Christian content in the secular marketplace and looked at starting a company that offered quality Christian media to young people. After attending a festival in Syracuse, New York, put on by the Luis Palau Evangelistic Association, Stephen, 37 at the time, was inspired. "I've been to MTV and all of that worldly stuff," he says. "It's death. It's meaningless. All of this is Christian - modern - edgy."

Extreme For Jesus

The term "extreme sports" was coined in 1995 during the Extreme Games (now the X Games) on ESPN. Since that time, many extreme athletes have adopted an alternative style, known as punk and later as grunge. In general, extreme sports contain an element of danger, epitomized by daredevil acrobatic stunts performed while traveling at high speed. Many of these sports are new versions of older sports. For example, BMX racing and mountain biking are both based on cycling; in-line skating is a form of roller skating. Extreme sports have become absorbed into the mainstream mainly because of the competitions.

Kevin Palau, son of evangelist Luis Palau, realized that extreme sports greatly influence the youth culture. For four decades, Luis Palau has reached thousands of young people for Christ using traditional evangelistic methods, but their methods are changing in order to reach more young people. The Luis Palau Evangelistic Association holds six music-evangelism festivals each year. They incorporate BMX riding and skateboarding demonstrations into the festivals and have catapulted the ministry into a fresh, edgy outreach to today's youth. At each festival, 10,000 square foot skate parks are built so that professional skaters and BMX riders can demonstrate their skills while sharing their testimonies.

Kevin and Stephen thought capturing this type of outreach on film was inevitable. They co-produced Livin It, a 40-minute documentary that includes extraordinary sports action and compelling face-to-face, street-style evangelism. Bonus material also includes testimonies from 11 top Christian BMX and skateboard athletes, a gospel message, outtakes, and footage from a festival from a recent spring break.

Stephen is a born-again Christian and very proud of it. Having heard him speak about first his wife's coming to Christ and then praying for him in front of him every day. He finally began to allow the Good News to work in him.

He even has his own Christian Ministry with Extreme Sports, namely skate boarders and speaks regularly at Christian Festivals for Luis Palau, evangalist out of Portland, OR.

In fact, many of the Christiann groups that perform at the Luis Palau Festivals, i.e. Jacki Valasquez, will also be performing at the G.O.P Convention.

I'm in the business and I know the Baldwins, some better than others. I hope that Stephen is sincere in his conversion but the stories of hookers for him and his crew persist. And, he has signed on to a Snoop Dogg movie where he plays a crooked cop to Snoop's g-sta hero.
