British actor David Oyelowo has revealed how his Christian faith has become the bedrock of his life.

Oyelowo, famous for his portrayal of Martin Luther King Jr in the Hollywood hit, ‘Selma’, said: “I have consistently had experiences and encounters in my life that have continued to build my faith.

“But those haven’t just been good things. Over the last three years I have lost both of my parents, and those tend to be experiences that test your faith.

“I’ve found that they have brought me closer to the Lord, and revealed how much I have built my life on the rock that is Jesus Christ.”
