Actor/director Mel Gibson has topped a poll naming the most powerful Christians in Hollywood.

The Passion of the Christ director, who last year vowed to stop drinking alcohol after he was caught driving under the influence in California, beat out competition from fellow Bible fan Denzel Washington.

At No. 3 in the list, compiled by Web site BeliefNet.com, is Everybody Loves Raymond star Patricia Heaton, while heavily religious stars like Mark Wahlberg and Jim Caviezel failed to make the top 10.

The Top 10 most powerful Christians in Hollywood are:

1. Mel Gibson

2. Denzel Washington

3. Patricia Heaton

4. Tyler Perry

5. Ralph Winter

6. Angela Bassett

7. Martin Sheen

8. Martha Williamson

9. Kristin Chenoweth

10. Philip Anschutz
