* The Church of the Holy Maiden in ''LaPucelle''; although the game actually questions the notion of faith in gods at some points (and even [[spoiler: their goddess, Poitreene, herself claims not to be perfect at one point]] ) the Church is still largely a force for good that cares for the people. On the other hand their rivals, The Church of the Holy Mother, turns out to be a [[spoiler: ReligionOfEvil in disguise]] but [[VillainWithGoodPublicity has more worshipers]].

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has the Temples of the Eight ([[DeityOfHumanOrigin later Nine]]) Divines, dedicated to the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedric deities]] who sacrificed large portions of their divine power in order to [[CreationMyth create Mundus]], the mortal plane. They are seen as [[GodIsGood uniformly benevolent]] so far throughout the series and contrast the various Daedric Cults, which are typically viewed as a ReligionOfEvil. (Though the Daedra themselves operate on a very BlueAndOrangeMorality.)

Worship of the Divines has been the official religion of the various Daedric Cults, [[TheEmpire Cyrodiilic Empires]] of Tamriel since the foundation of the first (where it was adopted as part of the BargainWithHeaven struck with the Aedra which are allowed the First Empire to form). Their benevolence is in sharp contrast to the [[ReligionOfEvil typically viewed as a ReligionOfEvil.

* The Way of the Prophets in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''. Granted, for most of the series its leader is SinisterMinister Kai Winn, but it's made clear that she doesn't really have that much influence on what the church itself believes, and her subordinates continue to be {{Good Shepherd}}s.

* The Light of Kiltia in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII''. Benevolent, politically-neutral (their priests are forbidden to engage in matters of the state), and deeply protective of refugees and pilgrims. It is implied, however, that in the [[TheVerse mythology it shares]] with ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' and ''VagrantStory'' its diminished political power allowed the [[CorruptChurch Church of Glabados]] and the [[{{Cult}} Müllenkamp cult]] to appear from within its ranks.
