Christian dating and friendship service

However, who other than our Creator knows best how we can flourish and fully achieve our purpose?

The Bible teaches us that God wants the best for us: "For I know the plans I have for you — declares the LORD.

As a Christian dating site we believe that marriage is a sacred covenant between man and woman, ordained by God as part of His divine plan for each of us. God says in Genesis : "It isn't good for man to be alone; I will make a companion for him, a helper suited to his needs." God himself brings people together according to his timetable.

Sometimes it feels like his plans are limiting us, and sometimes it's not easy to wait for God's timing.

Some singles don’t bother to look for a spouse, believing God will bring the person to them, while others are forever on a search for one, fearing they may miss him or her.

There should be a balance, as we remember that God is perfectly loving (Ephesians ; 1 John -18) and perfectly sovereign over every situation, desire, and need (Psalm 1; Romans -39).

As in all decisions, we should ask God to direct us clearly.

It can be difficult to meet single Christian men and women, especially if most of our friends have already married.

Many Christians are hesitant to write a personals ad, since they want to wait for God's guidance. After all, choosing your spouse is a choice for life. The monks used to say "ora et labora" — pray and work.

We strongly believe dating sites are being used by God to bring Christian singles together.

Jesus spoke about marriage in Mark 10:9: "Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate." It shows how much God values marriage.

Sadly, it also shows our brokenness, when we review the divorce rate, even among Christians.

In fact, it doesn’t even tell us how to “date” or “court,” or whatever term we use for the process we use to get to know a potential mate.
