Is it possible that YOU could still be single because you unknowingly commit one of the 7 Deadly Relationship Sins?

SHOCK NEWS: The truth is that hundreds of currently single Christians could meet and marry each other if they were not committing some of the Seven Deadly Relationship Sins!

We do CHRISTIAN DATING differently to online sites. Here's how.

Genuine Members

Genuine Members

We only accept genuine Christians as members so if that’s what you’re looking for you’ll be in the right company with us.

Off line

Our service is off-line

Our membership and introduction ‘Christian Dating’ service is provided entirely off line. You can call it old fashioned or you can sigh with relief that you’ve found a truly personal, interactive and effective way of meeting other single Christians.

Commitment

Commitment

Both yours, other members and ours. You won’t find ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ members on our books. Just real genuine Christians who are truly committed to finding new friends and the right partner.

Expert support

Expert support

“It ain’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it, and that’s what gets results.”  We don’t solely introduce Christians to each other – we provide tools, education, coaching and support to make sure you’re doing the right things in the right way. That’s what gets results! Check out our RESOURCES tab – many of them are FREE and available for everyone.

Our Latest Testimonial

“Merion and I would like to say a big thank you to Friends First, in particular, Katharine who was very encouraging to myself when I was ready to give up. Katharine said to me, “You only need one”  Well I found him and we both feel truly blessed.  We serve an amazing God and he proves over and over that he is in control of our lives and everything happens when the time is right. God has our lives mapped out but organisations like yours help us to meet up. Many thanks and may God continue to bless the work that you do. We would like to encourage other people who find themselves in the same position as us to keep on writing and contacting other members – you will find the right person and for us, it was when we were least expecting it.
