Signing up for ChristianMingle should only take a few minutes. Users can choose to connect via Facebook, or enter an email address to create an account. You will need to provide your name, gender, date of birth, and location.
At this point you can continue to answer multiple choice questions which enrich your profile, or skip straight to browsing other users. The profile section can be returned to and edited at any point. Questions to complete the profile include your denomination, lifestyle, education, employment, appearance, and more. Additionally, members are invited to share free-form answers about what they are looking for in a partner, hobbies, interests, and anything else they choose.
As with most dating sites, there isn’t much you can do with a free ChristianMingle account other than browse profiles. For full use of the site, it’s recommended to choose one of the premium membership options. The longer you sign up for, the better the deal.

In order to create the most compatible matches possible, ChristianMingle uses a variety of tools. Users can complete a personality test which is color-coded and quite accurate - producing quality matches, and many of them.
There’s also a “COMPASS” multiple choice test which will reveal deeper aspects of your personality. The more accurate your answers are and the more information you provide, the better chance you’ll have at meeting like minded people - be it for friends and company or for finding the one. Potential match suggestions will be sent daily via email and can be viewed on the site.
For those who prefer to search themselves, there is a huge range of search filters. Results can be narrowed down according to the percentage of compatibility, location, and who’s currently online. You can search by denomination, appearance, lifestyle, and worship habits. Users can also search with the LookBook, a feature displaying just one profile at a time - in great detail. This is a nice addition for those who find the multiple profile display overwhelming.
ChristianMingle is home to a host of features and communication tools, ready for you to get your hands on. For those who need a little help initiating a conversation, you have the option of sending a “Smile”, “Spark” or e-card to get someone’s attention. You can see who has viewed your profile and added you to their favorites. In order to get in touch with someone, however, you’ll need a paid membership.
With a paid membership you can send and receive messages, browse anonymously, keep your status hidden, and block your profile from appearing in certain searches.
There’s the Secret Admirer feature, where you can let a member know that you’re interested. You will see photos of other members and can select “yes,” “no” or “maybe.” If you select “yes,” the other member will be notified that you’re interested. “Maybe” gives you the ability to save the profile and return back later to decide.
There’s a unique “Readiness IQ” test, designed to help determine whether or not you are ready to date or start a new relationship. The results are totally private so you can learn more about yourself confidently.
The Community Section is a safe space where members can post messages and see what others are up to. Finally, there’s the Worship Center which takes you to Believe.com where you can read biblical passages and receive spiritual guidance.
Christian Mingle provides numerous safety tips and suggests things to look out for when communicating with other members. You can block and hide other members as you see fit. In the case of harassment, you can easily report members to the customer support staff.
