Best Christian Dating Apps for Canada and the US

You’re seeking a fellow Christian single and want to know what the best Christian dating apps are. We’ve got you covered. Instead of the usual list of “Christian” dating apps you’ll find listed on other review websites (sorry but Match, eHarmony, Tinder, Bumble, Hinge and Zoosk are not Christian dating apps), this list includes only apps that are Christian-specific. That means the singles on these apps share your Christian faith and profile questions cater to the Christian faith.

Considering that different dating apps work for different people (and, yes, some find no success with any of them), we can’t say for sure what the absolute “best” Christian dating app is for you, but we hope to help you narrow down your list of dating apps to try.


To be part of our short list, the app must be:

  • Christian-specific (created solely for Christians to match)
  • available for both iOS (Apple) and Android
  • legitimate (for example, not inundated with fake reviews in an attempt to get people to try them)

Apps could be stand-alone apps (and thus operate much like a typical dating app) or an app version of a dating site (and thus operate much like a typical dating site). A lot of times, stand-alone apps rely on swipe-matching (and communicating only with mutual matches), while dating site apps follow a more traditional approach of matching and communication (identical to the websites).

The best Christian dating apps

The best Christian dating apps, in our opinion, are listed below. While we provide a ranking, keep in mind that different apps work for different people. If you’re serious about finding a compatible Christian single, all of the apps listed below are worthy of at least creating a profile on (which you can do free of charge), and looking around to see if anyone interests you.

How did we come up with that ranking? We looked at the following criteria:

User rating

When looking at ratings, consider that these can be manipulated somewhat – and that people will poorly rate some of these apps simply because they are not free. That said, a consistently poorly rated app likely is something to take note of. One thing we suggest is to sort app ratings/comments by most recent. Read a few screens of the most recent reviews and you should be able to tell fairly quickly whether the reviews are fake or legitimate.

All that said, below are how the best Christian dating apps rank in terms of user ratings. Ratings shown summarize ratings from the App Store (US & Canada) and Google Play.

Number of reviews and installs

Looking at the number of reviews and installs isn’t perfect in terms of determining app activity, but it can provide some insight on how busy they are. The approximate number of reviews (iOS and Google Play) and installs (Google Play) are listed below.

App last updated

A good measure of how well a dating app functions, and how much the dating service is dedicated to it, can be determined by how often it’s updated. Granted our chart below picked a point in time, but it still sheds light on the quality of the app.
