PURPOSE OF SERVICE. TCC is a Christian religious organization and ministry serving a traditional Christian market, based on Biblical beliefs and teachings. It is designed for single men to connect with single women, and vice versa, for the purposes of exclusive romantic relationships, with the goal being marriage. As a matter of belief, doctrine, and religious practice, TCC reserves the term marriage for the covenant relationship between one man (husband) and one woman (wife) to the exclusion of all others, as ordained by God. It is the most intimate of human relationships, a gift from God, a sacred institution, holy, and central to the community of faith. This covenant relationship also represents the union between Christ and His Body (the church). Genesis 2:18-24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:7-8; Ephesians 5:22-33; Colossians 3:18-19; 1 Peter 3:1-7; Hebrews 13:4.

In furtherance of this purpose and to honor and promote our moral and religious beliefs, we donate a portion of our business proceeds to organizations that promote strong traditional marriages, such as Focus on the Family.

While TCC is designed for Christian single men to connect with single women, and vice versa, anyone who is presently single (i.e. not legally married) from any background is permitted to join. However, given our purpose, as stated above, and the fact that our membership is comprised of traditional Christian singles, anyone outside of this market will find it difficult to connect with anyone suitable for them on the service.
