LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2013) - Today marks the unveiling of the new Believe.com, a faith-based lifestyle destination designed to serve the Christian community. Based on a recent poll of ChristianMingle® members, 86 percent said they could use additional support in their daily walk with God but an overwhelming number of them (74 percent) were not aware of any current digital destinations that offer practical advice or inspirational messages for Christians. To solve that problem, Believe.com provides fresh content from leading Christian sources to address the faith-based community's needs.

To enable people to forge a deeper relationship with God, their families and communities, Believe.com's features include:
To further interaction among the active online Christian community, Believe.com leverages social presences on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+. Believe.com also offers motivational resources designed to channel positive messaging to help guide members through their everyday life challenges, not just on Sunday, but Monday through Saturday as well, including an Inspirational Image of the Day, Testimonials and Bible Resources.
To celebrate its relaunch, Believe.com is declaring the month of October "National Pray It Forward" month to encourage Christians across the country to unite through prayer online, anytime, anywhere (Believe.com can be accessed easily with any mobile device). The movement is designed to showcase how Believe.com can be used to positively enhance and engage the Christian community. Based on the power of prayer and social media in today's fast-paced world, during the month of October, Believe.com is encouraging people to post prayers for other people or communities in need on Believe.com and through their personal social media accounts using the hashtag #prayitforward and messaging @Believe.
"With the experience of building an unprecedented audience on ChristianMingle, Spark Networks has become a recognized leader in the Christian marketplace," said Ted Gartner, Partner at Grace Hill Media, an advertising partner. "It's exciting to see the new Believe.com respond to the market demand for a modern, multi-platform Christian lifestyle site. Believe.com and the rest of the Gospel Media Group portfolio are a powerful platform for our advertising clients to reach the family-friendly audience.
