"When Corbin Bernsen approached us with the idea of using ChristianMingle's name and likeness for the movie, we were honored and thrilled to allow him to do so," James Green, general manager for ChristianMingle.com told said.

"It has been a fun and exciting process to see the Christian Mingle movie come to fruition, and we hope the film has a profound impact by highlighting the importance of accepting Christ and even inspiring singles to find God's match for them," Green added.

The romantic comedy is directed by Corbin Bernsen, and will star Jonathan Patrick Moore and Lacy Chabert, who is best known for her role as Gretchen Wieners in the hit film "Mean Girls" and Claudia in "Party of Five."

Chabert plays Gwyneth, a 30-something non-Christian woman who seeks a mate on the Christian dating site.

"She thinks the only thing missing is a man. In a moment of inspired desperation, she fills out a profile on the dating website ChristianMingle.com hoping to find Mr. Right. However, Gwyneth's attempts at impressing her dream guy end in disaster when he calls her out on her 'faux faith,'" reads the film's website.

"In an honest realization, she sees her superficial life for what it really is, and she's driven to create a personal relationship with God. In the end, He delivers on the true desires of her heart: 'life-changing' love."

The movie has been made by Home Theater Films in partnership with ChristianMingle.com but Bernsen was emphasized Facebook page that it is not an ad or paid promotional piece for the dating website.

"One of my first jobs is to let everyone know that this is a pure, straight up romantic comedy," he said.

"They have been incredible partners and friends in allowing us to use their name and play an integral role in the film, but one of the first rumours I want you to help me dispel is that this is a commercial for them."

According to its website, ChristianMingle.com is "the fastest growing online community for Christian singles."

"By utilizing many interactive features, including email, chat rooms, message boards, instant messenger and more, ChristianMingle enhances relationship-building within the Christian singles community," noted the site.
