True Love Waits

True Love Waits® is one of several approaches to challenging teenagers and college students to make a commitment to sexual abstinence until marriage. Created by LifeWay Christian Resources, True Love Waits is designed to encourage moral purity by adhering to biblical principles. This youth-based international campaign utilizes positive peer pressure by encouraging those who make a commitment to refrain from premarital sex to challenge their peers to do the same.

To date, over a million young people have signed covenant cards stating: “Believing that true love waits, I make a commitment to God, myself, my family, my future mate and future children, to be sexually abstinent from this day until I enter a biblical marriage relationship.”
