As adopted and adapted from the Constitution of the Eternal Sacred Order of the Cherubim and Seraphim


Membership in this Christian holy order is open to penitent sinners of all races, ages and gender that profess Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior and purpose to lead a new and holy life with strict adherence to the biblical dictates for Christian living.

Although there is no entrance fees for admission into this Christian holy order, members are required to tithe to the holy order. A monthly minimum of 10% of the local living wages is required from all members in tithe and offerings. The Poor, sick and disabled members may be recommended to the Baba Aladura for exemption from this monthly contribution in part or in whole for a specified period of time.

Tithes and offerings are used for house bills, worship articles and welfare of the order. The holy order has no paid priesthood. Members that are precluded from gainful employment by their devotion and dedication to the service of the holy order may be paid a stipend at the discretion of the Council of Elders of the house of prayer. The financial records and books of the holy order are open and available upon request to members.

         The members of the holy order as priests are required to wear their garments at all times for worship and may be called upon at any time to perform religious rites appropriate for their age and gender. Ordination and promotion are by the recommendation of the Elder in-charge and based upon performance and promotion of the activities of the holy order. The ordination ranks in the holy order are designed for specific roles and responsibilities   within the house of prayer for the perfecting of the saints and the edifying of the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:10-12). The holy order takes responsibility for the burial rites of its members that die in active service to the Almighty.


All anointed male members and the most senior anointed female member of the house of prayer seat on the Council of Elders. The Council of Elders nominates the Elder in-charge from amongst its members. The Elder in-charge appoints the Secretary and Treasurer but the appointments are subject to the approval of the Council of Elders.

The Elder in-charge has operational oversight of the house of prayer. He supervises the activities of the holy order in the house of prayer and ensures that the house of prayer complies with local rules and regulations. 

The Treasurer monitors all financial transactions and maintains a meticulous financial record for the house of prayer. She ensures that the cash and checks given to the house of prayer are properly recorded and deposited promptly into the approved bank account in the name of the house of prayer. She ensures prompt payment of all invoices and bills to maintain the credit worthiness of house of prayer. The treasurer has the sole custody of the cash and checkbook of the house of prayer but has no signature authority to the bank accounts of the house of prayer.

The Secretary keeps the house of prayer on track with the calendar of events of the holy order. He records the attendance of members at scheduled activities and takes minutes of meetings for the Council of Elders. He makes approved weekly announcement to the congregation and keeps the membership abreast of the financial strengths and liabilities of the house of prayer.
