Church of Illumination

Closely associated with the Fraternitas Rosae Crucis, which is a very elite and exclusive fraternity, the Church of Illumination operates as an outer court that interacts with the general public. The church's program centers upon the establishment of the Manistic Age, during which the equality of male and female will be fully recognized. During this age a new world teacher will arise who will teach the five fundamentals: As ye sow so shall ye reap; talents as gifts and responsibilities; the golden rule; honesty; and the new birth as the awakening of the Christos, or divine spark, within. The church's headquarters are located at Beverly Hall, PO Box 220, Quakertown, PA 18951.
