MYSTICAL BROTHERHOOD PRACTICES

PRACTICES

Baptism.  Only those who repent of their sins, turn to Jesus Christ and pledge total loyalty to Him for life are baptized in the Mystical Brotherhood.  Baptism is given only to believers who show lives changed by the power of God that they may be spiritually raised to a new life with Christ.

Observance of the Lord’s Supper.  Those who wish to break bread together and to share the same cup must be united in faith and Christian baptism before partaking of the Holy Supper.  They must live the way of true Mystical brotherhood.  Holy Communion is to be observed frequently and in spiritual unity, love and joy.

Holiness.  Mystical Brotherhood members commit themselves to a life of godliness guided and directed by the Holy Ghost.  We strive to live a holy life which is separated from the sins of the surrounding society (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

The Mystical Brotherhood believes in living the gospel message, not just talking about it.  If we confess Jesus Christ with only our lips and not with our actions, then we are hypocrites and will not see the kingdom of God.

“And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine” (Leviticus 20:26).

Personal Sacrifice.  Mystical Brotherhood members strive to acquire pure hearts and the fruits of the Holy Ghost through daily personal struggle.  We commit ourselves to a life of prayer, self-sacrifice and helping others, putting God first in our lives.

“So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:33).

Love of Others.  To heal the sick, console the afflicted, feed the hungry, visit the elderly, help widows and orphans, befriend the outcast, and shelter the homeless: this is true religion (James 1:27) and love of neighbor.

“By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another” (John 13:35).

Witnesses for Christ.  Inspired by our love for God, Mystical Brotherhood members are led by the Spirit to a bold witness for the Gospel and a burning zeal to win souls for Jesus Christ.

“As the father hath sent me, even so send I you” (John 20:21).
