Our HistoryBrotherhood of the Cross and Star (BCS) was founded by Leader Olumba Olumba Obu, The Sole Spiritual Head of the Universe. In 1956, the first bethel (place of worship) was established in a rented thatched apartment at No. 8 Eton Street, Calabar part of the former Eastern Region, now Cross River State, Nigeria. Brotherhood of the Cross and Star grew rapidly and this growth is attributed to the teachings of love demonstrated by the founder of BCS, Leader Olumba Olumba Obu.
Our DoctrinesIn the Lord’s Prayer, our Lord Jesus Christ prayed thus “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven” (Matthew 6:9-13). In another instance, He stated emphatically that, as He is leaving He shall send the Holy Spirit that will guide man into the accurate knowledge of Truth. We believe that “Christ” having conquered death (2nd Timothy 1:10) in fulfillment of His mission on Earth and being one with God (John 10:30) have returned with a different mandate and a new Name in fulfilment of His promise to man (Matthew 24:35, Matthew 25:31-33, Revelation 3:12).
SacramentsBrotherhood of the Cross and Star observes four sacraments and these are Child Blessing, Marriage Blessing, Baptism and Love Feast.
