Brotherhood of the Cross and Star observes four sacraments and these are Child Blessing, Marriage Blessing, Baptism and Love Feast.
As the name implies, this is the spiritual blessing and anointing of a new born baby on the eighth day from the child’s birthdate (Luke 2:21). This is conducted by the Resident Priest. The order for child blessing is set down by the Holy Spirit as contain in the Brotherhood Handbook.
Marriage is a Holy and Divine institution that must be respected by the couple hence the need to bless the marriage (Ephesians 5:25, Colossians 3:18, and 1st Peter 5:7). In Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, the solemnization of marriage is the peak of the union because it is done by the Holy Spirit (1st Peter 3:8, 1st Corinthians 11:3, Ephesians 5:23). BCS believes that God is all and in all, therefore, anything done without God is bound to fail (Matthew 28:18, Proverbs 18:22). There is a publication titled “Key to successful marriage” by Leader Olumba Olumba Obu.
Baptism of the Holy Spirit is the way to salvation and into the Kingdom of God but before that, you must repent of your sins (Matthew 5:24, 1st Corinthians 5:7). You shall receive the Holy Spirit when you receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit (Mark 16:15-17). In Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, baptism is conducted immediately the convert is ready for baptism (Acts 8:36). Baptism in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is by immersion in the Name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19, Acts 8:26-40, John 3:5, and Ephesians 4:4-5). In BCS, you do not need to attend a special school before baptism because the Holy Spirit becomes your Teacher and Guide after baptism (Matthew 3:11, John 16:13-15).
In Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, love feast is a reminder of the wonderful acts of our Lord Jesus Christ. It commemorates “The Passover Meal” and the “Last Supper” of our Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 22:7, Matthew 26:17–30, Mark 14:12–26, Luke 22:7–39, 1st Corinthians 11:1 and John 13:1–17:26). In BCS, the feast consists of fresh fruits, water, rice and stew devoid of poultry, meat or fish. When you celebrate love feast with a pure heart and in harmony, you receive physical benefits, answer to problems and it accomplishes great spiritual tasks. It is food for the Body, the Soul and the Spirit. There are countless testimonies proving the efficacy of this sacrament.
The Supernatural Teacher, Leader Olumba Olumba Obu in His sermon titled “Veganism” described vegetarianism thus “living a righteous life that is devoid of any injurious food or drink”. This means that as you strive to live an upright life, it is expedient that you avoid food or drinks that could ruin your wellbeing (1st Corinthians 3:16-17, Daniel 1:8-15, Isaiah 65:25, Hosea 2:18, Luke 12:6, Matthew 5:7). Therefore, a true vegetarian must live an upright life in conjunction with the consumption of healthy foods which are devoid of animal meat, fish, processed or canned drinks. Vegetarian foods include vegetables, vegetarian chunks, fruits and natural homemade fruit drinks.
