-- What is an independent church?

Although The Church of St. Mary and St. John has valid lines of
Apolistic Succession, it does not stand under the canons and doctrine
of any other church. It has it's own set of canon laws and doctrine.

-- Why do we need another church?

There is currently no other church or religion that has the same open
and accepting stance. Since the destruction of matriarchy, patriarchy
has dominated every main stream religion, and even if some of the
churches are now accepting female Priests again, they are still
venerating only a masculine God and trinity.

-- What makes The Church of St. Mary and St. John unique?

The Church of St. Mary and St. John believes all religions have sprung
from the same roots and are all connected, most have been used to 
manipulate and control rather than enlighten. That most of the
people have been denied enlightenment, as the true teachings of
Mary Magdalene and John The Baptist have been suppressed.
The Church of St. Mary and St. John's Holy trinity is the Mother,
Father and Divine Child. 

We believe men and women are equal and both are entitled to become
Priests and spiritual teachers.

-- Where does Jesus fit into the Celtic and Gnostic tradition?

Jesus was of royal blood and a spiritual teacher along with his
wife Mary Magdalene.

-- Your teachings seem to be similar to those in the book and film
'The DaVinci Code' isn't that just fiction?

The book does contain some facts and some fiction. The only way it
would have been allowed to be released is as fiction. These ideas
are not new they have been passed down through the hidden church
for thousands of year.

Occult means hidden, Occult Mystery Schools that teach the Esoteric
truth are the hidden church.
