Members of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star worship in a ‘Bethel’ (as opposed to what others called churches) as in Genesis 28:16-19 [KJV] [16] And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not. [17] And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. [18] And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it. [19] And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.

The true meaning of Church is ‘body of a person, which is where God dwells, and not a building or premises’. These Bethels have their own names depending on the location or the name of the area where it is built e.g., Elephant & Castle Bethel London, Manchester Bethel, Mill Hill Bethel London, or Soweto Bethel South Africa, and so on. Bethels of the BCS are opened 24hours a day, 7days a week, every year from January to December.
