Church of The Eternal Source

A Federation of Neo-Egyptian Reconstruction Temples 


The Church of the Eternal Source is the oldest nonprofit church in the world that is dedicated to the practice of the Ancient Egyptian Religion. The church was established in 1970 in California, and granted nonprofit status there in 1971. in 1989 one of the church founders, Rev. Harold Moss, moved to Idaho and established a CES temple in Boise. As of 2010 and the passing of Rev. Moss the the CES moved to Oregon under the leadership of Rev. Michael Poe. In 2016 the main temples moved to New Mexico and hope to establish the CES as a non profit church there in the coming months. We offer fellowship, counseling, celebration of public festivals and personal instruction to any interested party. In the future we are hoping to expand our membership and temples. If you are interested in becoming a member, initiate or priest/ess of the CES please see About CES for more details.

The CES follows the principles of Egyptian spirituality and religion including honoring all of the Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses and utilizing the Goddess Ma"at in finding a balance, harmony and order between ones self, the world and the afterlife. We reconstruct the Ancient Egyptian Religions as they were practiced by the Egyptian temples and through personal worship, in the context of the modern world, and incorporate these beliefs into our daily lives. Our knowledge is based on information gathered from studying scholarly sources in Egyptology, translations from ancient texts as well as personal revelation

The Church of the Eternal Source is alive and well (despite the occasional rumor to the contrary)!

Having lost our last founding member a few years ago, the CES went into a sort of hiatus to decide if we were going to continue the CES or perhaps go into a different direction and make some changes. We decided on the latter.

So we have been working on the following items.

1. CES California has been unincorporated but of course we will retain the priestesses in California.

2. We will be incorporating the CES in New Mexico where the two main temples are located. We will retain most of the articles of incorporation and bylaws with minor adjustments,.

3. We are revamping many parts of the CES website and moved it to Google host. 

4. We have a defined Membership program to be announced.

5. The CES started a members/priesthood only wordpress site.

6. For the first time we will be offering online classes as well as priesthood training (priesthood training for members only).

7. The CES magazine Khepera will start publishing again (for members only)

8. Members only CES publications including the Pagans Guide to the Pyramid Texts, the Pagans Guide to the Book of the Dead; the CES Egyptian Calendar, the Pagans Guide to the Book of Gates; Ancient Egyptian Philosophers and their texts and much more.

Stay tuned and check the NEW! for current updates
