The Liturgy or certain decisions of the Omniversal Church (Nu Unified Temples) are an exclusive agenda of these meetings. The priests are normally ordained by another three, though only a single validity is good enough. Various ranks are distinguished amongst where the Pharaoh is the head. The Patrons (Patriarchs and Matriarchs) are the heads and hearts of particular churches (Moorish Holy Temples) who in turn consists of regional and local churches (Holy Temples) under their periphery. They have complete authority over the priest and the metropolitans or villages of that particular church (Moorish Science Temple). The Reverends are the princes and princesses of the Omniversal Church (World Temple) and are appointed by the Pharaoh herself or himself. Generally they are the adept priests heading departments of important districts of sees (realms and dominions) of the Holy See Global District and as a group they advise the Pharaoh and are also eligible to elect and appoint the Pharaoh’s successor in case of his or her death or resignation. The Reverend is more of an honorific distinction and are an essential part of the noologocial structure of the Moorish Holy Temples and Omniversal Church (Moorish Science Temple). Missionaries of a church (Nu Unified Temple) are composed of several missionaries and has a Priest who is called a Missionary.

If you have race pride and love your race, join the Moorish Science Temple of America and become a part of this Divine Movement. Then you will have power to redeem your race because you will know who you are and your forefathers were. Because where there is unity, there is strength. "Together we stand, divided we fall." Come, good people, because I, the Prophet, sent to redeem this nation from mental slavery, which you have now, need every one of you who think your condition can be better. This is a field held open to strong men and women to uplift the nation and take your place in the affairs of men. If the Europeans and other nations are helping me, why not you? It is your problem. The Negro problem is being solved only as it can, and that is by the Moorish Divine Movement. If you have a nation you must have a free national name in order to be recognized by this nation as an American citizen. This is what was meant when it was said, "Seek ye first the kingdom of Heaven and all these things would be added unto you."
A group of people who share a common origin, tradition and language and are actually capable of forming or constituting a Nation-State.
1. Nationality determines your political status in this government.
2. Nationality ties you to your forefathers.
3. Nationality enables you to claim your birthrights.
4. Claiming your Nationality puts you in compliance with the Constitutional Standard of Law by Name.
5. When Moorish Americans claim their Nationality they are then able to practice the Divine Creed of their Forefathers which causes them to adhere to the five Divine Principles of Love Truth Peace Freedom and Justice and become law abiding Citizens of the said Government.
With us all members must proclaim their nationality and we are teaching our people their nationality and their Divine Creed that they may know that they are a part and parcel of this said government, and know that they are not NEGROES, COLORED FOLKS, BLACK PEOPLE, ETHIOPIANS, because these names were given to slaves by slave holders in 1779, and lasted until 1865 during the time of slavery, but this is a new era of time now, and all men now must proclaim their free national name to be recognized by the government in which they live and the nations of the earth, this is the reason why Allah the Great God of the universe ordained Noble Drew Ali, the Prophet to redeem his people from their sinful ways. The Moorish Americans are the Descendants of the ancient Moabites who inhabited the North Western and South Western shores of Africa.
