Acquiring a membership in the First Satanic Church is not a simple task. We do not solicit memberships or accept just anyone. We are the eclectic elite of the Satanic religion and you cannot buy your way in. To ensure the highest stratum of membership, we find it necessary to screen all applicants. Only those who are sincerely interested in the Satanic philosophy and the occult sciences need apply. Our members are from various backgrounds and walks of life. Many of them share the desire to better themselves through the application of Satanic principles. They are all drawn to the philosophy and feel that it describes how they have always felt but perhaps could not express.  The Nine Satanic Statements ring true to them. Before you apply for membership it is mandatory that you read The Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey.

Members of the First Satanic Church DO NOT hurt or sacrifice animals, worship the devil, participate in orgies or sexual perversion as Satanic ritual, harm or molest children or infringe on the rights of or steal from others! We are a law and order organization of individuals who openly study Satanism and other cultural subjects.

To request an application for membership send a self addressed stamped envelope. It is not necessary and we request that you DO NOT send this via registered or certified mail. Please enclose a note with your name, address, age, telephone number, e-mail address and any additional info about yourself to:

The First Satanic Church was formed on October 31, 1999 by High Priestess Karla LaVey, Anton LaVey’s daughter and founding member of the Church of Satan which was originally named the first Satanic Church prior to 1966.  There was a split in the church after the death of her father in 1997.  We were established due to the lack of a Satanic presence and are dedicated to the study of Satanism and the occult sciences.

Our activities and memberships are mostly done offline, the reason for this is simply that we are not an online organization, and doing things in the real world has proven to be a more effective way of weeding out lunatics, and posers hiding behind computers. If you would like to be involved with the First Satanic Church visit our membership page for more information.

Keep in mind that you do not have to join anything to be a “real” Satanist. Many true Satanists are not joiners.  Do not let any institution or group convince you that you must be a “member” in order to be a Satanist. To be a “real” Satanist you must first be true to yourself and adhere to the basic tenets of the philosophy.
