Silence, Secrets, Sects...Church of the Firstborn


Church of the First Born -Tulsa, Oklahoma

Today in Fort Smith is launching a new investigative series entitled Silence, Secrets, and Sects: The Seductive Power of Cults in America.


Our team is currently investigating the Church of the Firstborn, a fundamentalist faith healing sect.


The Church of the Firstborn is located primarily in Oklahoma and Colorado, but members can be found in Arkansas, Texas, Missouri, and South Carolina.


This sect is notorious for rejecting medical treatment for its members.


The lack of medical treatment, as you might imagine, has resulted in the death of hundreds upon hundreds of Firstborn members since its inception in the 1800’s.


The Church of the Firstborn doctrine teaches that Firstborn members are the only “chosen” people of God.


Church of the Firstborn doctrine nurtures manipulation, misinformation, and breeds immense fear of the world that is “outside” of the sect.


Using the King James version of the Bible, members are taught that they must adhere strictly (and solely) to the church doctrine in order to have a relationship with God.


This idea is reinforced to the membership through prophetic messages and the use of punishment.

Members live in fear of “breaking rules” or going against the doctrine of the Church because they know they could be severely punished.


The punishment used by the Church of the Firstborn is something known as ex-communication, shunning or “rejection.” A rejected or shunned member is forced to leave the sect and sever all ties with their family and friends that remain connected to the church.


Depending on the severity of the offense, a rejected member may never see their family again.


If you or someone you know has had experience with the Church of the Firstborn, please contact our investigative team by visiting facebook.com/silencesecretssects or email us at silencesecretssects@gmail.com.


All information will be kept confidential.

That all sounds bad but being raised in it, its just part of everyday life. It gets so much worse than that.

Is this no longer happening? I tried to send an email but it came back and I can't find the Facebook page. I'd really like to talk to whoever is leading this as I was raised in it. I am no longer in it.

Hi my name is Lexi. I was born and raised in this cult and I only left a few years ago. Adjusting to living in the "world" after the church is hard and there are very few people who understand what its like to live in that extreme way. There's a support group on instagram called firstbornsurvivors. This article does not lie but there is so much more I wish people knew about this cult. I hope more of us make it out.

Hello my name is BreAnna, and i was raised in this cult. We were located in Mattawa, Washington and have more brethern located around this area. The stories I can share with you will shock you. I had been shunned from my father at 15 with no where to go, my uncle who does not participate in this, but was raised in it had thankfully taken me in. Most of these statements are true, but I have many more facts for you. I want to expose them and am willing to discuss all information. I had believed for a while after i was shunned that god had given up on me because i did not want to be apart o…

These children will grow up with a phobia of going to a doctor if they aren't familiarized with regular checkups at a young age. This may keep them from seeing a doctor as an adult, which has led to premature death and suicide in some cases from those who couldn't endure the pain of their disease. CHILDREN HAVE DIED IN THIS RELIGION. WHY IS IT ALLOWED? THEY ARE JUST SCARED OF HELL AND THEY ARE SUPPORTING EACHOTHER BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY ARE GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE AND SEPARATING THEMSELVES FROM REALITY!
