OMS has replaced the membership cards with an official and notarized membership declaration/document, though the cards are still available (see below). The documents offer a better description of your legal rights and the various sacraments that may be utilized by members. The document is embossed with our seal, signed by the OMS Executive Director, signed and stamped by a notary public, and laminated. The official membership document, which has your identification photo, is all that is needed to verify your membership and legal rights. Cards can be accessed directly from ONAC Utah after you have received the notarized document from OMS, a picture of the OMS document must be uploaded onto the ONAC website, or emailed to them (DETAILS HERE), if requesting a card.
OMS supports organizations that stand to protect our rights and liberties, such as American Civil Liberties Union and consider them to be allies in the uphill battle of overcoming injustices, concerning civil rights and religious freedoms. OMS now offers ACLU memberships to members who register for the standard lifetime membership, or the one year membership, on, or after 9-11-2017. In your order notes type “ACLU Yes” to indicate that you do want an ACLU membership, or leave it empty to indicate that you do not want us to register you as an ACLU member. The only opportunity to receive the ACLU membership with your OMS membership, at no extra cost, is by typing “ACLU Yes” in the notes on the registration page. Requests for ACLU memberships after registering require an additional $40 contribution. A membership card issued by ACLU will be mailed to you. We recommend keeping your ACLU membership card with your OMS official membership document. OMS contributes a minimum of $20,000 to ACLU for every 1,000 members that we enroll with them.
Oblates (Oblati) are individuals normally living in general society, who, while not professed monks or nuns, have individually affiliated themselves with a religious organization of their choice. They make a formal promise to follow the ethics of their religious order in their private life as closely as their individual circumstances and prior commitments permit. In the later Middle Ages, oblatus, confrater, and donatus became interchangeable titles, given to any one who, for his or her generosity or special service to the religious organization, received the privilege of lay membership, with a share in the prayers and good works of the ministers. The generosity one provides to OMS in the form of monetary contributions, volunteer work or contributing one’s services and skills allows one to share in the prayers and good works of the OMS ministers.
OMS members shape their lives by living the wisdom of the Holy Spirit as provided by sacraments such as, but not limited to, the Holy Manna, the Tree of Knowledge, and the Tree of Life. Members agree that if they utilize the sacraments to attain states such as Theoria or Visio Beatifica then they will strive to align with the wisdom provided to them.
OMS provides online courses freely to registered members. The educational material and tests in these courses will give you a better understanding of these sacraments. The test questions emphasize the key points of the courses and your personal responses to the questions allow us to confirm your formal commitment as an OMS Member / Oblate.
WHY BEING A MEMBER OF OMS of ONAC WILL BENEFIT YOU
It Provides You A Means To Receive Your Constitutional and God Given Human Rights In
Attending and accessing Spiritually Empowering and Healing Ceremonies and Sacraments – especially NAC ceremonies and sacraments such as Peyote, Acacia, Cannabis, Ayahuasca, Psilocybe Mushrooms, Iboga, Huachuma, etc. that are otherwise illegal for Non-Members to partake and or be in possession of.
United States Constitutional Rights and Protections as the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights clearly states and as the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 outlines these rights and protections in detail, even if one is NOT of American Native Heritage. A person does not need to be Native American to register for membership. OMS is a Native American Church in the sense that we practice and build upon Indigenous traditions, and it is an authorized and registered branch of Oklevueha Native American Church.
OMS / ONAC Members may possess and utilize healing and empowering sacraments such as Cannabis, Peyote, San Pedro, Ayahuasca, Acacia, Psilocybe Mushrooms, Kambo, Iboga, etc.. In addition, members may produce sacraments for their own religious use but NOT for distributing to others.
It Provides Connections With –
Federally recognized Native American Churches that are legally authorized to practice Earth Based Indigenous American Native Spiritually Empowering and Healing Ceremonies on or off Indian Reservations and in the United States Navy.
OMS NAC Medicine People (Minister, Curandera, Clergy, Doctor, Elder, Mara’akame, Reverend, Roadman, Sacred Prayer Pipe Carrier, Water Pourer, Shaman, Counselor, etc.) that will assist you in enhancing your spiritual callings.
An “Oklevueha Native American Church of OMS Membership Card” serves to protect the religious freedom which Native Americans and in fact all Americans have to practice the traditional and biblical traditions of healing, Chirothesia, “Laying on of Hands” and other spirit and energy based practices common to Indigenous peoples since the dawn of human civilization. With this in mind, three United States Higher Courts’ unanimous decisions (the Federal 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, State of Utah Supreme Court and the United States Supreme Court) express very clearly and concisely that:
An “Oklevueha Native American Church Membership of OMS Card” serves to protect the possession and utilization of sacraments which the federal government and a majority of state governments still are unaware of the unique constitutional rights of the Oklevueha Native American Church. With this in mind, three United States Higher Courts’ unanimous decisions (the Federal 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, State of Utah Supreme Court and the United States Supreme Court) express very clearly and concisely that:
Any and all government agencies of the United States have no legal authority to influence any church with its ideology (by-laws) or limit the participation in a church’s religious practices based on race (American Native) or political affiliation (Federally Recognized Tribes);
Cannot deny access to American Native Indigenous Sacred Ceremonial Grounds and / or use of any and all plants, minerals, cactus, herbs, fungi, elements & combinations thereof, etc.
As an example and as a matter of law, the United States governments are to protect these constitutional rights. These unanimous rulings state very clearly that all members of ‘any’ federally recognized tribe and/or ‘members’ of a bona fide Native American Church have the constitutional rights and protection to worship with any and all earth-based Sacraments.
It is ONAC’s opinion that a membership contribution is a relatively insignificant sacrifice compared to what our church leaders have endured to enable you to benefit from their sacrifices to receive sacred sacraments, ceremonies that you need for your well-being. The benefit and magnitude of what being a member offers far outweighs the membership contribution.
