As we Ethiopian descendants continue to struggle for Emancipation in the 21st
century and beyond, it is a blessing to be a part of such a noble endeavor! The
Rastafarian World-Wide Community is in desperate need of a place to call their
own. For too long Rastafarians have been trodden through Babylon. It is full time
that Rastafarians build a foundation upon which to place all sacrifice and efforts
of those who began the journey before us. The above message is simple, yet
The Church Of Haile Selassie I was formed in the year 1987 by Brother Ammanuel
Foxe. A Rastafarian activist and also the international President of the Imperial
Ethiopian World Federation (I.E.W.F.) Inc. The theological base of the Church of
Haile Selassie I is founded upon the Temple worship through Liturgical Chants
and rituals dated back to the days of Moses in the wilderness. This is known as
Rastalogy, “Black Theology”, based upon the Divinity of Emperor Haile Selassie I
of Ethiopia, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Elect of Yahweh Elohim
Sabboath, 225th rebirth of King Solomon of Jerusalem.
The early emergence of Rastafarianism was unable to establish a documented
way of worship, because the lack of academic education and material resources;
which do not give the grassroots people the opportunity. The opening of England
for cheap labor, gave members of the Rastafarian Community the opportunity to
migrate, where these brethren exploited the educational facilities in Europe for
the interest of the socio-political and religious development of the Rastafarian
Community in Jamaica; so that today, sixty years after the emergence of
Rastafarians in Jamaica, the community has finally established a documented way
This establishment came at a time when young Rastafarians and their families
needed a documented way of worship which would legitimize their faith and
religious practices, giving their offspring and aged, security and a religious status,
both in the workplace, in the community, and at school. The continuity of the
religious faith of the Rastafarians could not survive the 21st Century without a
centralized way of worship, the Crowning Glory of the Faith of Rastafarians.
Haile Selassie I worshipped as God amongst man on Earth, incense burned in his
name; and people blessed and baptized in the Name of Haile Selassie I, could only
be fulfilled with the coming of the Church of Haile Selassie I Temple Worship.
The establishment of the Church of Haile Selassie I and temple worship will
ensure that in the year 2001 and beyond, the Name Haile Selassie I will be praised
and proclaimed in a manner compatible to that of Jesus The Christ, Lord Buddha,
Lord Rama and Lord Krishna.
We connect people from all walks of life to a tradition and a lineage that has
served humanity for more than 5,000 years. The church of Haile Selassie I is
committed to providing sincere believers with inclusive, practical and spiritual
teachings that will ensure growth and development in order to address whatever
