Our Founders

The Reverends Ethel and Harold Tunks

Founded in 1970.

The Cosmic Church of Truth AKA CCOT is a metaphysical, spiritual, interfaith church. It was founded on April 14, 1970, by both Reverends Harold and Ethel Tunks. It was chartered under the laws of Florida as an Interfaith church and educational institution for the purpose of preserving and disseminating metaphysical teaching. We hold weekly channeling sessions, psychic fairs (fayres), psychic development classes and more to help seekers open up to, and learn. We have a wonderful group of ministers, teachers, and consultants, each possessing specific gifts, knowledge, and teaching techniques, who present lectures, classes, and other activities at CCOT.

We believe in one God, the Creator, the Divine Source of life. We believe we are all on a continuing path of spiritual growth as we strive for perfection in this physical world. Regardless of what stage of development you are in, we feel there is much to be gained from fellowship with other spiritual seekers in the process of fulfilling their beingness with love, generosity, caring and light. We invite you to come and join us in unity of purpose; to learn, share, and fill your mind, heart, and spirit with the joyous vibrations of Peace, Love and Light, centered in Truth at The Cosmic Church of Truth.

Educational Institution

In the capacity of an educational institution, we consider many schools of thought and their unique contribution to man as a spiritual, mental, emotional and physical being. Such schools as Mysticism, Theosophy, Spiritual Occultism, Comparative Religions, Esotericism, Religious Sciences and many others have served in contributing greater understanding of man as a composite being. We equally embrace the Ancient Wisdom teachings and the Occult or 'hidden' teachings and God in our program of study. As an educational institution, our aim is in the unification of esoteric thought, religion and education.

Our Goal

  • Promoting the Brotherhood of man through sharing knowledge, wisdom and truth.

  • Promoting the plan of the Divine through mutual cooperation, services, fellowship and goodwill towards all mankind.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe in the Oneness and Totality of God. God is the essence of Life, has been the foundation of many religions.

  • Truth is a word that possesses the wisdom of the ages. As all religions have evolved, the goodness or Godness has been the basic ingredient from which spirituality has arisen.

  • We are not the sole possessor of the truth, but recognize that each world religion teaches different aspects of the same truths. We, therefore, embrace the Ancient Wisdom teachings that have permeated the doctrines and philosophies of world religions.

  • In recognizing that all faiths possess truth, we do not limit our expressions of worship or beliefs. We embrace Buddhism, Christianity, and other religions, knowing that in so doing, we expand our consciousness and insight into Truth. Each religion is as a pearl on a string, and the string becomes the cord of Life or Truth which bridges all mankind.

  • We believe in the dissemination of knowledge, wisdom and truth as taught by the Master Teachers throughout the ages. "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
    ** St. John CH. 8 v 32.

  • We believe that all religions serve a specific purpose in the spiritual evolution of man, and that each man will partake of different nourishment according to his needs. It is not our place to say which nourishment or which religion one should belong, but instead encourage each man in the pursuit of truth until he finds it.
