c. Ceremonies

The Church of Scientology observes a number of religious ceremonies which are traditionally found in mainstream religions: naming ceremonies, Sunday services, weddings and funerals.

d. Organization

The Church of Scientology has the complex organization typical of modern civilization, based on a large number of organizations. Each religion borrows its form of organization from the era in which it arises. More recently, the Jehovah’s Witnesses borrowed organizational methods from the industrial era, while Scientology has adopted the organization style of the post-industrial era.

The purpose of the organization is to administer and reproduce the benefits of salvation. It is in the service of international expansion.

e. Pastoral Counseling

Scientology has a body of ordained ministers who celebrate ceremonies and practice auditing.
