Cosmo Christers (Fifth Church of Christ Cosmonaut)

Colloquial for parishioners of the Fifth Church of Christ Cosmonaut.

Cosmo Christers assert that Christ Jesus was an extraterrestrial. Their entire theology and interpretation of the Christian scriptures reflects this tenet. Unlike many sects, Cosmo Christers do not actively seek converts.

The Fifth Church of Christ Cosmonaut, like most Christian followings, prophesies a Second Coming and Judgement Day. However, it is expected that these visitations will originate from space rather than a spiritual dimension.

The Cosmo Christers as individuals are invariably efficient, conscientious, and reliable. (This uniformity is undoubtedly a result of their restricted recruiting practices.) Unsurprisingly, a large number of the church's followers are involved in the space program.
