We believe in the words of Jesus as found in Matthew 6:1-4.
A Knight in the Holy Order will never reveal the name of the organization he represents as a whole to anyone we help unless specifically told to do so.
A Knight will never reveal the identity of any Brother as a member of the KSP. Even a seemingly innocent request can be deceiving ( Matthew 2: 7-8, 13-18)
Member information will never be disclosed to anyone other than among the members themselves. This is for security purposes. Requests for information shall be directed to the Holy Order of The Knights of St Paul world headquarters only.
All Brothers in this Holy Order are equal regardless of denominational background, race, color, social status, ethnicity, political affiliation, or any other manner. If a man is inducted into and consecrated by the Brotherhood of Knights after complete vetting process, he is considered worthy as an Ambassador of Christ, he is considered an upstanding and righteous man of God and he has every equal standing and position as every other Knight.
In each chapter, there shall be one Knight appointed by the world headquarters to officiate each meeting and event of the local chapter for the sake of good order. Respect shall be given to that man by the local chapter membership but the chairman of the local chapter shall not lord over the local body. The position is considered an honor, again for the sake of good order, but in no way reflects a higher position than even the newest member.
There are no 'degrees' of knighthood in The Holy Order of The Knights of St Paul. A man is either a full member or he is not. Once consecrated to service of God and man through the Order, there are no further titles, degrees or levels of membership except for the Executive Council, which conducts the business affairs of the Order, (as any Board of Directors would do for any corporate body). The 'Protectorate' of the Order is the Presiding Bishop/Knight. That is the only 'title' differing from the entire membership and that title is strictly for good order.
A Knight shall at all times offer refuge and protection from persecution of his Brother at no cost and in secrecy. This applies to any form of persecution as we believe is coming upon the Church and the faithful in these Last Days. This shall in no way apply to those who commit crimes and would attempt to use the charity of The Knights oath to evade law enforcement. This provision is intended to apply solely to religious persecution.
A safe haven shall be provided by the Knights at the request of the headquarters for the protection of an individual not affiliated with the KSP, from domestic abuse or fear of grave bodily harm. This aid shall be rendered in secrecy and directions provided are to be adhered to explicitly.
A Knight shall at all times examine Scripture, live by the example of St Paul, be steadfast and loyal to Christ and love his Brother as himself.
A Knight in this Order must care for his family and preside over his own household in a manner befittingThe Lord Jesus Christ, teach the Scriptures to his children in love and never exasperating but with the goal of raising godly children.
