Scientology Symbol
 Scientology A true Religion

The Sea Organization, so named after the original crew which manned the ships commanded by its founder in the early days, has five principal locations in the world which carry out various functions—although there exist groups of missionaries and members in many of the countries where Scientology is present. Those five headquarters are situated in East Grinstead (United Kingdom), Copenhagen, Los Angeles, Clearwater, Florida and Sydney. In those five headquarters, more than anywhere else, one can feel the real spirit of a community dedicated to its evangelizing and pastoral work. Although there is no obligation of celibacy for the ministers of Scientology, these communities resemble in their functioning and dedication those of many other religions, including the Catholic Church. Members of the Sea Organization do follow a very strict code of ethics which includes very ethical and monogamous sexual relationships, complete abstinence from any use of drugs and complete devotion of one’s life to achieving the goals of the religion.

Of course, the training of ministers of the highest levels, auditing to the highest level of Operating Thetan, ministry of the highest levels of organization and the responsibility for the level of ethics of Scientology at an international level rest only in the hands of members of the religious order called the Sea Organization, who are dedicated exclusively to this work.
