Elohim City is a private community founded in November 1973 by Robert G. Millar (1925-2001), a former Mennonite and a United States resident alien from Canada. ‘Filled with the Holy Spirit,” according to one of his sons, Millar moved to Oklahoma City in the mid-1950’s, where he founded a church.
In 1973 Millar and approximately 18 family members established Elohim City or “City of God,” as a spiritual community to “honor God,” while waiting for Him to establish His kingdom on earth. This 400-acre religious enclave has it’s own liturgy, calendar (the year begins with the spring equinox) and it’s own clock (the day begins at noon). Worship services are an integral part of life at Elohim City. Services are held daily. On the Sabbath — which at Elohim City is on Tuesday — they last several hours.
Residents of Elohim City are adherents of Christian Identity, which teaches that white Anglo-Saxons, not Jews, are God’s chosen people and that America, not Israel, is the Promised Land. According to Identity, Jews are descendants of Satan, and nonwhites are pre-Adamic, a lower form of species than whites.
