The Church of Azazel proto-congregation is focused on a specific polytheistic Satanist paradigm developed by Diane Vera, who is also the author of a well-known website on theistic Satanism and founder of the NYC Satanists/LHP discussion group, a.k.a. NYC Satanists, Luciferians, Dark Pagans, and LHP Occultists.

Those for whom the Church of Azazel is intended are only a small minority among Satanists, especially here in NYC. (On the other hand, the NYC Satanists/LHP discussion group welcomes Satanists, Luciferians, etc. of many different kinds, both theistic and atheistic, on an equal basis, excluding only those who practice or advocate violent criminal activity in the name of Satan or Satanism.)

The Church of Azazel proto-congregation is intended primarily for those polytheistic Satanists who: (1) strongly oppose the religious right wing and have a strong desire to do something about it, on some level (e.g. political, artistic, literary, counter-evangelistic, or whatever), in at least some small way, and/or (2) have a strong desire to defend, or better yet to advance, at least one of the more desirable aspects of the modern world that are seen as "Satanic" by the more authoritarian, fundamentalist, and traditionalist sectors of the major religions. The Church of Azazel will not be, itself, an activist group, but aims to develop forms of spirituality that can strengthen people who, in one way or another, desire to promote societal progress.

For a brief introduction to the aims of the Church of Azazel proto-congregation, please see our "About" page.

Prospective members of the Church of Azazel proto-congregration are asked to get to know us by attending meetings of the NYC Satanists/LHP discussion group and/or meetings of at least one of the larger independent local groups devoted to one of the five Rising Gods (Lilith, Prometheus, Ishtar, Pan, and Lucifer-of-Sophia), as well as open meetings of the Church of Azazel proto-congregation itself and/or at least one of the Church of Azazel's Cabals. Meetings of all these groups will be announced in "Upcoming events" emails from the Church of Azazel proto-congregation. Once you join this Meetup group, please make sure you are subscribed to "Organizer broadcasts."

Please study the Church of Azazel website before you begin attending meetings of the Church of Azazel proto-congregation or its Cabals.

Prospective members are also encouraged to participate on our Meetup message board, again after first spending some time studying the Church of Azazel website.

If you're interested in joining us, it would be nice if you could also fill out your profile here on this group's Meetup site, as a further way of introducing yourself to us. You don't need to use your legal name or use a real picture of yourself, but please do tell us a little about your perspective on Satanism, your religious background, and your worldview in general.

    "I think this is absolutely beautiful, and mentions everything I hold dear as a polyamorous, pansexual, gender non-conforming activist! This has only made me love Lilith more."
