Becoming A Knight / Dame of the Order
All KTI Associates in good standing are entitled to apply to be considered for full Chivalric Knight Templar status after six months’ probationary membership. Being a genuine Chivalric Knight in a modern world is no easy task and should not be entered into lightly.
You are required to strive at all times to follow the Chivalric code of Honour, the code of the Christian Warrior Knight. We are not a re- enactment group, we are real with ‘boots on the ground’ so remember, to be a Sir Knight in the Templar Order you will have to affirm in Person, by Holy oath, at the Alter, to strive to maintain the code all the days of your life:
The Ten Pillars of the Code of Chivalry:
1. Believe in Christs teachings and apply them in daily life
2. Defend the traditions of the Christian religion and the principle of faith
3. Respect and defend the weak against abuses by the strong
4. Love the people and sovereignty of your country and others
5. Do not be a coward, face the enemy, and use direct force
6. Fight the enemies of good relentlessly and without mercy
7. Perform all secular duties under the higher Laws of God
8. Never lie nor breach your word, be reliable for friend or foe
9. Give generously and wholeheartedly, for meaningful impact
10. Always uphold right and good, against all evil and injustice
Going Forward into the Templar Chivalric Knighthood
There is no charge for applying for this as we view it as a Holy office, but applicants do of course need to pay for their own full set of approved, official Knightly regalia. This complete, top quality set is needed to equip a Sir Knight in the proper attire that befits his station and Holy office in life.
We have commissioned all the items specifically for this Order and only Official KTI regalia can be used by members at events and ceremonies. The cost of a full Knights Templar regalia package used to be so expensive, several thousand, as to inhibit most people from taking the step up to Templar Knight.
Therefore we supply all our Members at the subsidised price of £685 or $890 USD. This ‘vestment/uniform’ fee paid by all applicants includes the full regalia needed for the induction ceremony – Cape, Tunic, Sword, Gloves, Templar Jewel, Belt, Ring, Medal etc. Please note, the Sword can ONLY be presented at your initiation by the Grand Commander at the Holy Altar, but you have three years to attend an official initiation ceremony. Everything else is sent by surface mail on approval of your application and receipt of your payment.
Finally, we would once again ask you to think well upon this decision, Do you feel your life has led you to this point?, Have you a desire to fulfil your destiny and start your life afresh as a Godly and chivalric Knight of the Templar Order, (The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon) . Only a few people are touched by the divine and installed with a burning passion to defend faith, family and nation and led towards Joining the Order. If you are being called…do it and be all you are meant to be in this short and fleeting life. We look forward to welcoming you into the Knighthood. We pray that God will guide you.
Non Nobis Domine, Non Nobis, Sed Nomini Tuo Da Gloriam
