Before you explore further, please read this History of Sam Fife’s Move Of God Cult.
Below is a compilation of photos, media and documents regarding the founders of The Move of God, also known as The Body and/or The Walk. This cult is still in existence as of 2019, with compounds around the globe and thriving businesses in Delta Junction, Alaska.
In this 2012 Newsletter from one of the compounds in Alaska, Whitestone, Sam Fife is referenced, showing the connection to his teachings still exist.
“I’ve seen a woman slap a five-month-old-baby for crying while lying on the floor during a service at 10 at night with people around it shouting and singing.” A child, Fife says, has “the same kind of nature the demons have. The demons can’t make him be any worse than he is” because he was “rebellious against God from the day he was born,” he says in a tape-recorded sermon.” Download
Sam Fife and his Elders followed a doctrine that revered blood sacrifice and was based in demonology. Sermons often lasted for hours. Below are just a few sermons which outline some of The Move’s abusive doctrines.
Melchizedek is a king and priest appearing in the Book of Genesis. The name means “King of Righteousness” – a name echoing kingly and priestly functions. He is the first individual to be given the title Kohen (priest) in the Hebrew Bible. Below is Fife’s interpretation of the Melchizedek Order. Download
“What I hope to uncover in this study, is the real purpose God demanded blood.” ~Sam FifeDownload
Sam Fife was deeply into demonology. He believed that children were born demonic. He believed exorcism was the cure to all things, including physical ailments. Below are some of his demonology beliefs.
Jane Miller was a woman Sam Fife performed an exorcism on. This tape was passed around to all of his cult compounds and was required listening for adults and children alike. Below is the full recording of the exorcism followed by Jane Miller’s unpublished autobiography which tells an alarming story.
“Legion: The Jane Story”
“My background was unusual, and ironic in view of what would happen in this case. To the patients, I was a doctor in a white coat, a shrink who knew about the mind. But I really was a clergyman, trained as a hospital chaplain, in an experimental psychiatric training program.”
David M. Reed, Ph.D, 7/14/1996

Sam Fife’s predescesor, Buddy Cobb, took over the cult in 1980 and was the go to person until his death. In 2017, Buddy Cobb was filmed by his granddaughter. She asked him more than once about the child abuse to which he stated that 1. nothing happens that is not the will of god and 2. children need to know evil to know good and to know what evil looks like.
Doug McClain, Sr., was responsible for brokering much of the land at the Alaska compounds. The deeds for the Delta Junction, Dry Creek compound originate in his name, as screen shot below. Whitestone Farms gives credit to him for helping acquire their compound land. McClain’s criminality has followed him. He put his son in a financier position, in a case detailed in the below documents wherein the McClains, along with other defendants, were selling shares to a medication made with goat’s blood; a medication that would apparently cure all diseases. In spite of the FDA’s refusal to approve the medication, Argyll Biotechnologies, LLC and Immunosyn Corp. continued to take in millions of dollars in investments resulting in prison time for some of the defendants. Not Doug McClain. He continually wiggles his way out of jail time in spite of his history of extorting money from vulnerable adults. Below are the court cases related to Doug McClain Sr.
