The Cult of Sigmar is a very powerful religious and political organization within The Empire that leads the Sigmar Worshippers within the land, and also pushes for its growth amongst foreign nations. The Cult of Sigmar is led by the Grand Theogronist of whom is widely regarded Sigmar's representative on earth, and as a consequence holds great religious and political influence within The Empire. Together with his two Arch Lectors, the Grand Theogonist commands three votes on the Council of Electors making him an extremely powerful member of the goverment of The Empire.

The Cult of Sigmar was established within The Empire in the years following Sigmar's abdication and disappearance as a means to first find him. The cult quickly grew into a fully-fledged religion, venerating Sigmar as the founder of The Empire and their role diminished in the attempts to find Sigmar and they moved towards venerating him as a god. Becoming known as the Sigmarite Church, the cult was officially organised in IC 73 by the first Grand Theogonist Johann Helsturm and under the Emperor at that time they were given a vote on the Elector Council, and two other votes in subsequent years as well.
