     ~The ultimate nature of reality can and should be understood by the mind of man~

       The first mission of the Church of Icha is that of understanding the inner workings of existence, both the physical

 and the supernatural.

   To this end, exploration and research in both Science and the Occult is encouraged.

   There should be no forbidden knowledge.

       The second mission of the Church of  Icha is to lead men and women of good will towards freedom,

 benevolence and self-actualization, both physically and spiritually.

   We seek to teach the ignorant, counsel the troubled and free the oppressed.

   Our position on Sexuality:

   The Church of Icha does not discriminate on the basis of sexuality and does not condemn those with alternative

 sexual preferences unless the expression of those proclivities result in true harm to oneself or another.

   We do not have celibate clergy.

   Our position on other faiths:

   We support interest in other faiths as long as they are benevolent.

   You may be a member of our church as well as any other that you find spiritually fulfilling.

   We also welcome agnostics, who are philosophical kindred spirits with us.

 Our position on tax exempt status:

   We do not support tax exempt status for churches and we have never sought to obtain it for ourselves.

   We feel that allowing the government the power to decide what is and what is not a religion is both

 unconstitutional and dangerous.

   Tax exempt status is not required in order to operate a church.

   Donations to our church are not tax deductible.
