Yes. The Theological Heretics Institute for the Nurture of Knowledge, Enlightenment, Reconciliation and Salvation is registered in the State of Texas in the same manner as any other recognized church. Our ministers have the same legal privileges as other churches.
The only creed we strictly adhere to is that no creed (including ours) is above examination. Other tenets we take as rules of thumb rather than dogma include:
Wisdom is always good even if it comes from someone who is not.
Freedom of Religion can only exist if Church and State are Separate.
Heresy is the basis for all theological progress.
If you mean do we sleep with crystals under the pillow and such, then no. It is in no way a cult in the sense that we would seek to control our members or separate them from their current faith. In a way it could be called New Age because it is one of many new efforts to leave the Dark Ages approach to religion based solely on authority without discounting the value of a spiritual life and a worldview less constrained by one closed system of reason or another.
If you have to ask, then we probably would not agree on what you mean by “believe in God” and you would come away with the idea that, no, we don’t, but in general, yes we do. Hope that helps.
