Members of the Neo-American Church agree with the following principles:
- The psychedelic substances, such as cannabis and LSD, are religious sacraments since their ingestion encourages Enlightenment, which is the recognition that life is a dream and the externality of relations an illusion (solipsistic nihilism).
- The use of the psychedelic sacraments is a basic human right and all interference therewith is an assault on this right.
- We do not encourage the ingestion of the greater sacraments such as LSD and mescaline by those who are unprepared and we define preparedness as familiarity with the lesser sacraments such as cannabis and nitrous oxide and with solipsist-nihilist epistemological reasoning based on such models as David Hume, Sextus Empiricus and Nagarjuna.

Note to new members
You are now in a position to contact other members as a presumably like-minded person, but remember that you are not a customer and the OKNeoAC is not a business. Nor is this a club. It’s a religious allegiance association. We expect loyalty. Membership in any other religious organization, including the Masonic Order, Alcoholics Anonymous, and the Church of Universal Life means automatic excommunication. We expect some kind of donation, however modest, twice a year. (Yes, it’s the thought that counts.) We also expect members to observe protocol in communications with clergy and with other members. The Chief Bee Hee is addressed as Your Highness or Ma'am, higher clergy have forms of address peculiar to their offices, and boo hoos are addressed as "Mother". We regard the observance of these conventions by non-members as a polite gesture and nothing more.
Organization and style
Membership in the Neo-American Church, its affiliates, and local bags (congregations) is based on assent to the three principles. The religious affairs of the mother church are in the hands of the Chief Bee Hee, but affiliates and local congregations are institutionally autonomous, make their own rules, and hold title to their own property. The only power held by the head of the Church over local congregations is control of the right to use the name “Neo-American Church”. The status of a church as a NeoAC affiliate or bag is conditional on continued adherence to the three principles of the NeoAC.
The NeoAC takes a light approach to institutional forms and avoids “churchianity”. It is important not to confuse the religion (doctrine and practices) with the organizational vehicle for the defense and representation of the religion (the church). Our light institutional style reminds us not to take our church, as opposed to our religion, too seriously, but we do not regard our religion, our church, or ourselves as a joke.
