The principal domicile and place of ministry shall be on the soil of Oregon, a foreign and non-domestic jurisdiction re the corporate Federal United States, (the "U.S." or "United States"), until so changed by the Board, as the Board may do upon occasion, with such branch offices and places of business as said Board may establish. As a world-wide ministry, the functions and holdings of the Heart Community may be international.
Venue and Jurisdiction

Venue and jurisdiction is in the Ecclesiastical Courts of Heart Community and/or the Ayam Foundation, and all hearings, proceedings, and trials must be recorded in the records of the Ecclesiastical Court of Heart Community and/or the Ayam Foundation.

The eternal Covenant of the Undersigned with the Creator remains paramount in all matters. As it is written: "... we ought to obey God rather than man", Acts 5:29; and "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.", Matt. 6:24.
Define process of enforcement: decentralized.
What is the court of Heart Community and how are decisions made. All court matters that are needing arbitration goes to the community for voting.
With the intent of living in peace with all people and living beings in the Kingdom of God, each Director is established as an Ecclesiastical Emissary with neutral, in itinere, non-engaged, status, and is not involved in any manner with any disputes, conflicts, wars, and declarations of war powers involving any other parties.
The above-referenced peaceful, non-resident, in itinere status of the undersigned Director, and all Advisors and Members of Heart Community and the Ayam Foundation, signifying permanent Citizenship in the Kingdom of God, is openly proclaimed before all people by use of the depiction of a scallop shell, such as the following representation:
By the authority of the eternal Covenant between each peculiar member of Heart Community and the uncreated, eternal Source of each, all members possess such absolute rights and powers as authority for:
- Terminating all involvement with, use of, and presumption of obligation for using, other documents and instruments, and all numbers and contractual relationships connected therewith, issued by any other parties, such as by an organization, agency, government, entity, corporation sole, corporation aggregate, and the like, upon signing, sealing, and notarizing any commitment executed in writing with Heart Community, such as this instrument.
- Using freely, and without interference or sanction from any source, any and all natural substances as sacraments, for healing and other purposes.
In addition, all Directors of Heart Community possess authority for:
- Issuing for all Members of Heart Community any and all permits, licenses, certificates of membership, authority, identification, and travel documents of any kind whatsoever.
- Creating, preserving, maintaining inviolable, and providing full and unalloyed protection and immunity of every kind whatsoever for all who seek spiritual sanctuary within, and abide on the soil of, any land, buildings, and dwellings of Heart Community, under the exclusive venue and jurisdiction of the Ecclesiastical Law of Heart Community and the Ayam Foundation. Said protection and immunity secures inviolate all rights regarding privacy, security, and safety of the person, possessions, papers, and effects of guests and all household dwellers against intrusion of any kind from any source.
Authority and Capacity
Authority for establishing Heart Community derives exclusively from the absolute, inherent, unalienable right of the Undersigned Directors, and of each peculiar Member of the un-incorporated spiritual society, Heart Community, in and through the Life, Being, Conscience, and Consciousness of the Undersigned and each Member of Heart Community, for recognizing and proclaiming the existence of the eternal Covenant with the immortal, uncreated Source of Life of the Undersigned and of each Member of Heart Community, concerning which Covenant all Members of Heart Community owe unalienable allegiance and are bound by conviction, creed, and commitment. No Member of Heart Community may under any circumstances, nor for any reason, abrogate the terms of said binding, absolute, inviolable Covenant. Neither do any other parties, beings, entities, governments, corporations sole, corporations aggregate, nor any legal persons of any kind whatsoever, possess ethical and lawful authority for interfering in the relationship between any Member of Heart Community and God Almighty that is signified by this Declaration, in accord with the prohibition against impairing the obligation of contracts. The Undersigned and each Member of Heart Community recognize that every man and woman is a spiritually autonomous unit of free will, sovereignty, self-responsibility, and self-government, and in such capacity may live in accordance with any covenant that such autonomous beings proclaim as established with any party, being, entity, government, legal person, and the like. The sovereign authority and capacity of the Undersigned and each Member of Heart Community for affirming the existence and establishment of this Self-Supported Ministry is eternally in full force and effect, i.e., nunc pro tunc, "before the foundation of the world." Said Covenant is inviolate and must not be abrogated in any manner by anyone, such as on the basis of unilateral action, presumption, consensus, decree, and the like, any more than the eternal and immutable laws of existence can be invalidated by man. As it is written: "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Exodus 20:3.
Non-Liability of Members of the Board
The Members of the Board may not under any circumstances be held liable for liabilities of this Ministry. All people and persons dealing with this Ministry may address only funds and assets of Heart Community for the payment of any claim, debt, judgment, obligation, as well as of any "money," that may become due and payable in any way regarding Heart Community. All actions, claims, and suits MUST be adjudicated in the Tribunals of Heart Community and/or the Ayam Foundation as set forth in this Declaration.
All hereditaments and possessions of Heart Community are the property of God Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, and are held in trust and stewardship by the Director for the perpetual use, purpose, benefit, behest, and behoof of the peculiar Membership of this un-incorporated Spiritual Society, Heart Community. If at some particular time there are no peculiar Members of Heart Community holding the Office of Director, all assets are re- vested with the un-incorporated Spiritual Society, Heart Community, and the Ayam Foundation.
The Board may set aside any net, non-taxable increase accruing in favor of this Ministry in amounts that the Board, in the Board's sole discretion, deems appropriate for retaining reserves and additional assets of this Ministry. Since this Ministry is a world-wide in scope, the Board may set aside such funds for providing spiritual and humanitarian benefit as the Board may decide.
Execution of Contracts
The Directors possess exclusive authority for executing all documents and instruments, such as contracts, conveyances, deeds, quitclaims, assignments, assignment of any part of the title on assets and property of this Ministry.
By execution of this indenture the undersigned Executive and Managing Directors, and every Successor in Office by the same Title, do hereby create and establish a body politic and a Self-Supported Ministry, with continuous perpetual succession.
In accordance with the disciplines of this un-incorporated Spiritual Society, Heart Community, any vacancy occurring in the incumbency of Heart Community must be filled through an appointment by majority vote of the remaining Advisors of Heart Community, or the Ayam Foundation Directors. Every Successive Holder of Office allows for perpetuity of the office of Director of Heart Community.
Acting as Guarantor
The Board may upon occasion pledge the assets of the Ministry as Guarantor for any person, company, and other legal entity, provided the Ministry receives reasonable compensation for such action.
Notice of Limited Liability
Notice is hereby given that all people, persons, and entities who extend this Ministry credit, contracting with Heart Community, as well as having claims against this Ministry, may regard only the property and other assets of this Ministry for payment and for settlement of any claims, debts, judgment (decree), award, and other obligation that may become payable thereunder. The Directors and Advisors are not personally liable when dealing with any business matters of this Ministry.
Heart Community, the un-incorporated Spiritual Society, establishes for this Ministry a Covenant of Silence. This Covenant of Silence is between the Holder of Office and the peculiar Members dealing in any secular and spiritual relationship, document, and matter involved in the relationship between the parties, which is considered private and consecrated. The Directors and all Advisors affirm acceptance of the Covenant of Silence until death.
Heart Community Ministry and its members establish a Covenant of Transparency regarding matters that could, if otherwise hidden and unspoken, be of detriment to the purpose of this ministry and its Members. This covenant supersedes the Covenant of Silence.
Upon the termination of this Ministry for any cause, the Board of Advisors may liquidate the estate of the Ministry, if deemed preferable, by disposing of its properties and assets for such amounts and upon such terms as the Board deems prudent. After discharging all proper lawful obligations of this Ministry, the Board shall distribute in favor of other Spiritual Ministries-with goals compatible with the principles and purposes of Heart Community-the proceeds and remaining assets in any currency the Board deems appropriate. For these purposes, the Advisors shall continue acting until such duties have been fully performed, whereupon this Ministry shall be finally closed.
Interpretation, Disputes and Claims
- Regarding any question concerning interpretation and construction of this indenture and Declaration of Spiritual Ministry, including all supporting documents, the Board retains exclusive authority for construing this instrument in accordance with its good-faith construction. Said construction, as stated in the Minutes, shall be final, conclusive, and binding on this Ministry, as well as all other people, persons, and entities dealing herewith.
- Neither this indenture nor its supporting documents may in any manner be deemed as constituting any kind of PUBLIC corporation, profitable business, partnership, statutory trust, association, estate, company, public entity, nor any kind of statutory entity. This Charter is intended as being an indenture creating a PRIVATE Spiritual Ministry. All interpretations shall be under the Laws of God as interpreted and adjudicated by the Tribunals of Heart Community. For Guidance, all concerned parties, including arbitration tribunals and courts, may consult appropriate court rulings concerning integrated auxiliaries of a Spiritual / Church Ministry of this type.
If any provision of this Declaration of Spiritual Ministry is deemed invalid by competent authority for any reason under particular circumstances, the remaining provisions shall nevertheless stand and remain in full force and effect.
