300 Members Then Start A New Church

Fastest System to Build a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Ministry – 300 Members Then Start A New Church

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.

I would like to share with you briefly the value of forming your religious organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the best method to register a church.

Why do you need church status for your own ministry?

The value of your church compared to some other nonprofit is better rights, and fewer restrictions.

First, churches do not file income tax returns. The rest of the nonprofits do.

Second, churches don’t have to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they have to give testimony under oath, of such statements like all other nonprofits do.

Third, churches have particular audit protections, where each of other nonprofits don’t.

In case you were wondering if your organization can qualify, here’s a few examples of
IRS approved churches and church ministries:

The Salvation Army. Since 1958, classified as a church and association of churches, their primary income comes from thrift sales and donations.

Young Life, a non-denominational church that focuses on youth and meet at recreation places.

The Billy Graham evangelical Association, one of the most significant evangelism ministries in America approved for association of churches in 2016. After 66 years of operation as a nonprofit they had been audited by the IRS and subsequently changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that provides guidance and counselling on marriage,
parenting and other subjects through radio, books and social media.

The law firm, Liberty Counsel, an integrated auxiliary of Thomas Road Baptist Church.

Besides the different types of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There’s no statute anywhere that states a church must be a 501c3.

A church could be organized as a 501c3, a 501c4, a 501d, a for-profit corporation or a 508c1a.

How your church is organized is crucial to what it can and can’t do.

The best way to form your church would be a 508c1a because it does not wave rights and also have speech limitations, compared to all other nonprofits.

We specialize in 508c1a formation and registration. As a lampstand holds a candle to be a light to everyone, a 508c1a holds your ministry to be a light to everyone on earth.
