Fastest Steps to Start a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Organization – 508c1a Charitable Organization Church Form

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

I would like to share with you briefly the worth of forming your Christian organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and the ideal method to form a church.

Why do you want church status for your own ministry?

The worth of your church compared to any other nonprofit is greater rights, and fewer restrictions.

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

Second, churches do not have to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must provide testimony under oath, of such statements such as all other nonprofits do.

Third, churches have special audit protections, where all other nonprofits don’t.

In case you’re wondering if your organization may qualify, here is a few examples of
IRS approved churches and church ministries:

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

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

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

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers guidance and counseling on parenting, marriage and other topics through radio, books and social media.

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

Besides the various kinds of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There’s not any 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 even a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to register your church would be a 508c1a since it doesn’t wave rights and also have speech limitations, when compared with all other nonprofits.

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