Legal System to Create a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Ministry – 508c1a Charity Church Orgaization

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, then puts 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 religious organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and also the ideal way to register a church.

Why is it that you want church status for your ministry?

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

First, churches don’t file income tax returns. The rest of the nonprofits do.

Second, churches don’t need to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they have to give testimony under oath, of these statements such as the rest of the nonprofits do.

Third, churches have special audit protections, where all other nonprofits do not.

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 primary income comes from thrift sales and contributions.

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

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

Focus on The Family, a ministry that provides guidance and counseling on parenting, marriage 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 different ways to organize a church.
There is not any statute anywhere that says a church must be a 501c3.

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

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

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

We specialize in 508c1a registration and formation. Just 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.
