Easiest Way to Launch a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Outreach – 508c1a Faith Based Organization Church Not Allowed To Preach

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

I want to share with you briefly the value of forming your Christian organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and the best way to form a church.

Why is it that you need church status for your own ministry?

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

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

Second, churches do not have to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must provide testimony under oath, of these statements like the rest of the nonprofits do.

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

In case you were wondering if your organization can qualify, here’s some 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 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 advice and counseling 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 kinds of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There is no statute anywhere that says a church is required to 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 vital to what it can and can’t do.

The ideal way to register your church is a 508c1a since it doesn’t wave rights and 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 everybody in the world.
