508c1a Movement For Bible Church

Easiest Process to File As a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Organization – 508c1a Movement For Bible Church

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

Why do you want church status for your ministry?

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

First, churches don’t 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 these statements like the rest of the nonprofits do.

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

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, 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 were audited by the IRS and then changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers guidance 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.

Apart from the various kinds of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There is no statute anywhere that states 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 would be a 508c1a since it does not wave rights and have speech limitations, when compared with all other nonprofits.

We specialize in 508c1a formation and registration. 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.
