Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, then sets 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, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and the best way to register a church.

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

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

First, churches don’t file income tax returns. All other 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 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 principal income comes from thrift sales and donations.

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

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 provides advice and counselling on marriage,
parenting and other topics through radio, books and social media.

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

Apart from the various types of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There’s not any 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 company or even a 508c1a.

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

The best way to register your church would be a 508c1a since it does not wave rights and have speech restrictions, 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.
