Easiest Way to Set Up a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Church – Adventist Church 508c1a Church

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 want to share with you briefly the value of forming your religious organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and the ideal way to form a church.

Why do you need church status for your own ministry?

The worth of your church in contrast to some other nonprofit is greater rights, and fewer constraints.

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

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

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

In case you’re wondering if your organization may 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 principal 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 accepted 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 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.

Apart from the various types of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There is 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 company or even a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to form your church is a 508c1a because it doesn’t wave rights and have speech limitations, compared to 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 everyone on earth.
