Legal Way to Create a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Church – Apostolic Doctrine Evangelistic Church Of Jesus Christ 508c1a FBO

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

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

Why do you need church status for your own ministry?

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

First, churches do not 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 provide testimony under oath, of such statements like the rest of the nonprofits do.

Third, churches have particular audit protections, where each of other nonprofits don’t.

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 donations.

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

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

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers advice and counseling on parenting, marriage 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 various ways to organize a church.
There is 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 corporation or even a 508c1a.

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

The best way to form your church would be a 508c1a since it doesn’t wave rights and also have speech limitations, compared to 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.
