Best Method to Establish a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Outreach – Atascocita Church 508c1a Religious Trust

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, then puts it under a basket. Instead, 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 the best method to register a church.

Why do you want church status for your own ministry?

The value of your church in contrast 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 do not need to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they have to provide testimony under oath, of these statements such as all other nonprofits do.

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

In case you’re wondering if your organization can qualify, here is 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 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 were audited by the IRS and subsequently changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers guidance 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 different kinds of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There’s not any statute anywhere that says a church must 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 best way to start your church would be a 508c1a because it does not wave rights and also have speech restrictions, 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 everyone on earth.
