Legal Steps to File For a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Ministry – Charismatic Church 508c1a Foundation Number

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 would like to share with you briefly the value of forming your Christian organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the ideal way to start a church.

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

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

First, churches don’t file income tax returns. All other nonprofits do.

Second, churches don’t need to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must give testimony under oath, of such statements such as 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 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 contributions.

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 then changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that provides advice 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.

Besides the different types of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There’s no 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 start your church is a 508c1a because it doesn’t wave rights and also 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 everybody on earth.
