Charismatic Church Became A 508c1a Movement

Most Simple Way to Set Up a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Ministry – Charismatic Church Became A 508c1a Movement

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, then sets 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 also the ideal way to start a church.

Why do you want church status for your own ministry?

The worth of your church in contrast to any other nonprofit is better rights, and less restrictions.

First, churches do not file income tax returns. All other nonprofits do.

Second, churches don’t need 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 all other nonprofits don’t.

In case you’re wondering if your organization may 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 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 subsequently changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers guidance and counselling 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 kinds of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There is not any statute anywhere that states 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 a 508c1a.

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

The best way to form your church would be a 508c1a since it doesn’t wave rights and have speech restrictions, when compared with all other nonprofits.

We specialize in 508c1a registration and formation. Just as a lampstand holds a candle to be a light to everyone, a 508c1a holds your ministry to be a light to everyone in the world.
