Easiest Steps to Set Up a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Organization – Church 508c1a Business Number

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 house.

I would like to share with you briefly the worth of forming your religious organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and the ideal method to start a church.

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

The value of your church in contrast to some other nonprofit is better rights, and fewer restrictions.

First, churches don’t file income tax returns. The rest of the nonprofits do.

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

Third, churches have special audit protections, where all other nonprofits don’t.

In case you’re wondering if your organization may qualify, here is a few 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 places.

The Billy Graham evangelical Association, one of the largest 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 advice 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 different kinds of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There is 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 company or a 508c1a.

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

The best way to form your church would be a 508c1a because it does not wave rights and have speech limitations, compared to all other nonprofits.

We specialize in 508c1a formation and registration. 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.
