Easiest Way to Create a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Church – Church Getting Own 508c1a Movement

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, and 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 worth of forming your religious organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the best method to form a church.

Why is it that 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 don’t file income tax returns. The rest of the nonprofits do.

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

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

In case you were wondering if your organization can 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 primary income comes from thrift sales and contributions.

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

The Billy Graham evangelical Association, among 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 provides guidance 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 different kinds of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There’s no 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 even a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to form your church is a 508c1a because it does not wave rights and have speech restrictions, when compared with 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 everyone on earth.
