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 do you want church status for your ministry?
The worth of your church compared to some other nonprofit is better rights, and fewer constraints.
First, churches do not file income tax returns. The rest of the nonprofits do.
Second, churches don’t have to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must provide testimony under oath, of such statements like the rest of the nonprofits do.
Third, churches have special audit protections, where each of other nonprofits don’t.
In case you were wondering if your organization can qualify, here’s some 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 which focuses on youth and meet at recreation places.
The Billy Graham evangelical Association, among the largest evangelism ministries in America accepted for association of churches in 2016. After 66 years of operation as a nonprofit they had been audited by the IRS and then 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 types of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There’s no statute anywhere that says a church is required to 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 cannot do.
The ideal way to form your church is a 508c1a because it doesn’t wave rights and also have speech limitations, when compared with 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.
