Fastest System to Form a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Ministry – Church Of Jesus Christ 508c1a Business
Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, then puts it under a basket. Instead, 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 Christian organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and the best method to register a church.
Why do you need church status for your ministry?
The worth of your church compared to any other nonprofit is better rights, and fewer restrictions.
First, churches don’t file income tax returns. All other nonprofits do.
Second, churches don’t have to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they have to provide testimony under oath, of such statements like all other nonprofits do.
Third, churches have particular audit protections, where each of other nonprofits do not.
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 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, one of the most significant 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 subsequently changed the organization to church status.
Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers guidance and counseling on parenting, marriage and other subjects through radio, books and social media.
The law firm, Liberty Counsel, an integrated auxiliary of Thomas Road Baptist Church.
Besides the various 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 corporation 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 since it doesn’t wave rights and also have speech limitations, compared to all other nonprofits.
We specialize in 508c1a registration and formation. 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.
