Easiest Way to Launch a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Church – Church School Under Seperate 508c1a Foundation

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, and then puts it under a basket. Instead, 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 Christian organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and the ideal way to register a church.

Why is it that you need church status for your ministry?

The worth of your church in contrast to any other nonprofit is greater rights, and fewer constraints.

First, churches do not file income tax returns. The rest of the nonprofits do.

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

Third, churches have particular audit protections, where all other nonprofits do not.

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 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 approved for association of churches in 2016. After 66 years of operation as a nonprofit they were audited by the IRS and then changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that provides guidance and counselling 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 different types of churches, there are different 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 even a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to form your church is a 508c1a since it doesn’t wave rights and also have speech restrictions, when compared with 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 in the world.
