Simplest Way to Register a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Outreach – Cpr Training Startchurch

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, and then puts it under a basket. Rather, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the home.

I would like to share with you briefly the value of forming your religious organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and also the best method to register a church.

Why do you need church status for your own ministry?

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

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 provide testimony under oath, of these statements like the rest of the nonprofits do.

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

In case you’re wondering if your organization may qualify, here’s 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 donations.

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 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 provides advice 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 kinds of churches, there are various 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 even a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to register your church would be a 508c1a because 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 everyone in the world.
