Most Simple Process to Form a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Organization – Destiny 508 Vs Helping Hand Support Services
Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, then sets it under a basket. Instead, 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 worth of forming your religious organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and also the best way to start a church.
Why do you want church status for your ministry?
The worth of your church in contrast to some other nonprofit is better rights, and less restrictions.
First, churches do not file income tax returns. All other nonprofits do.
Second, churches don’t need to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must give testimony under oath, of such statements such as the rest of the nonprofits do.
Third, churches have special audit protections, where all 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 donations.
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 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 counselling on marriage,
parenting 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 kinds of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There is no 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 cannot do.
The ideal way to register your church is a 508c1a because it does not 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 everybody on earth.
