Easiest Method to Build a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Church – Doing Business At The Church 508c1a Charity

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 religious organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and the best way to form a church.

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

The value of your church compared to some other nonprofit is better rights, and fewer restrictions.

First, churches do not file income tax returns. All other nonprofits do.

Second, churches do not need to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they have to give testimony under oath, of such statements like all other 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 a few examples of
IRS approved churches and church ministries:

The Salvation Army. Since 1958, classified as a church and association of churches, their principal income comes from thrift sales and donations.

Young Life, a non-denominational church which 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 had been audited by the IRS and subsequently changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that provides guidance and counseling 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 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 crucial to what it can and can’t do.

The best way to form your church is a 508c1a because it doesn’t wave rights and have speech restrictions, compared to all other nonprofits.
