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

I want to share with you briefly the value of forming your Christian organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and the best way to form a church.

Why do you need church status for your own ministry?

The value of your church compared to any other nonprofit is better rights, and less constraints.

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

Second, churches do not have to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they have to give testimony under oath, of such statements such as the rest of the nonprofits do.

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

In case you were wondering if your organization can 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 principal income comes from thrift sales and contributions.

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 accepted 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 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.

Apart from the different types of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There’s 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 a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to form your church is a 508c1a because it does not wave rights and have speech restrictions, compared to all other nonprofits.

We specialize in 508c1a registration and formation. Just as a lampstand holds a candle to be a light to everyone, a 508c1a holds your ministry to be a light to everyone on earth.
