Fastest Way to Launch a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Ministry – Friends Of Historic Christ Church 508c1a Charity

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, then sets 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 Christian organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the ideal method to register a church.

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

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

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

Second, churches don’t have to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must provide testimony under oath, of such statements like 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 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 contributions.

Young Life, a non-denominational church which focuses on youth and meet at recreation places.

The Billy Graham evangelical Association, among the largest 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 then changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers 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.

Apart from the various kinds of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There is no statute anywhere that says a church is required to 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 form your church is a 508c1a because it doesn’t wave rights and also 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.
