Easiest Steps to Register a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Outreach – Have A Church Charter And Need The Form For 508c1a Church

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 house.

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 ministry?

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

First, churches don’t file income tax returns. The rest of the nonprofits do.

Second, churches do not have 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 each of other nonprofits do not.

In case you’re wondering if your organization can qualify, here’s 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 places.

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 subsequently changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that provides guidance and counselling on parenting, marriage and other topics through radio, books and social media.

The law firm, Liberty Counsel, an integrated auxiliary of Thomas Road Baptist Church.

Besides the different types of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There is no statute anywhere that states 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 can’t 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 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.
