Most Simple System to Start a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Outreach – How To Enter Church Pledges In Quickbooks Nonprofit

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 house.

I would like to share with you briefly the worth of forming your Christian organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the ideal method to start a church.

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

The value of your church in contrast to any other nonprofit is greater rights, and fewer constraints.

First, churches don’t file income tax returns. All other nonprofits do.

Second, churches don’t need to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must give testimony under oath, of these statements such as all other nonprofits do.

Third, churches have special audit protections, where all other nonprofits don’t.

In case you were 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 principal income comes from thrift sales and donations.

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 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 offers guidance and counselling 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 various types of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There’s no statute anywhere that states a church must be a 501c3.

A church could be organized as a 501c3, a 501c4, a 501d, a for-profit corporation or even a 508c1a.

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

The best way to start your church would be a 508c1a since it doesn’t 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 in the world.
