How To Find A Non-508c1a Charitable Organization Church

Best Way to Launch a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Organization – How To Find A Non-508c1a Charitable Organization Church

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, and 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 value of forming your Christian organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and also the ideal way to register a church.

Why do you need church status for your own ministry?

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

First, churches do not 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 provide testimony under oath, of these 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’re 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 primary income comes from thrift sales and contributions.

Young Life, a non-denominational church that 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 subsequently changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers advice and counseling 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.

Apart from the different kinds of churches, there are various 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 crucial to what it can and cannot do.

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

We specialize in 508c1a formation and registration. 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.
