Legal Way to Launch a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Outreach – How To Find A Non-508c1a Foundation Church Tennessee

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 want to share with you briefly the value of forming your religious organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the best way to register a church.

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

The worth of your church in contrast to some other nonprofit is greater rights, and fewer restrictions.

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

Second, churches do not have to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must provide testimony under oath, of these statements such as all other nonprofits do.

Third, churches have particular audit protections, where all other nonprofits do not.

In case you’re wondering if your organization may 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 donations.

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

The Billy Graham evangelical Association, one of 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 provides advice 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 different types of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There is not any 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 even a 508c1a.

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

The best way to form your church would be a 508c1a because it doesn’t 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 everybody on earth.
