Easiest Steps to Register a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Ministry – How To Find A Non-508c1a Nonprofit 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 Christian organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the best way to start a church.

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

The value of your church in contrast to some other nonprofit is better rights, and less constraints.

First, churches do not file income tax returns. All other nonprofits do.

Second, churches don’t have to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they have to give testimony under oath, of these statements like the rest of the nonprofits do.

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

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 which 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 then changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers guidance 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.

Besides the different types of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There’s not any 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 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 restrictions, 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 everybody in the world.
