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 home.

I want to share with you briefly the worth of forming your religious organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and also the ideal method to register a church.

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

The worth of your church compared to any other nonprofit is better 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 provide testimony under oath, of these statements like all other nonprofits do.

Third, churches have special audit protections, where each of 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 places.

The Billy Graham evangelical Association, one of the most significant evangelism ministries in America accepted for association of churches in 2016. After 66 years of operation as a nonprofit they were audited by the IRS and then changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers guidance 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.

Besides the various kinds of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There’s 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 corporation or even a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to register your church would be a 508c1a since it does not wave rights and have speech restrictions, 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.
