Easiest Way to Launch a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Organization – How To Start A Christian Singles Ministry

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, then puts 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 religious organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the best method to register a church.

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

The worth of your church in contrast to some other nonprofit is better rights, and less 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 the rest of the 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 is some 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 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 had been audited by the IRS and then changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that provides advice and counselling on marriage,
parenting 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 types of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There is not any statute anywhere that states a church is required to 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 can’t do.

The ideal way to register your church is a 508c1a since it does not wave rights and also 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.
