How To Start A Hospice Ministry

Most Simple Process to Form a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Ministry – How To Start A Hospice Ministry

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, and then sets it under a basket. Rather, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the home.

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

Why do you want church status for your own ministry?

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

First, churches do not file income tax returns. The rest of the nonprofits do.

Second, churches don’t need to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they have to provide testimony under oath, of these statements like all other nonprofits do.

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

In case you’re wondering if your organization may qualify, here’s 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 areas.

The Billy Graham evangelical Association, one of the largest evangelism ministries in America approved 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 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 various types 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 company or even a 508c1a.

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

The best way to start your church is a 508c1a since it doesn’t wave rights and also have speech restrictions, compared to all other nonprofits.

We specialize in 508c1a registration and formation. Just as a lampstand holds a candle to be a light to everyone, a 508c1a holds your ministry to be a light to everyone in the world.
