Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, then sets 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 value of forming your religious organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the ideal way to register a church.

Why do you want church status for your own ministry?

The worth of your church compared to any other nonprofit is greater rights, and fewer constraints.

First, churches don’t file income tax returns. All other nonprofits do.

Second, churches do not need to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must give testimony under oath, of these statements like the rest of the nonprofits do.

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

In case you’re wondering if your organization can 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 primary income comes from thrift sales and contributions.

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

The Billy Graham evangelical Association, among the most significant evangelism ministries in America approved 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 provides advice and counseling 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’s not any statute anywhere that states a church must be a 501c3.

A church could be organized as a 501c3, a 501c4, a 501d, a for-profit corporation 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 would be a 508c1a since it doesn’t 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 everybody on earth.
