Fastest Way to Form a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Outreach – How To Start Nonprofit Ministry Amazon
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 would like to share with you briefly the worth of forming your Christian organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and the ideal way to form a church.
Why do you want church status for your ministry?
The value of your church in contrast to any other nonprofit is better rights, and less constraints.
First, churches don’t 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 such statements such as 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 is 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 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 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.
Apart from the various kinds 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 company or a 508c1a.
How your church is organized is vital to what it can and cannot do.
The ideal way to start your church is a 508c1a since it does not wave rights and 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 everyone on earth.
