Most Simple Steps to Set Up a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Ministry – How To Start Nonprofit Ministry Organization For A Trees

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, and then puts 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 Christian organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and also the ideal way to start a church.

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

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

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

Second, churches do not have to supply 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 don’t.

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 principal income comes from thrift sales and contributions.

Young Life, a non-denominational church that 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 subsequently changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers guidance 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 different types of churches, there are various ways to organize a church.
There’s not any statute anywhere that says a church is required to 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 ideal way to start your church would be a 508c1a since it does not wave rights and also have speech limitations, when compared with 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 everybody on earth.
