Fastest Way to Create a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Organization – How To Start Nonprofit Ministry Organization In Cleveland Ohio

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

Why do you need church status for your ministry?

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

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

Second, churches do not have to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they have to provide testimony under oath, of such statements such as the rest of the nonprofits do.

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

In case you were 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 contributions.

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

The Billy Graham evangelical Association, one of the most significant 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 provides 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.

Besides the different kinds of churches, there are different 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 corporation or even a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to form your church is a 508c1a because it doesn’t wave rights and also have speech restrictions, when compared with 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 in the world.
