How To Transition From A 508c1a Church To A Free Church

Fastest System to Create a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Organization – How To Transition From A 508c1a Church To A Free Church

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 worth of forming your Christian organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the best method to register a church.

Why do you want church status for your ministry?

The worth of your church in contrast to some other nonprofit is greater 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 must provide 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 were wondering if your organization can 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 most significant evangelism ministries in America accepted for association of churches in 2016. After 66 years of operation as a nonprofit they had been 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 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 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 crucial to what it can and cannot do.

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