Easiest Way to Build a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Outreach – Iowa Church 508c1a Charity

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 value of forming your religious organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and the best way to start a church.

Why do you need church status for your ministry?

The worth of your church compared to any other nonprofit is better rights, and less restrictions.

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

Second, churches do not need to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must give testimony under oath, of such statements such as the rest of the 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 a few 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 which focuses on youth and meet at recreation places.

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 had been audited by the IRS and then changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers advice and counseling on parenting, marriage and other topics through radio, books and social media.

The law firm, Liberty Counsel, an integrated auxiliary of Thomas Road Baptist Church.

Apart from the different kinds of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There’s no statute anywhere that says 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 can’t do.

The ideal way to start your church would be a 508c1a since it does not wave rights and have speech restrictions, when compared with all other nonprofits.

We specialize in 508c1a formation and registration. 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.
