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 home.

I want to share with you briefly the value of forming your religious organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and the best way to register a church.

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

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

First, churches don’t file income tax returns. The rest of the nonprofits do.

Second, churches don’t have to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must give testimony under oath, of these statements such as all other nonprofits do.

Third, churches have particular audit protections, where all other nonprofits do not.

In case you’re wondering if your organization may qualify, here’s 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 which focuses on youth and meet at recreation places.

The Billy Graham evangelical Association, among the largest 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 provides guidance and counseling on parenting, marriage 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 types of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There’s no statute anywhere that states 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 a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to start your church would be a 508c1a because it doesn’t wave rights and have speech restrictions, compared to 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 everyone on earth.
