Simplest Method to Create a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Church – Is Your Church 508c1a Charitable Organization

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 house.

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

Why do you need church status for your own ministry?

The value of your church in contrast to any other nonprofit is better rights, and less restrictions.

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

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

Third, churches have special 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 principal income comes from thrift sales and contributions.

Young Life, a non-denominational church which 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 had been audited by the IRS and subsequently changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers advice and counselling 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 different types of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There’s not any 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 corporation or even a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to register your church is a 508c1a because it doesn’t wave rights and have speech limitations, 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.
