Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, and then sets 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 is it that you need church status for your ministry?

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

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

Second, churches do not need to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must provide testimony under oath, of these statements such as all other 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 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 donations.

Young Life, a non-denominational church that 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 then changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers guidance and counseling 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 various types of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There is no 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 corporation or even a 508c1a.

How your church is organized is crucial to what it can and can’t do.

The best way to form 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 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 on earth.
