Most Simple System to File For a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Outreach – Jesus Cluture Ministry

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, 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, some examples of IRS approved churches, and also the ideal way to form a church.

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

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

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

Second, churches don’t need to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must give testimony under oath, of such statements like 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 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 principal income comes from thrift sales and contributions.

Young Life, a non-denominational church that focuses on youth and meet at recreation areas.

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 were audited by the IRS and subsequently changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that provides guidance and counselling 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 various types of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There’s not any statute anywhere that says 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 best way to form your church would be a 508c1a since it does not 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 on earth.
