Fastest Process to Launch a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Church – Legal Seminar 508c1a Business Church

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

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

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

First, churches do not file income tax returns. The rest of the nonprofits do.

Second, churches do not have to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must give testimony under oath, of these statements like the rest of the nonprofits do.

Third, churches have particular audit protections, where all other nonprofits don’t.

In case you were 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, one of the most significant 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.

Besides the different kinds of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There’s not any 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 a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to register your church would be a 508c1a because it does not wave rights and have speech limitations, 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 everybody in the world.
