Micro Church

Fastest System to Form a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Outreach – Micro Church

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 home.

I would like to share with you briefly the value of forming your Christian organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the best method to register a church.

Why do you need church status for your 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 don’t have to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they have to provide testimony under oath, of such statements like all other nonprofits do.

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

In case you’re wondering if your organization may 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 donations.

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 approved for association of churches in 2016. After 66 years of operation as a nonprofit they were audited by the IRS and then changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers advice and counseling on marriage,
parenting 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 various ways to organize a church.
There’s no 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 company or a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to form 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 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 in the world.
