Fastest Method to Form a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Church – My Church Is A 508c1a Charity And We Received A 1099 Form

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 home.

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 best method to form a church.

Why do you want church status for your ministry?

The value of your church compared to any other nonprofit is greater rights, and less restrictions.

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

Second, churches don’t need to supply records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they have to provide testimony under oath, of these statements like the rest of the nonprofits do.

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

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 donations.

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

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers 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 various types of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There is not any statute anywhere that states 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 even a 508c1a.

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

The best way to register your church is a 508c1a because it does not wave rights and have speech limitations, compared to all other nonprofits.

We specialize in 508c1a registration and formation. Just 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.
