We Had A Call To Start A Church

Easiest System to Form a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Organization – We Had A Call To Start A 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 Christian organization as a church, some examples of IRS approved churches, and the best method to register a church.

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

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

First, churches don’t file income tax returns. All other nonprofits do.

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

Third, churches have particular audit protections, where all 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 primary income comes from thrift sales and contributions.

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

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 then changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that provides advice 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 various ways to organize a church.
There is no 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 company or a 508c1a.

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

The ideal way to start your church would be a 508c1a because it does not wave rights and have speech restrictions, when compared with all other nonprofits.

We specialize in 508c1a formation and registration. 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.
