Supporting Our Ministry

Over the years we have been involved in the Charitable Contributions debate.

As a church, we have made the conscious decision not to file for IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.

This decision is based on the fact that churches are tax-exempt just by their existence and protected by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.

Churches (including integrated auxiliaries and conventions or associations of churches) that meet the requirements of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code are automatically considered tax-exempt and are not required to apply for and obtain recognition of exempt status from the IRS.

Donors are allowed to claim a charitable deduction for donations to a church that meets the section 501(c)(3) requirements even though the church has neither sought nor received IRS recognition that it is tax-exempt. In addition, because churches and certain other religious organizations are not required to file an annual return or notice with the IRS, they are not subject to automatic revocation of exemption for failure to file.

How is the Church of Faith Ministry Supported?

As a not-for-profit ministry, the Church of Faith relies on the generous support of our members and those whose lives we have affected. 

As we continue on with the rebuilding of our new website we will add a donation page for those desiring to support our work here at the Church of Faith.
