The Advantages of Joining the Missionary Church International
- Immediate Federal tax-exemption for your church or ministry. On average, the IRS receives more than 80,000 applications a year for nonprofits. While you may hear that it takes two months, or eight months, the truth is that the amount of time for 501c3 approval depends on the application. It can also depend on the time of year, the type and classification of the nonprofit, and the complexity of the application itself.
- The average waiting period now for the IRS to even consider your application is eighteen months to two years.
- Ordination recognized world-wide for you and/or your leaders.
- Benefits available to churches and charities, such as state tax exemption (where applicable), special bulk-mail privileges, food bank access, and many others.
- Access to a network of praying people, many with prophetic gifts who are available to "hold up the hands" of fellow ministers. God has put together a unique group of ministers in the Missionary Church International.
- Your independence and freedom are maintained. Requirements for membership are limited to those requirements which our Lord would endorse.
