Taxes & Records

Many pastors, Churches and missions have become victims of tax evasion and other charges by IRS. Banks don’t trust pastors and churches because according to them “pastors are not business conscious, don’t keep and have financial records, and don’t know how to manage money. With changes in the nations taxes, how churches will be impacted or affected should be something on your mind. Being organized with a simple record keeping system should be one of our goals in 2013.

As long as the Lord Jesus tarries, church membership must be our drive– “seeking to save that which was lost”.

Avoiding Foreclosures: Keeping God’s Houses of Worship Open

There is nothing but the strategy of Satan to close the doors of God’s houses of worship.
