Churches and Political Activities
Is your political involvement hurting your church?
When it comes to church and politics, the lines can be a bit blurred as to how much involvement your church should or can have. While we have the right to free speech under the first amendment, it's crucial to understand how a church's tax-exempt status is affected—or not—when it supports or opposes candidates, distributes voter guides, advocates for certain issues, and more.

Learn what you need to know about churches and political activities from our collection of resources.

Churches and Political Activities

Understanding how a church's tax-exempt status is affected—or not—when it supports or opposes candidates, distributes voter guides, advocates for certain issues, and more.

Being a child of the 70's, I liken the current spiraling morality of the world, the current general 'Chaos and Ridiculousness' and the ever-seeming Godlessness and carelessness of False Leaders to the absurdity of the old Batman series which for 30 minutes took our young minds to a land of ..... NO WAY ! , .... ' this stuff would NEVER happen ' ! or ' IMAGINE if the world was actually like that ? '.   ................ 

AND, HERE WE ARE !

'AS "HIS" CHURCH WILL WE STAND (Jude 1:3) and CONTEND' ?

WE 'HUMBLY' ask you to join us in UNIFICATION for this important WEBINAR.

Were 'WE' perhaps made for SUCH A TIME AS THIS ?

Churches and church leaders receive speech protections
under the First Amendment of the US Constitution—including political
speech. But much confusion arises when it comes to the federal
tax-exempt status that churches automatically receive under section 508 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Among the questions: What types of political activities and speech are allowed under section 501(c)(3) of the tax code?

The following articles explain the do’s and don’ts, as described in section 501(c)(3), as well as relevant IRS rulings and court decisions. They are designed to inform church leaders as they weigh how God is calling them to speak into elections and other political matters.

The Johnson Amendment and other tax laws try to limit activities by churches that intersect with politics—but the Constitution offers more cover than many pastors and leaders realize.

Our Blessing of SIN ATONEMENT !



Shalom and Blessings !
I pray you might find blessing within this past weeks Torah Portion message of 'Arachei Mot' which ties to the OT time of the 'death' of Aaron's sons for offering Strange Fire in the Holy of Holies.
The message was 'uniquely timed' to match up with our newly joined FCC-Hebrews Bible Study question on the 'Sin Atonement' practices of the ancient Jews.
What a Blessing it is to share the 'Richness of the Root' alongside Pastor Greg and the folks whom 'BLESS US' with the use of their beautiful facility, and more importantly, ....... their Fellowship and Edification !

WE ARE 'SO' BLESSED TO SERVE AT THIS KINGDOM TIME
 ............ and with humility withy 'Technological Bankruptcy', ...  here is a link to the last 4 minutes to the above message ! SORRY ! , ... but I do believe and pray you will find blessing in this special Torah Portion Message ..... PART 2
Ha Shem bless you and keep you ALWAYZ !!!

We invite ALL Yeshua/Jesus believing  Jews and Gentiles to recapture this first century setting of our common faith, to experience first-hand the Jewish  context of the bible, and to enjoy the 'FULLNESS' of our Kingdom Inheritance. ...

Yet 'ANOTHER' Sign of the Times !

 Shalom Aleichem

'Chag Pesach Sameach'


Amein, amein, amein !!!

'What a day that will be, when my 'jewish jesus' returns to 'WE', oh what a day a glorious day that will be.!'  ..............
Being 'just a Man', I'm a bit confused as to whether I should be HAPPY or SAD to announce that our FIRST annual PASSOVER dinner and celebration has been COMPLETELY SOLD OUT !

I am Happy in the sense that it truly does appear that this is yet A-N-O-T-H-E-r  'annointed sign' of the 'Lord's TIME' for fullness and a refreshing re-connection between his chosen 'believing remnant' Jews and Gentiles, ... to 'repair the breach' and 'Prepare the Way' of the seemingly soon return of our 'Maschiach', YESHUA.

I'm a bit sad, as we've actually needed to turn interested folks away due to space.

'IT APPEARS THIS IS INDEED H-I-S kingdom plan time 4 UNITY !'

 To combat hasatan's 'spiritual warfare', whose intent has always been to 'BLIND' the children of Adonai/God of the FULLNESS of our Kingdom Inheritenance, ..... this 'johnny come lately' to Ministry, and 'Technologically challenged' Messianic Pastor will attempt to Live-Stream the celebration with my Facebook page which may be linked with H-E-R-E ! on SAT. April 16th @ 2 PM !

Adonai/god Bless You & Keep you AlwayZ, and remember,

Together we burn Brighter for our Christ !
Our Prophesied 'Pesach' Lamb
RECLAIM THE 'FULLNESS' Promised within the Richness of 'the root' !

REVELATION & FULLNESS within the Passover Seder !

 Chag Pesach Sameach !

( Happy Passover )

AN INVITATION to REVELATION and CELEBRATION


‘Chag Pesach Sameach’ !  ….. ‘ Happy Passover ‘ !

Just as anxiously as our Messiah ‘ anxiously awaited ‘ to share the Passover Seder Meal with His disciples that He may instruct them of His soon sacrifice and ultimate ‘FULFILLMENT’ of the ISIAH 53 Prophecy through the Passover Seder, I too, very anxiously await the chance to share the ‘Blessing’ of our First authentic Passover Seder with you.

Indeed it would make for a busy weekend, BUT, I Truly believe with every fiber of my being that it would only strengthen your ’Resurrection Sunday’ Weekend ….. perhaps forever !, after all, …….      Paul tells us these set aside days are a ‘foreshadowing of days to come’.

In so many places today, we see the struggles of people across the globe to move from oppression to freedom. ( we need just look at the Ukraine situation, … right? ). While there’s much work to be done, sometimes it’s in the stepping back and sitting together with family and friends over a meal to recall our past, reclaim our deepest values, and re-ignite the Flame of Hope that burns inside.

One of Messiah’s last earthly acts was the celebration of the PASSOVER. Gathering His friends in a small room in Jerusalem, He led them in a ‘Seder’. “I have really wanted to share this Seder with you”(Luke 22:15). He passed the foods among them. It was there in the celebration of the deliverance from Egyptian bondage, that YESHUA/JESUS revealed to them the mystery of God’s plan of Redemption.                                                                                                                                                                 For in the story of the PASSOVER Lamb, Yeshua could best communicate the course He would be taking over the confusing hours that were to follow.

THIS PASSOVER provides us an opportunity to meet in ‘One New Man’ harmony for world-wide Jews and Gentiles alike as an example to the initiation of this Kingdom-Era of Unity.                                                                                      

COME JOIN IN THE FULLNESS of PASSOVER UNDERSTANDING of YESHUA/JESUS and His LAST SUPPER INSTRUCTIONS.

Feel Free to contact messianic pastor, bill bayliss for questions or reservations at 207-363-1775

SHALOM !
