The IRS developed 14 criteria to evaluate applications for church foundation status. If a church does not meet these criteria, it will not receive tax exempt status. The criteria are weighted with the four most important of these being:
• A complete organization of ordained ministers ministering
to their congregations.
• The provision of regular religious services and religious
education for the young.
• A formal code of doctrine and discipline.
• Regular congregations and regular religious services.
