Tcap.gif (1033 bytes)he EagleCross Alliance is not, has never been, and will never be a 501(c)(3) organization. Therefore, we are free to preach God’s word as the spirit moves us, and we are free to support and promote--or speak out against--any candidate or legislative proposals that we so choose.

Churches and other organizations that choose to be incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization do not enjoy those same freedoms, under current law.

We have provided links to several different organizations offering their interpretation of the 501(c)(3) restrictions in order to alert churches and other groups about the legal ramifications of the 501(c)(3). This information is by no means definitive. We strongly recommend that all organizations seek legal advice from their own attorney if they have any questions.

Lest there be any confusion, we absolutely DO NOT encourage any church or other organization to violate the law.

We do, however, encourage all churches and religious organizations to question the appropriateness of being governed by the 501(c)(3), rather than by God’s Holy Word.
