From the September/October 1992 issue of Church Law & Tax Report and the November/December 1991 issue of Foundation News. as taken from Rev. Eastman:

"Churches in the United States enjoy exemption from federal income taxes by provision of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. This tax-exempt status requires that a church be organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, educational, or any other tax exempt purpose :no substantial part of which is carrying on propaganda, or otherwise attempting to influence legislation, and which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of any candidate for public office."
