Important Ministry Announcement
Dear Friends & Partners,
We are pleased to announce that on October 3, 2012, the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) approved God Quest, Inc. (Creation Today is a DBA of God Quest, Inc.) as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
In July of 2007, an independent board of directors and I registered God Quest, Inc. as a new religious corporation with the United States Federal Government and the State of Florida. Immediately thereafter, God Quest enlisted the help of the renowned Gibbs Law Firm (Christian Law Association) in the application process of becoming approved by the IRS as religious charity. The Gibbs Law Firm assisted us in the proper way to file, correctly responding to IRS inquiries, and making any adjustments necessary to ensure approval. Their lawyers worked hand-in-hand with the certified public accountants of the esteemed Brown Thornton Pacenta & Company public accounting firm, rigorously auditing all financial records to insure integrity and accountability.
The process was long and sometimes tedious, but one that we were committed to enduring for the protection of the ministry and its supporters. After years of prayers and responding to inquiries, on October 3, 2012, we were notified by our governmental advocate that we had satisfied the IRS requirements and were granted 501(c)(3) status, retroactive to July 2007.
We are extremely pleased that the IRS has acknowledged our significant efforts in complying with Federal regulations, and our supporters can be confident that any financial or in-kind gifts are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
We appreciate the many prayers from our ministry friends over the years towards this outcome.
To God be the Glory,
