The statutes are pretty plain...
You need to incorporate (that ties you into a State)...
And NH only gives the property tax exemption to recognized religions.

Pastor Lear says otherwise.

The donations are not tax deductible for the donor but the church does not pay tax on them.

Interested folks in NH might want to connect with Pastor Lear. He's awesome.

I emailed him in April when I first got to NH, but he didn't reply. I wanted to ask about starting other churches like his in other parts of the state.

By the way, I started another thread on Churches at http://forum.freestateproject.org/index.php?topic=18526.0 because I thought this one should be just for discussing private clubs. Maybe I'm too late, but give it a thought anyway.

PRIVATE CLUBS
If anyone cares to get back to discussing private clubs, rather than churches, here's what I thought would be needed, if anyone wants to start one in your home or other building:
Seating for 20 people or more [for meetings etc];
Setup for serving food & beverages [for income];
Microphone [for speeches, readings & performances];
Enough parking space;
Privacy;
Hours 6 to 11 pm or about that.
Insurance? I don't know if that would be worth having. If so, the members could help pay for it.

MEETINGS
Meetings can be held without a private club and are more important, I think. But it would be good to have both eventually, in each area of the state.
I'll finish this after a bit.

Actually there is.
The First Amendment only covers Congress... federal law.
And its an individual protection on someone's faith... not property.

As for the private clubs... you might wish to read RSA 72:23. It has a lot of wiggle room under section V.
