Government intrusion into the affairs of the church is no longer merely a potential threat, it is a growing reality.  Independent churches and organizations are vulnerable to attacks upon the basic religious liberties including freedom of speech, freedom to exercise religious beliefs and freedom of access.  IFCA International member churches and organizations are afforded a measure of protection against such intrusion.

In addition, member churches enjoy the advantage of having an automatic 501(c)(3) tax exemption status by virtue of that membership.
