Church split statute riles national denominations

SB 1305 changes Virginia law with respect to the property of churches that are part of national denominations, supposedly in a way that helps the locals keep the property if they split from the big church. The Washington Post has this article with the response of the big denominations and other opponents of the bill.

What I can't figure is whether this statute would have some impact on independent country churches, currently I think it does not, but they have property disputes like everyone else.
