Annual Church Profile
All ACP Information needs to be entered online or forms turned in to the associational office by September 25th. All church clerks who have this completed will have their names entered for a chance to win one of four $25.00 gift cards that will be given out at the associational meeting in October.
Why Fill Out the
Annual Church Profile?
The Annual Church Profile (ACP) is an annual report of vital statistical and biographical information from each Southern Baptist Church. Why fill out the ACP?
It helps your church to be able to evaluate itself. Are you growing or declining? How does your church compare today with 5 or 10 years ago? When you turn in your ACP information, that information is only a few clicks away!
It helps our association evaluate how we are doing. It is hard to know if we are growing if some do not report their figures.
It helps our Baptist State Convention and SBC to know how they are doing too.
Your ACP report is used to determine the number of messengers that you are entitled to at the ABA, NC Baptist Convention, and the SBC meetings.
Because our state and national conventions are so large, other leaders and ministries within them don’t know that your church is participating in the convention unless they can see it reported in the ACP. This in turn can make it hard for a church or pastor to access some funds in a few of their special programs.
It is also a responsibility of each church of the Anson Baptist Association to do an ACP each year. (see By-Laws)
Therefore, it is in each church and pastor’s best interest for their church to complete their ACP statistics each year! Thank you for your help!!
Please have your ACP information entered online or returned to the ABA office by September 25th so your information can be included in our annual book of reports for the October associational meeting. Please contact Kim Glenn at: email@example.com or (704) 694-2790, for more information or assistance.
