It is important for California Southern Baptist Convention to know what is happening “statistically” in our churches, which is why Annual Church Profile (ACP) data is collected each year. The information churches provide assists the Convention in planning how to best serve churches, and guides Southern Baptist Convention agencies in funding California ministries.
Every church is being asked this year to provide statistics on the “short” form. Also needed are the names of key leaders in each congregation. ACP information has been mailed to all congregations.
Here are a few important thoughts to consider when filling in the ACP:
- Use the statistics from a recent 12-month period of your choice.
- If you are not comfortable sharing some of the information requested, don't feel obligated. Instead, mark that question with "n/a."
- If you are not sure of an exact figure, please give your best estimate.
Be assured that information in the ACP will not be shared outside the “Baptist family.”
We are thankful to partner with our congregations as we seek to share Christ with 33 million unchurched people in California. Your church is important, and the information you provide will help us better serve and resource California Southern Baptist congregations.
