Each year the Arkansas Baptist State Convention publishes the proceedings of its annual meeting, a compilation of the statistics from the Annual Church Profile, as well as a list of churches and missions, and a directory of pastors and church staff. The Annual contains historical record of the convention. CLICK HERE to view the most recent Annual Information.
The Annual Church Profile or ACP is a report that a local congregation completes each year and sends to its local Baptist association. In turn the local association passes the information along to the state convention, and eventually to the national convention.
In the Arkansas Baptist State Convention each church is asked to complete a statistical worksheet and a leadership worksheet. Having this information provides valuable tools for the local church, the local association, the state convention, and the national convention.
