Data Archive > U.S. Surveys > Religious Groups > Members or Leaders > Baptist > Summary


The Southern Baptist Convention Annual Church Profile (ACP) seeks to preserve Southern Baptist history while collecting data on the ministries occurring in Southern Baptist churches. Another goal of the ACP is to allow individual Southern Baptist churches to examine their own progress of ministry and growth. Church clerks for Southern Baptist churches compile information, including church membership, Sunday school, discipleship, finances and mission data. This data file focuses on the ACP's Sunday school reports for 1980.
