Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) — Church Portal

+ What is my user name and password to access the Church Portal?
If you have not logged into the SBTC Church Portal, you will need a username and password. If you have already logged into the Church Portal in the past, then you may have customized your password.  If you have not logged in before, the credentials have been preassigned if you are already in the SBTC system. The default format of both your username and password are shown below:

Username format: Contact’s Last Name + Physical City of Church  (Example: smithhouston)
Password format: Physical City of Church + SBC ID*  (Example: houston12345)
       * The SBC ID should be entered with no leading zero (012345 would be 12345 in the Church Portal).

+ Why did I receive a message that "the user name or password provided is incorrect" when I tried to log in?
First, check to make sure that you are using the correct user name and password. Second, your information may not be in the SBTC's system so please fill out the registration form and we will provide you access. 

 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) — Annual Church Profile (ACP)

+We normally receive a large packet with a big form to fill out for the Annual Church Profile, when will we receive that packet this year?
You will not be mailed a large packet or a long form from us. The SBTC mailed a letter with ACP information and a brochure on our Church Portal in mid-August. We are collecting ACP information online through the Church Portal so no paperwork or large packet is needed.

+ I updated our Leadership information online last year, why don't I see those updates (some of these people have been gone for years)?
This is the second year that we are collecting ACP with our Church Portal. In the past, LifeWay's system was used to collect ACP and other information which meant that we did not receive updated information for leadership or church information. Please adjust your leadership on the Staff & Leadership tab in order to update your information with us. If you would like for us to assist you in adding new Staff & Leadership roles, then please complete the leadership additions form...

+ I still want LifeWay to have our ACP information, do I have to fill it out in both places?
No, at the end of the reporting period, we send all of our collected Annual Church Profile information to LifeWay. Many other large state conventions follow the same process and our information will still be reported to the SBC.
