We are a network of Baptist churches in the Sacramento region encouraging and strengthening churches and leaders in fulfilling the Great Commission in our local setting and beyond. Since the SRBN is not a church, we assist our member churches to do their work by networking together to reach and serve a growing and diverse urban community of more than two million people across four counties.
