Southside Baptist Network (SBN) came into existence in February 2013 as a joint effort of South Metro Baptist Association and Henry Baptist Association. SBN is the local arm of the Georgia Baptist Convention, which is the state arm of the Southern Baptist Convention. At Tara Baptist, we believe we need to be involved in both local and world wide missions.
