City Bible Church was founded to make and mature disciples here in Sacramento. But our vision goes beyond that to the nations. While we work hard at the great commission here in our neighborhood, we are also committed to sending and supporting missionaries to bring the gospel to the outer reaches of the earth.
"And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come." -Matthew 24:14

Sister Church Partnership, Rome Italy
This church plant in the southern part of the city was born out of a necessity for a healthy church model in a dark city. The Roman Christian church is old and plagued with human tradition. When the Italian Theological Academy (ITA) moved into Rome, Johnny Gravino and other leaders realized that while there were Christian churches, none were modeling the Biblical church very well. So, Imago Cristi was born.
