Greetings from Executive Director Dr. Tommy Middleton

Sermons - Tommy Middleton


Dear BAGBR Churches,

Deut. 17: 12 “The man who acts presumptuously by not listening to the priest…to the judge…” 

These were two positions that held important responsibilities in regard to those who came to Jerusalem to worship. Listening to them was critical in order for their time in Jerusalem to be time well spent.  The priest directed the religious life which gave instruction about what was required to live in compliance with the law of Lord.   Not everyone who came to  worship in Jerusalem understood what was required, and often the priests, who were discharged with administering the sacrifices, also were teachers and instructors about ‘what the Lord required.’ In fact, if the truth were known, this may have been more of their daily activity than administering the sacrificial system—teaching the people what the Lord requires! 

The Judges would give instruction from the law on what was required to be right with fellow man and how to treat others so that they properly, ethically loved their neighbor.  It was not just making a ruling or arbitrating conflicts but giving counsel and instruction on what would be best to avoid conflicts leading to the need for judgment.  To act presumptuously was to act in a way that said, “I know all the answers, I don’t need anyone to tell me what to do.” 

Two important purposes of our gathering for worship are to learn how to please the Lord and how to treat others…so when we leave worship we should have learned at least two things.

 In Christ,
Tommy Middleton

The Baptist Association's Vision, Values  & Mission


The Baptist Association of Greater Baton Rouge will be a Network of Churches and Missions cooperating together as agents for positive change in the spiritual, social, and cultural fabric of their communities through Christian redemption and Christian life values. This vision will be accomplished by penetrating the community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through family and community orientation, and social involvement that exemplifies the caring and sharing nature of Jesus Christ in order to effect life transformation in individuals, families, and communities. Actions developing from this vision will be relationship based, evangelism centered, service oriented, and training focused.

The churches and individuals of the Baptist Association of Greater Baton Rouge are asked to MAKE A COMMITMENT TO A VISION FOR KINGDOM GROWTH THAT IS LARGER THAN THE LOCAL CHURCH.


Service – Christian concern results in observable actions that meet the needs of the lost

Relationships – Serving the needs of others establishes relationships for evangelism

Trust – Relationships based on biblical principles and Christian character establish trust

Commitment – Trust based biblical principles and Christian character establishes an       opportunity for commitment to truth and life through Jesus Christ

Inclusion – God’s truth and life through Christ’s presence and forgiveness is open to everyone

Empowerment – All who respond to God’s Spirit receives the power needed to fulfill God’s call for training and service

Involvement – God’s life changing call motivates each of us to actions of service


The Baptist Association of Greater Baton Rouge has as its present mission (A) to establish new relationships between both the churches and pastors; (B) to strengthen existing relationships of the churches and members through a commitment to a vision for kingdom growth that is larger than the local church. This commitment can be evaluated by the degree to which the local church members will penetrate their community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through family and community orientation and social involvement that exemplifies the caring and sharing nature of Jesus Christ.
