Greetings from Executive Director Dr. Tommy Middleton

Sermons - Tommy Middleton


Dear BAGBR Churches,

1 Kings 11: 1-4  “Now Solomon loved many foreign women…turned his heart away…”

Solomon had many wives and concubines, and although some were only political alliances it is obvious that his spiritual desires became secondary to his fleshly pursuits.  How could Solomon who was the wisest man in the ancient world, who had been blessed in every way with everything, lose his way and wander so far off the righteous path?  “One more wife at a time…” The more wives he added the more distracted he became from his calling and his covenant with God.  Currently the pursuit of multiple wives may not be a ‘problem,’ but multiple interests, even if they are not necessarily bad or evil, can become a distraction which begins to siphon off our spiritual passion for the things of God.  How do godly men and women get off track and begin to lose their way, suddenly finding themselves far from where they once were, and pursuing things that are in contradiction to their walk with God?  “One more interest at a time…”  Jesus warned that we cannot serve two masters and when other interests control our time, money, energy, and talents then these become like the many wives of Solomon. 

Guard your heart, guard your time, and be discerning about the different interests and activities in your life.  When they begin to be the master and not the servant we ARE wandering off the righteous path.  Submit all your activities and pursuits unto God and ask, “Do these things serve Christ or supplant Him?” Is it possible that churches can have too many ‘ministries’ which in effect siphon off resources and passion for the Gospel? Even good things when not properly managed become the enemy of God’s best in our life and our churches!

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.
