Greetings from Executive Director Dr. Tommy Middleton

Sermons - Tommy Middleton

Dear BAGBR Churches,

Ezra 9:3-5 "When I heard this report, I tore my tunic...At evening offerings, I got up..." 

Ezra had received a disturbing report about the exiles intermarrying with unbelievers in Persia, and the leadership was taking the lead in this!  How did Ezra respond?  Immediately he got on Facebook, sent mass text messages, posted on Instagram and Twitter and blasted away...? Well that is how many handle things; we are too quick to talk to others, talk about others, and not talk to God.

Ezra's reaction is a tutorial for us all.  When we hear things that indeed should cause us to be upset, we need to express our frustration and brokenness to God—there should be an ownership of the problem and a responsibility that we accept before we seek to blame, shame, and blab! Be quick to hear and slow to Speak.  Ezra delayed an entire day before he sent out his first "text message!" I think that too often we think we must say something first, so that people will know how important, smart, and right we are...really? Sometimes those who are too quick-triggered reveal just the opposite.

Before we speak-SEEK the LORD!  Before we blame, accuse, and or condemn we should repent, weep and take a LONG look in the mirror.  Saying nothing is the most appropriate thing to say until we know what is the right "something" to be said.  Ezra's full day delay allowed him to WEIGH out his heart attitude before God, change his tone, think about his words, so that when he spoke, he was heard and heeded. SEEK, WAIT, WEIGH, THEN SPEAK (maybe)!

  In Christ,
Tommy G. 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.
