Greetings from Executive Director Dr. Tommy Middleton

Sermons - Tommy Middleton


Dear BAGBR Churches,

Mark 2: 2 “…no room, not even near the door…”

 It was quite crowded in the house as Jesus was speaking the word.  They kept coming in until the room had no more room. More than likely everyone was seated inside and there was not a vacant spot.  The door was opened wide and those who could not get in, sat or stood in the doorway to the point that no one could get near enough to hear the Word on the inside. 

We would love to have a situation like that in our churches… to be so crowded that even the doorways were filled with people desiring to hear the Word.  But how many of us would be excited if others who wanted to hear damaged the building…if they removed the roof to let others in to see and hear?  We want crowds; we want crowds that we can manage. But when there is a desperate hunger for Christ, it could reach the point that we cannot ‘control’ them. Would we be as excited then? They were out of control by the religious group but Jesus had absolute control over the entire situation. 

We may pray for revival on our terms, in ways that we can determine and even control, but is that revival?  Would we be willing to pray for a spiritual awakening that exceeds our ability to manage how it will affect our life, our church, our building, our ministry? 

Either we are praying for revival that we control or Christ controls.

 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.
