Greetings from Executive Director Dr. Tommy Middleton

Sermons - Tommy Middleton

Dear BAGBR Churches,

Luke 5:3 "and getting into one of the boats...He asked him to put out..."

Really interesting order of this story, the boats were pulled ashore and Jesus climbs in the boat first and then asked Peter to launch it. The vacated boat was because they were washing their nets and yet Jesus gets in the boat and then asked Peter to launch.

God does not call us to launch out until He first lays claim of us and what is ours. Serving Him must be preceded by surrendering to Him and then as the launch goes, there will be greater laying hold of us. We have the concept to launch and then invite Jesus to join us. Initially, Jesus lays claim of the boat then gives orders about where to go. Later he launched out deeper and gathered two boat loads of fish, and then suddenly for Peter, the boat, the fish and the fishing vocation no longer had any hold over his life.

There is much in our life that God desires to "own" but we are not "there" yet and thus He has a process to get us "there." We may be just washing our nets and suddenly we see Him in "our boat" motioning for us to come and let Him be the captain...the Lord. That is just the beginning of where He leads us...some never get off shore, some only float around in the shallows, others on occasion will launch out into the deep, and yet others will not conscript a plan for following but will give it all to Him, and FOLLOW HIM.

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.
