Sermons - Tommy Middleton

Dear BAGBR Churches,

Acts 20: 20 "...I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable...the whole counsel of God" (v. 26).

That is the 20/20 perspective of a preacher that seeks to nurture and grow his flock. Paul preached what was needed for them to know although it may have been painful at points. He preached to them the "tough passages" and did not selectively "repreach" his "sugar sticks" or the "latest and greatest downloads from the Internet;" he could have done that since he moved from place to place. Instead, he remained a faithful student of the Word, working through the OT to instruct the fledgling church in the whole counsel of God in light of the full revelation of Jesus Christ. He had a demanding schedule of traveling, unpredictable audiences, and hostile oppositions and he could have softened his preaching but he DID NOT SHRINK from rightly dividing the Word, faithfully declaring the Gospel, fearlessly standing on the Truth.

No doubt over the years, with age and wisdom, we may mellow out in our preaching but may we NEVER YELLOW in our preaching/teaching/obeying/serving. There are too many servants today that are shrinking from the truth because of 'yellowness,' shirking their responsibility because of laziness, and shelving their call because weariness.

It is a good thing for all of us to do personal evaluations of our ministry and ask: "Are we still on task, on mission, in focus?" Those who start shrinking from the truth and those who have begun sinking in their service.

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.
