Dear BAGBR Churches,

Isaiah 54:2 "Enlarge the site of your tent...drive your pegs deep."

The prospect of enlarging one's tent was God's encouragement to His people; God desired to expand their influence and impact. It required there to be a lengthening of the 'tent ropes' but such expansion of the tent meant--the greater the area, the more vulnerable to winds and elements. Thus if the tent pegs were not driven deeply in order to hold, the enlargement would quickly end in collapse and disaster.

Desiring to have great influence and impact may be commendable, but it will be short lived and disaster laden if the "tent pegs" are not driven deeply! No elevation in life is sustainable if our personal walk doesn't take a deeper turn. The pressures are too great, the winds too strong, the elements too many and quickly those 'shallow pegs' come out of the ground and the prospects of a larger tent are 'blown away.'

Life is constantly about adjusting our 'tent' and yet it also about consistently deepening our pegs. If our tent has enlarged recently and our 'pegs' have not been adjusted correspondingly, we are in a very vulnerable place--unsustainable and uncertain. If we have become busier and yet this has led to less time with God--WE ARE TOO BUSY, nothing is more important than a personal obedient walk with Christ. Drive your pegs down deep--TODAY, NOW! And do not EVEN think about bigger, greater or higher until you have gone deeper!

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.
