Greetings from Executive Director Dr. Tommy Middleton

Dear BAGBR Churches,

Zechariah 9: 13

“I will bend Judah as my bow...”

God will use His people to do His will and... when Judah returned to the Lord they would be an instrument of his might. To bend a bow is to string a bow, putting pressure on it so that it is at maximum strength by which to shoot an arrow.  A bow with no bend, that is, a bow that does not have strong tension on the string is ineffective and basically useless.  For God to use us we must be willing for Him to “string us up,” to bring to bear tension that bends us and actually makes us useful.  A productive Christian life means there is healthy pressure...discipline!  Our life should not be one of seeking freedom from responsibility and service but rather “bent to His will.”   To pray for God to use us is an invitation for God to bend us, shape us, and tighten our string so that we are ready and fit for the master’s use.  If we are always looking for a life that lacks tension or strain then it sounds as though we are looking for a life that is more interested in self service and not Christ’s service. At one end of the bow the string is tied to His Word and on the other end is the submission of our will to His. Those who are BENT to do His will are those who are SENT to do His will.

In Christ,
Tommy Middleton

The Baptist Association's Vision, Values  & Mission

VISION

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.

VALUES

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

 
MISSION

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.
