Greetings from Executive Director Dr. Tommy Middleton

Sermons - Tommy Middleton

Dear BAGBR Churches,

Exodus 39:2 "And he cut threads (of gold)...to interweave with the...yarn...in a skillful design."

Per Moses' instruction, Bezalel designed the garments for priestly ministry and as he was making the ephod small threads of gold were woven into the garments. From a distance no one could see this delicately designed garment with threads of gold although the gold would "catch the light" ever so slightly and although no one could distinguish it in the cloth it was there. Only upon a close inspection could the gold be identified. The gold made the common cloth something more than common but not something that was "in your face."
The gold gave a testament of the grace and glory of God in the work of ministry in the tabernacle and should not even more those threads be evident in our work. Does our work, upon close inspection, reveal delicately, divinely woven "threads of gold." We do not have to tell people we are "doing this for God," or "we are serving the Lord" we just live our life obediently and upon close inspection they can see the 'threads.'

Too often, when our lives come under close inspection what is discovered is the absence of the gold not its evidence. May we do our work in the power of the Holy Spirit, with such grace that although people may not be able to discern what it is, they do realize that this "common" service has almost imperceptible but undeniable uncommon threads of His grace. May our service to Him not be thread bare but thread bearing.

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.
