Sermons by Mike Baskett

Mike was born in Abilene, Texas in 1962 to parents who were serving in the U.S. Air Force. After living in Montana and Florida, his dad retired and moved back to Abilene in 1972. It was in Abilene that their entire family was introduced to the saving grace of our Lord Jesus and all began a new walk with Him! Mike was called into ministry his sophomore year at ACU and answered the call his junior year (he was a bit slow). While working on his degree in Ministry and Evangelism, Mike ministered at two local churches. He also spent a year as a missionary intern in Skelmersdale, England. Karen and Mike have served three congregations in our 21 years together, each one has been a unique and special blessing! They have three incredible children, Hunter (20), Colby (18), and Curry (13). They have a dog named Granger, two cats, and a gold fish. Mike consider myself one of the most blessed individuals in this world! But he will tell you… “I’m REALLY looking forward to the world to come. What a hope we have in Jesus!”

Spiritual Disciplines – Devote Yourselves!

Mike continues preaching the series on Spiritual Disciplines. This lesson focuses on the spiritual discipline of worship, which is perhaps best explained as “worth-ship” –  – the idea that God is worth, or worthy, of our praise and reverence.

Spiritual Disciplines: Gorge Yourself!

This lesson continues the series on Spiritual Disciplines. In the book we are studying in Wednesday evening Bible class, Spiritual Disciplines, Donald Whitney says, “There simply is no healthy Christian life apart from a diet of the milk and meat of Scripture.” In this lesson, Mike talks about the importance that God puts on the Word…

Spiritual Disciplines – Training

When the end result of hard work is perfectly clear to you now, does it impact your intensity or commitment to that work? Said differently, does purpose impact one’s focus on practice or training? In this lesson, Mike introduces the concept of spiritual training through practice and discipline.
