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!”

Jesus as creator

Jesus is the CREATOR of the universe. “Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made (John 1:3 NIV).” In this lesson, Mike looks at the majesty of the creation and the Creator.

Jesus is the light

In this sermon, Mike takes a second look at verses 13-14, and examines it through the lens of Ephesians 5:8-10. Since God delivered us into the kingdom of light, what exactly is that supposed to look like?

The Three Pillars

The amazing thing about the church at Colossae was the wonderful things they were known for – faith, hope, and love – the very thing that every Christians wants to be know for! In this lesson, Mike focuses on these critical pillars of the Christian walk, and how they always bear fruit in our lives.

Keep On Keeping On

This is the final lesson from the Spiritual Disciplines series, based on the book by Donald S. Whitney, “Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life.” In this lesson, Mike discusses the need to make progress on our journey with God; the need to be diligent as we train ourselves to be Godly.

Knowledge vs. Wisdom

“Spiritual discipline” begins with knowledge, but knowledge doesn’t necessarily mean that someone will act with wisdom. In today’s world, there is certainly no shortage of knowledge – at your fingertips! But…are we wise? In this lesson, Mike preaches about the process of translating knowledge into understanding, and, ultimately, wisdom.”
