Sermons by Mike Baskett (Page 15)

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!”

Attitudes of the Heart: A Holy Heart

Being holy is about becoming what God intends for you to be; it is about being “inwardly” changed. In this lesson, Mike describes the concept of holiness and the importance of real change. As the Hebrew writer notes, “without holiness no one will see the Lord” (Hebrews 4:12).

The True Meaning of Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a holiday dedicated to the concept of “love.” But the typical understanding of love is focused on romance, while the Scripture is focused on “agape” love, a love that sacrifices for others. As Scripture says in John 15:13, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for ones friends.”
