Welcome to philskelton.com


Keith and Phil Skelton

This web-site exists to glorify, and make known The Lord Jesus Christ.  I believe that Jesus is the crucified and yet victorious risen Son of God.   He takes away the power of sin and death through His substitutionary atonement on The Cross. As Savior of the world He has all power and authority!  Only Jesus is worthy of all blessing, praise, worship, glory and honor.  

Secondly, this site exists to celebrate and honor the heritage that God has so graciously given to my family.  It began with Jack Skelton when he was called to preach many years ago.  Although Jack died at a very early age, he was a wonderful preacher and the legacy he left for the LORD continued when his son (my Dad) Keith was called to follow in his father's footsteps.  Having preached the Gospel faithfully and truthfully for 50 years my Dad had to lay down the very passion of his life due to illness. In July 2016 Keith Skelton departed this world and entered into glory. The legacy continues today as I have also been called to preach The Good News of Jesus Christ.  

Today at the age of 45 I live to preach, teach and testify about Jesus, it truly has become the very joy and passion of my life.  The history of my family is a living testimony to the grace of God and a tribute to His gracious right hand that has been on the Skelton's throughout three generations of preachers.  In a very real way, the entire Skelton family can resonate with the wonderful words of David in 2 Samuel 7:18.

Thirdly, this website has been set up to fulfill Ephesians 4:11-15.  These verses serve as both my mandate and mission.  My dream is to help you experience God as you interact with this ministry.  It is my desire that those without Jesus will find on this site something that will lead you to Jesus becoming  your personal Lord and Savior. 

For believers, I want these pages to encourage you in your walk and equip you as a child of God for works of service through your local Church.  In so doing, together we can build up your local body and the worldwide Church.  It is my desire that the bride of Jesus Christ fulfills her mission in these days and my prayer is that this site in some small way helps us to do just that.

My innermost desire and constant prayer is that you would experience and accept the salvation, love, hope, joy, peace grace, mercy, love and eternal fellowship of Jesus Christ.  My prayer for all people echoes the prayer of the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 3:14-19

I trust that this website will help you walk closer and more effectively with the Lord Jesus Christ.  May God bless you as you seek His face!  Thanks for taking the time to visit this website.  It is truly an honor that you took the time to check it out!  To God be the glory great things He has done, is doing and surely will do!
