Welcome to the web-site of Shepardsville Baptist Church. We are an Independent, Bible believing Baptist church. The sole purpose of our ministry is to glorify God. We believe this can be accomplished by winning sinners, discipling the saved, perfecting the saints and contending for the scriptures.

If you are looking for a church to attend, we invite you to visit any of our weekly services. If we can be a help to you in any other way, please feel free to contact us.

In Christ,
Pastor Potter

Monday's Mini-Messages

2 Corinthians 10:7 - "Do ye look on things after the outward appearance?" Years ago my home pastor and I were talking about all of the Christian publications switching to glossy covers. I made the comment that the Sword of the Lord would be next (it has always had a traditional newspaper look), to which my pastor replied, "I hope not." He understood it was not a glossy cover or fancy look that made a magazine useful; it was its content. Unfortunately style is often emphasized over substance today, which is why we elect eloquent politicians who can speak and look great, but who do very little of substance. Likewise, media outlets treat Hollywood celebrities as subject experts, when all they have ever done is pose beautifully and act like someone else. Maybe we should more highly esteem people of substance even if they might be boring, not so attractive, poor public speakers and non-charismatic.

John 7:24 - "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." In this passage, Jesus admonishes us to judge righteously, not superficially or according to first appearances. For example, someone might conclude that King David was a terrible man because he was guilty of both adultery and murder. However, God called him a man after his own heart (Acts 13:22). Perhaps God says this about David, in spite of his transgressions, because he was quick to repent. Be cautious about judging anyone by a handful of events. There may be more to the person than you know.
