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

Proverbs 24:17 - "Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth:" Many people reference the biblical principle of Sowing and Reaping, or its pagan parallel karma, and seemingly gloat over the prospect of people getting what they think they deserve. However, God's motive for this principle has a much higher purpose. God wants to bring people face to face with their sin and its consequences, so they will repent of it and restore their fellowship with Him. So, don't rejoice when people get what they deserve. Instead, pray will lead them to repentance.
Romans 3:4 - "...let God be true, but every man a liar..." If evolution were true, what would be wrong with beating your wife, bullying those different than you, attacking other nations for their natural resources or euthanizing the elderly? If evolution were true, nothing would be wrong with anything of those things. There would be no such thing as right and wrong. Instead it is survival of the fittest, and the strong win! Good thing evolution is not true, but since much of society teaches it is, the results are the same. However, it is not the severe societal consequences of evolution that make it false. Instead, it is the fact that it contradicts God's revelation to man in the Bible. In John 7:17 Jesus said, "...thy word is truth."
Acts 5:29-33 - "Then Peter...said...The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree...When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them." The religious leaders in this passage are "cut to the heart" when Peter rebuked them for their rejection of Christ and their part in His death. The phrase "cut to the heart" can be explained with Hebrews 4:12, which characterizes the Word of God as a two -edged sword that is able to pierce man's inner most being. In other words, the preaching of Christ and God's Word brings conviction over sin. And when this conviction comes our way, we can either lash out in anger against those who delivered the message (like those in our text) or repent of our sins and gain forgiveness from God. While the choice appears to be an easy one, our flesh hates to admit wrong doing and would rather attack the messenger than deal with the message.
