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

Ezekiel 33:2-6 - "Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand. So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me." A watchman who doesn't sound his trumpet at impending danger is not only useless, but responsible for the deaths of those he failed to warn. Likewise, Christians who do not warn sinners to "flee from the wrath to come," (Matthew 3:7) will be held responsible by God for neglecting their duties. So, please forgive some of us if we are a little zealous in our efforts to point people to Jesus Christ. If you have not repented of your sin and trusted Christ as your savior, please consider it.
Revelation 3:19 - "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent." Most everyone would agree we should love one another, but not everyone would agree as to what constitutes love. Some would define it by cultural norms. Others would define it be their own ideas and experiences. And yet others, would define it by the Bible; and the biblical definition of love is seeking the best interest of another. It is common for unbelievers to accuse Bible believing people of being unloving for pointing out that certain things are sinful. However, since the Bible teaches those who do not repent of their sins are doomed to endure the judgment of God, the only loving person is the one warning the sinner to turn from his sin and ask God to forgive him. Those who ignore someone's sinful behavior, or worse excuse it, are not seeking the individuals eternal best interest.
Romans 3:20 - "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin." God did not give the Old Testament law as a means of being justified (declared righteous) or saved. Instead, the law demonstrates man's sinfulness. Yet, nearly all religious institutions teach that a man earns a place in heaven by his good works. However, the truth is we must stop trusting in our own righteousness and appropriate the work of Christ to our lives by faith, if are ever to be given access into heaven. Romans 10:3 - "For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God."
