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

Ecclesiastes 7:21-22 - "...take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee: For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others." If we heard everything everyone has ever spoken about us behind our back, we might be tempted to respond rather harshly. However, our text would caution us against acting too hastily, as we have probably often said things about others that we did not really mean.
Ruth 1:6 - "Then she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread." On the surface this passage might not seem to exciting. However, consider that Ruth left her friends, family, familiar surroundings and home to go into a land that she had never seen. She did this based upon what she had heard; that God was blessing Bethlehem. The end result was her being provided for abundantly (including finding a husband and having a child which would be in the lineage of Jesus Christ). There is an important application to be made from this text: God has revealed to men the means of salvation and blessing through Jesus Christ. And while you cannot confirm this truth through sight, will you act in faith based on what you have heard and be saved? If so, like Ruth, you will be blessed eternally.
Proverbs 29:16 "When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall." When sin is acceptable and more readily available, men feel more at liberty to follow their lower nature. Therefore, it is not that men have become more wicked in our modern era, but since sin does not bring the same stigma it once did, men are not as restrained as they once were. However, whether sin is acceptable or not by a society, it will eventually be judged by God.
