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 13:10 - "Only by pride cometh contention..." Any time there is conflict between two individuals it is the result of pride; either on the part of one of the individuals, or both. So, when there is strive between us and another person, we should examine ourselves to see if it is the result of our pride.
Hebrews 11:10 - "For he (Abraham) looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God." While many focus on riches, wealth, peace on earth, a body that seemingly does not age, love and acceptance by all, God's people should rather focus on a city, which hath foundations whose builder and maker is God (i.e. heaven). There the saints shall have all of these things and more. Hebrews 11:16 - "But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly:"
Romans 14:22 - "Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth." If you were a doctor, would you want a patient to be able to force you to be an accomplice to murder by performing an abortion or administering a lethal dosage of poison (euthenasia)? If you are married, would you want your spouse to be able to force you into immoral physical relations with his/her best friend? If you are employed, would you want your employer to be able to force you to lie in order to sell more products or services to customers? The obvious answer is, "No," because you would not want to be forced to participate in something you think is wrong and therefore, a violation of your conscience. So, is it right for our government to try and force business owners to violate their consciences by being a partaker of other men's sins? This is exactly what is taking place when bakers, t-shirt designers, reception hall owners and others are told they must take part in the sins of homosexuals, or close their businesses. It is both a violation of the constitution and of God's word.
