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

Matthew 6:2 - "Therefore when thou doest thine alms (giving or charitable acts), do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward." Our sinful nature causes us to want to announce our good deeds to rest of the world, and usually when this is done it will merit the applause of others, but that will be the extent of our reward. That is what Jesus meant when He said, "They have their reward." However, if we desire to receive ETERNAL rewards, we must not do our alms to be seen of men. Instead, we must do them in secret and then "...thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly," (Matthew 6:4). Motives are just as important to God as the acts themselves.
Proverbs 20:6 - "Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?" One of the reasons social media is so popular is because it gives people a tool to promote themselves, and this is a natural desire of man's sinful nature. But in Proverbs 20:6 the man who proclaims his own goodness is contrasted with a faithful man. Therefore, a faithful man does not promote himself, but seeks to glorify God and edify others. Which type of person are we, a self-promoter or a faithful man?
2 Peter 1:16 - "For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty." Some claim there is no evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. However, the bible includes the eye witness testimonies of Jesus' disciples. And while some like to propose the unsupported claim that they were lying, it is unlikely they allowed themselves to be martyred for a lie.
