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 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.
Romans 1:20 - "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made." You may not be able to see God directly, but you can see Him indirectly in the "things that are made," (i.e. the creation). The beauty, complexity and order of the universe all point to the truth that there is a God. And while the creation reveals Him in a general way, there is not enough revelation to save you. For that, You must turn to the Bible.
Mark 14:3 - "...there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his (Jesus) head." You might think that such an act of devotion would have been praised. However, just the opposite occurs. The woman is criticized and not by the unbelieving, but by the disciples of Jesus Christ. They argued the ointment could have been sold and the proceeds given to the poor. When you act in complete devotion to Christ and give your all to Him, don't expect it to be met with universal praise amongst the saints. Instead, expect to be labeled as radical, extreme and even negligent. However, be of good cheer, like the woman in our text, you will be commended by the Saviour.
