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 14:34 - "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people." People will most often advocate for certain financial or political polices in order to improve the overall condition of a country. However, regardless of the policies implemented, they seem to do very little to make the improvements desired. It is not primarily the economic or political polices which bring about the blessings of God upon a people, instead it is righteousness. So, perhaps, we should seek the Lord and His Word, rather than the secular approach.
Mark 8:33 - "...thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men." Jesus revealed to His disciples what the future held for Him, which included suffering, rejection and death. Upon hearing this, Simon Peter rebuked the Lord and emphatically states, "this shall not be!" Peter had much grandeur ideas for the future of His Master and himself. Other scriptures bear out that Peter was looking for triumph and exaltation not suffering. When many people find out the requirements of true discipleship (self-denial, sacrifice and service), they become uninterested in following the Saviour. They are more interested in the things of man, such as prosperity, power, position and popularity. Do we savour the things of God or the things of man?
Mark 7:24 - "...he could not be hid..." Even though Jesus was in a unbelieving Gentile city behind closed doors with an attempt made to conceal His whereabouts, HE COULD NOT BE HID. Likewise, there is a concerted attempt by the world to hide Jesus from public life. The evolutionists try to conceal Christ; the atheists try to conceal Christ; the humanists try to conceal Christ; the sodomites try to conceal Christ; the progressive politicians try to conceal Christ; the immoral reprobates try to conceal Christ. Walt Disney, federal and state office buildings, the Supreme Court, and public schools all try to conceal Christ, BUT HE CANNOT BE HID! Even neglectful saints CANNOT HIDE HIM. If Christ cannot conceal Himself from the world (as in our text), NOR CAN ANYONE OR ANYTHING ELSE. He is too Big and the need is too Great.
