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

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.
2 Corinthians 5:10 - "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." As the 2016 Rio Olympics are under way, I am reminded of this passage. The Greek word translated "judgment seat" is bema. It is understood by many to refer to the podium of Olympians, where they receive their awards. The Judgment seat of Christ is not a judgment for the lost, but for the saved; it is where the saints will be rewarded for their labors. So, as with Olympians, each one who sacrifices much and labors continuously for the lord, will not go unrewarded. So, go for the gold!
Mark 12:44 - "For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living." Jesus watched as many gave to the treasury at the synagogue. Some cast in large amounts of money, but it was a widow woman who gave a measly two mites who was commended. The reason she was singled out above everyone else is because she gave all she had; she kept nothing back. Sometimes we judge our actions based on what we give to the Lord. However, a better measurement is how much have we kept back. Have you given Jesus Christ all of you? Have you given him your finances, your time, your dreams and your all. Have you given Him your life?
