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

Hebrews 4:12 - "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." If you have never been a part of a Bible believing church, you may be unfamiliar with the expression, "He stepped on my toes." Someone may say this when a preacher says something which applies directly to their life and their sin. The relevancy of bible preaching is not the result of pastors having a crystal ball, or security camera pointed at someone's life. Rather, it is because the Bible is a "discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
A Mother's Advice - Proverbs 31:1-4 - "The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him...Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings. It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink." King Lemuel's mother gave him some timeless motherly advice. She said avoid 1) Strange (immoral) women and 2) Strong (alcoholic) Drink. Or you could say Loose women and Liquor, or Women and Wine or Ladies and Liquor. Regardless of how you say it, it is good advice as "...many strong men have been slain by her (the immoral woman)" Proverbs 7:27, and "Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise," Proverbs 20:1.
Matthew 23:5 - "But all their works they do for to be seen of men:" As Jesus instructs His disciples in this passage He warns them of one of the errors of the scribes and Pharisees, which was to perform their good deeds in order to appear unto men to be righteous. However, no one can ever be righteous on their own merits, as we have all sinned. The fact that we so often do good works only to appear righteous to others, demonstrates the sinful nature of man. We should spend more time contemplating what God thinks of us, rather than what others think of us and God has declared all of us to be unrighteous. But He also has provided a means by which we can be justified (declared righteous), and it is by trusting in the finished work of Christ to save us. Romans 3:28 - "Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law."
