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

Hate Speech - Jeremiah 26:8 - "Now it came to pass, when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking all that the LORD had commanded him to speak unto all the people, that the priests and the prophets and all the people took him, saying, Thou shalt surely die." As you read this verse, it appears that times have not really changed that much. If you preach ALL of the Bible to ALL of the people, there will be many who want to lynch you. And it is not because what you are saying is hateful, it is because people hate what you are saying! The Bible is not a popular book in this apostate hour in which we live. But the saints of God are not called upon to go along with what is popular, but to be faithful to God and His word.
Jonah 2:8 - "They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy." When we live our lives according to spiritual untruths (lies), we forsake mercy which could otherwise be extended to us. For instance, if we believe the lie of evolution, or the popular notion we can work our way to heaven, we cannot be the recipients of God's mercy. Because His mercy is only extended to those who trust Jesus Christ, and his redemptive work alone, to save them.
Proverbs 29:27 - "An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked." The reason people disagree on multitudes of subjects is because they have different sources of authority and as a result differing world views. For example a bible believing Christian views the world through the teachings of scripture, while a humanist views it through the theory of evolution. So, don't expect the two to ever come to the same conclusions until they first deal with the root cause of their differences. In truth, man is the product of God's design. It is simply mathematically impossible for earth and all of its varying and complex life forms to have evolved through natural processes.
