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 21:7 - "The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment." When we hear the word judgment we may often associate it with a judge determining guilt or innocence. However, in the context of this passage, it means making a determination of whether or not the activity one is engaged in is right or wrong. A failure to judge ones actions and motives in light of the Bible will often lead to destruction. Therefore, we should be vigilant in asking ourselves whether or not God approves of our conduct. This is the same type of things that is meant when Proverbs 21:3 says, "To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice."
Proverbs 19:16 - "He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul..." A Pastor will normally spend a lot of time trying to convince his congregation why they should live their lives according to God's word. However, all of us should WANT to live our lives according to the principles of the Bible, as it is always in our best interest.
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.
