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

Matthew 20:28 - "...the Son of man came...to give his life a ransom for many." Ransom is a word we normally hear used when hostages are taken and the abductor is requiring payment to be made before releasing them. However, this passage uses the word to describe what Jesus did for sinners. Each one of us have sinned against God and owe a price that we could never pay ourselves. However, Jesus took our sin upon Himself and paid our RANSOM! Now if we appropriate what He has done for us, we can go free!
Acts 3:19 - "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out..." Converted means to be changed from one thing/form to another, and is one word used to describe salvation. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says that anyone who is "in Christ" (i.e. saved) is a new creature and old things are passed away and all things are become new. Have you been converted? If so, what is different about your life since your conversion? What things are no longer a part of your life, and what new things exist? Have you ceased from your drunkenness, fornication, selfishness, envy and reveling? Do you now read your Bible, serve in your local church and witness of the saving power of Jesus Christ? All of these questions are worthy considerations.
Moral Justice - Isaiah 64:6 - "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags..." What if we all received justice (i.e. what we deserve)? Then we would all immediately be banished to outer darkness, eternally separated from God's presence and goodness because of our sins. Thank God for his mercy and grace, which spares us from this immediate fate. However, if we do not trust in Jesus Christ to cleanse us from our sin, then this will be our eventual doom. It has been correctly said that this life is the only hell saints will ever experience and the only heaven the unsaved will ever know.
