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

Romans 14:22 - "Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth." If you were a doctor, would you want a patient to be able to force you to be an accomplice to murder by performing an abortion or administering a lethal dosage of poison (euthenasia)? If you are married, would you want your spouse to be able to force you into immoral physical relations with his/her best friend? If you are employed, would you want your employer to be able to force you to lie in order to sell more products or services to customers? The obvious answer is, "No," because you would not want to be forced to participate in something you think is wrong and therefore, a violation of your conscience. So, is it right for our government to try and force business owners to violate their consciences by being a partaker of other men's sins? This is exactly what is taking place when bakers, t-shirt designers, reception hall owners and others are told they must take part in the sins of homosexuals, or close their businesses. It is both a violation of the constitution and of God's word.
1 Samuel 22:22 - "And David said...I have occasioned the death of all the persons of thy father's house." The Bible says David was a man after God's own heart (Acts 13:22), and the account in 1 Samuel 22 helps us understand one reason why: He was in the habit of saying, "It's all my fault." When he sinned, or when others were hurt indirectly by his actions, or sometimes when he appeared to have nothing to do with events that unfolded, he can always be found saying, "It's all my fault." He was a man who took responsibility for his actions. When Nathan confronted David about his sin in 2 Samuel 11, he did not try to cover it up, or blame someone else. Instead, he repented and confessed his sin to God. How do we respond when confronted with our sins by others? It is only when we humbly repent of our sins and take responsibility for our actions that we can be a "man after God's own heart."
It is common today to hear people say, "You don't want to be on the wrong side of history." Usually they are referencing the efforts to normalize homosexuality or the push for climate change legislation. But a much more significant concern is to be on the wrong side of eternity. In Mark 8:36 Jesus said, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Due to the serious consequences of being wrong, make sure you consider the claims of Jesus Christ. Will you be on the right side of eternity?
