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

When most people see a bearded guy with a wooden sign which says "REPENT" on a street corner, they normally think he is a little strange and extreme. However, he may be much more like Jesus, John the Baptist and other men of God than you think: 1) Matt. 3:1 "John the Baptist (came), preaching...And saying, Repent..." 2) Matt. 4:17 - "From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent..." 3) Ac 2:38 "Then Peter said unto them, Repent..." 4) Paul said, "God...commandeth all men every where to repent:" Have you repented of your sin and placed you faith in Jesus Christ alone to save you?
Psalm 119:11 - "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." In Hollywood films if anyone quotes scripture, they are nearly always portrayed as psychopaths or self-righteous hypocrites. However, reality is much different. Each saint should strive to memorize scripture, to combat the multitudes of temptations we face each day. Even Jesus, when tempted by Satan three times, responded each time with scripture (Matthew 4).
Romans 3:23 - "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Sin literally means to miss the mark, and in the context of the Bible it means to miss the standard which God has set for righteousness. Many mistakenly assume if someone is 51% good, they will be good enough for heaven. However, 51% is not the standard, 100% is the standard, and none of us have attained to this standard. So, what are we to do in order to have the level of righteousness required for heaven? We must believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again; and trust in this for our salvation. When we do this, God imputes to us the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
