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

Mark 1:40-41 - "...there came a leper to (Jesus)...saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean." The leper in this account was confident Jesus could heal him. However, the leper appears to be uncertain whether or not it was Jesus' will. Perhaps, the leper felt himself unworthy of the Savior's mercy and Grace. Likewise, each of us are unworthy of God's forgiveness for our sin, but because He loves us He makes it available to us nonetheless. We must simply come to Jesus Christ believing He can cleanse us from our spiritual infirmity. Put your confidence in Jesus Christ to save you.
1Pe 4:3-4 - "For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:" As a believer, does the world think we are strange because we do not lust, indulge and party like they do? Do they speak evil of us? If not, we are apparently doing something wrong, as our lives are suppose to be noticeably different from the world around us.
1 Peter 4:17-18 - "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?" Verse 12 of this chapter speaks of the "fiery trial" which is to try believers. This refers to the lost world's treatment of the people of God. Thus the point of this passage is that if God does not prevent these trials in the lives of believers, certainly the unsaved will not escape the Judgment of God. While repenting of your sin and trusting Christ as your savior will not exempt you from trials, it is certainly better than the alternative.
