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 3:20 - "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin." A biblical understanding of Justification would alleviate a lot of confusion about how man is saved. The theological definition of justification is "a judicial act of God whereby the sinner is declared righteous." Righteousness is not something man possesses inherently, but is something which God must impart unto him. God does not impart righteousness on the basis of man's deeds, but on the basis of his faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
Mark 6:22-23 - "...Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee. And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom." After dancing for Herod, a young woman was promised whatever she wanted, up to half his kingdom. So, what did she request? Did she ask for houses and lands? Did she ask for gold, silver and riches or shoes clothes and a shopping spree? Did she ask for half the kingdom? No, instead, at the bidding of her mother, she asked for the head of John the Baptist. This account teaches us a lot about men and women. It demonstrates how an immoral woman can cause a man to act very carelessly and likewise shows how bitterness can cause a woman to act in an extremely irrational manner Hebrews 12:15 (the mother was angry about John the Baptist pointing out her sin). Sin will often produce the same results in our lives. Our carnal desires can cloud our judgment and cause us to act in a way that is not in our own best interest. So, beware of lustful desires and bitterness.
1 Timothy 1:9 - "...the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners..." The Purpose of laws is to restrain the base nature of mankind. We would not need laws, if men were naturally righteous. All of which testifies of the truthfulness of the Bible and the existence of God.
