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,

Monday's Mini-Messages

Genesis 1:1 - "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Notice something quite significant about the first verse of the Bible: It speaks of time (in the beginning), space (the heaven), and matter (and the earth). God is not limited to the dimensions of time and space, as we are. Instead, He transcends the material universe. Furthermore, the Bible says He inhabiteth eternity (Isaiah 57:15). Meaning God is in the past, present and future all at the same time. This is why He knows the beginning and the end. As my home pastor has often said, there is only one who is awesome, and it is God! Psalm 33:8 - "Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him."
Acts 8:27 - "And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship," According to this passage the Ethiopian eunuch had political prestige and influence, was trustworthy and religious. However, in spite of these noble characteristics, God still sent Philip to preach Christ unto him. Being religious and a "good man" in the eyes of others does not equate to everlasting life and it does not address the problem of our sin. Forgiveness of sins and righteousness can only be obtained by trusting in what Jesus Christ did to save you.
Acts 7:56 - "...Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God." Stephen's pointed preaching in regards to sin and the Saviour earned him the scorn of the religious elitists. But as they stoned him to death, he looked up and saw Jesus Christ STANDING on the right hand of God. This is significant because the Bible teaches that after Jesus died, was buried and rose again, He ascended into heaven and SAT DOWN at the right hand of God. But in our text He is STANDING! I contend Jesus Christ stood up to welcome one of His faithful servants! Standing for the Lord may cause much of the world to hate you, but that is a small price to pay to be met with the approval of the Saviour.
