    I've been a Christian for about 60 years.
    Brought up in the Church of England to believe I was a Christian, I was brought to repentance by meditation on the great commandments - I couldn't tick them off as 'kept.'
    I've followed the Reformed faith & Covenant theology the whole time apart from being baptised a few months after conversion.

    Welcome to the board! Always good to get the perspectives of Christians outside the U.S.

    West London, about 5 miles from Heathrow Airport. Our church is Cranford Baptist, too close to the northern runway.
    Our Pastor is Pakistani, married to a converted Sikh.

    When I lived in Germany- I always wanted to go to London - to visit 175 Towerbrideg Rd - the home of Trans World Radio!.
    Never made it - before coming back to the "world"

    Welcome to BB, and as In the Light said - always great to have someone from your side of the Great Pond!

    Welcome. Transplanted Covenanters, BTW, were among the most vociferous supporters of the American Revolution.
