“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from death then you will be saved”

(Paul’s Letter to Romans, Chapter 10, verse 6).

Nobody can spend much time in an evangelical church like St Alban’s without hearing these words. But what do they actually MEAN? (Hint: enter them as a search term on Google. Further hint: Some of my Christian forebears probably recited these words daily to themselves to deal with pressure to say “Hitler is Lord” or “Stalin is Lord” instead.)

I came to St Alban’s in 1982 because it was the local church; I stayed because it is friendly and loving place where you don’t need to “leave your brains outside the door”. In other words, the Bible is taught seriously, and pastoral support through home groups and connection to the outside world are taken seriously. Most importantly, although no Christian, least of all a St Alban’s member, does everything perfectly, we do take Paul’s words seriously.

If you want to know what “Jesus is Lord” and similar words mean in practice for you,  if you live within reasonable commuting distance from St Alban’s, and are at a loose end regarding a church, then you could do much worse than checking us out. I look forward to catching up with you.
