What Are Some Facts About Born Again Christians?

Some facts about born again Christians are they are reborn as a new individual through baptism and any past sins they have committed in the past are forgiven. In the Christian religion, pastors and priests usually have altar calls for unbelievers looking to begin a new life with Jesus Christ as their lord and savior.

In the New Testament book John 3:1 says, "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." In this verse, Jesus Christ explained to Nicodemus that being born again doesn't refer to being born out of a woman's womb, but being born of water and spirit. In the Christian religion, being born of the spirit refers to a rebirth of an human being's soul through the Holy Spirit. Therefore, without being born again, a Christian cannot join God in heaven.

Baptism is the process of immersion in water utilized with born again Christians, and it signifies their cleansing and revival as believers and followers of Christ. The Bible verse Second Corinthians 5:17 says, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are passed; behold all things become new." Christians interpret this verse to mean that being born again frees individuals from their past sins.
