What is a “Born Again” believer?

The words “born again” have always signified something of great importance to those who believe in the Bible. They are expressive of the new birth, which follows the believer’s death to, or separation from, sin, and delivers us into the kingdom of God.

The expression is heard frequently today. Many people claim to have experienced this unusual phenomenon. But what is it? What does it mean to say someone is born again? And, how does it happen? What is our involvement, if any, that causes this birth to occur?

These questions are important, and worthy of careful investigation. By examining what the Bible has to say about this matter, we should be able to find the answers.

In John 3:1 and following, the Bible depicts a meeting that occurred between Nicodemus, a Pharisee and ruler of the Jews, and Jesus. During their conversation, Jesus said to Nicodemus: “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus must not have understood what Jesus meant, for he asked: “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”

Jesus answered: “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ ”

By answering this way, Jesus taught that physical birth is not the same as the new birth. The new birth was something quite different. Man had to be “born of water and of the Spirit.”

What is Water Baptism?

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”
-Matthew 28:19

At Full Gospel Holy Temple, we believe that it is essential for all new believers to be baptized, after receiving Salvation and the gift of the Holy Ghost. Just as the Apostle Peter declares in his first epistle, we believe that baptism is “not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God.” We encourage all of our newly saved members to participate in this highly spiritual and sacred ceremony. If you have recently accepted Christ and would like to be baptized click here to register for our next baptism service.
