Born Again Christian Beliefs

QUESTION: What are born again Christian beliefs?

ANSWER:

Born again Christian beliefs are based on accepting Jesus Christ in your life as Savior. This is often called the “Gospel.” It is the basic understanding of God’s gift of salvation.

John 3:1-5 states:
    Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.”

    Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

    “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”

    Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.
Born again Christian beliefs include:
The Gospel. We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

The resurrection power of God. He alone is transforming our lives daily. In resurrecting Jesus from the grave, God proclaimed His absolute sovereignty over life and death. This amazing fact is what separates the Christian faith from all others. All other religions are based on works of a powerless deity or person. The leaders of all other religions die and remain dead. The Christian faith is based on Christ crucified and resurrected to life (1 Corinthians 15:14).

The deity of Christ. The Bible makes it clear that Jesus is God. In His dealings with the Pharisees and Sadducees, Jesus claimed to be God.

Salvation by grace through Jesus alone. Our salvation is not merited. Jesus’ death alone pays the penalty for the sins of mankind. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9). Salvation is found through no one else (Acts 4:12).

There is one God. The Bible presents monotheism, the belief that there is one God to be worshipped and served (Exodus 20:3).

The Trinity. The trinity is one God existing in three Persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Faith. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

Judy, a born again Christian says, “I have been a born again Christian for over 30 years. When I called out to Him in the midst of pain and suffering, I knew God had touched my heart and life supernaturally. Rebirth had come! It was as if I had been seeing through a dark glass and had put glasses on for the first time. After being reborn, I longed to read and study God’s Word. I was thirsty for the things of God. My life started changing and today I’m still changing. You may ask how can I be reborn? God loves you and it is His desire for you to receive salvation.”
