The Bible tells us that to become a Christian we must be born again (born of God). Being born into this world is our first birth and we are not given any choice about that. However, God gives us the choice of having a second birth, to be born again and to start a new life. This happens when a person willingly turns their back on sin (repents) and turns to Jesus for forgiveness and asks Him to be their Lord, that is, the boss of their life. The Spirit of God then enters the person to give them the power to start this new life. The person becomes a new creation in Christ and is Spiritually born into the family of God and so becomes a child of God. God sends His Holy Spirit to live within believers to give them power over their sinful nature so that they are able to live a life that is pleasing to Him. Through the Holy Spirit, believers are freed from the power of sin and its penalty of hell and they are no longer slaves to their sinful nature. 1 John 3:9 tells us that "no one who is born of God will continue to sin" so anyone who is born again will not have a sinful lifestyle.

Religion will not get anyone to heaven. Jesus said that He is the only way to heaven and that no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again (John 3:3).

[To be a Christian you must be born again and if you are born again then you are a Christian. Therefore, calling someone a 'Born Again Christian' is a bit like calling me an Australian Aussie.]
