Definition of “Born Again”: A phrase coined by Jesus that refers to a “spiritual rebirth”, that would consist of water and Spirit (John 3:5-8), and be totally different from our natural human birth.
How can you be Born Again? The Bible provides specific instructions on how to be Born Again, as mandated by Jesus (John 3:7, Luke 24:46-49, Acts 2:38-39). The links below show the Bible Examples of how the first Christian Believers were Born Again, by responding in Faith to the Gospel:

The Born Again experience or Christian New Birth can clearly be seen as one reads through the Book of Acts and witnesses faith in action. The Gospel is preached and obeyed, resulting in believers being Born Again of water (baptism) and of Spirit (Holy Ghost). This Bible Born Again experience is the faith once delivered, the church that Jesus built, how His Blood is applied to our life and how we are saved from sin: God’s Plan of Redemption – “the Gospel”.

Theological history is biased at best, but the Word of God is true and forever settled in heaven. Thank God for the Bible, that contains examples of how believers were Born Again of water and Spirit. Jesus said, “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved” (Mark 16:15-16). Thank God we have the freedom to have a Bible and preach “the Gospel” (I Corinthians 15:1-4).
