Born Again

Home / Glossary / Born Again


To be born again is not found, anywhere in scripture, as being in reference to water baptism!

This particular phrase is only found in the N.T. and only 3 times in the Bible  (John 3:37 & 1Peter 1:23).

Being “born” is in reference to the word “again,” someone who will be born again, or a second birth,  literally obtaining a “new life.

This is NOT just a changed lifestyle within the same physical body, as would be expected of all obedient saints of God, but a totally new life & new body, which will only occur after our current physical life (this corruptible body or seed= flesh) has ended.

Our next life (or this new birth experience) occurs at the resurrection as it did with Christ, “who being the firstborn among many brethren” (Romans 8:17) from the dead (Rev 1:5). Peter styles it somewhat like this, (having an incorruptible seed= God’s Spirit) (1Peter 1:23).

In other words, a changed body that will not decay or die (1Cor 15:52-53), becoming true sons and daughters of God, and joint-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17).
