 New Birth

 

"You must be born again." Jesus said those words in John 3:7 but what does it mean to be "born again"?  Below is a a link to a webpage "New Birth" from Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City.  On that webpage you can choose from 1 of 10 short videos and hear how being "born again" came about in a variety of lives in a variety of ways.
