"Except a man be born again..."
Alma was able to feel the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. After he received his strength, he got up and began to praise God.
On a mission to the people of Gideon, Alma gives us further insight as to what it entails to be born again.
Being "Born Again" has a multitude of definitions. It means to change; to turn; to become; to transform; to repent; to be healed; to be redeemed.
It is a process of conversion. The Savior taught to Peter a fundamental principle of conversion. "...and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren." (Luke 22:32) Conversion, or being born again is not a one time, end all event. Rather it is a process that we live each day coming closer and closer to Christ.
Do we believe in being born again? Why yes.
I testify that Jesus is the Christ. I testify that he has prepared the way of our salvation which can only come in and through Him. He is our Lord and Savior. we must come unto him in order to be saved, changed, transformed, cleansed, and born again.
