born-again Christian definition

A Christian who has experienced a distinct, dramatic conversion to faith in Jesus, especially a member of certain Protestant groups that stress this experience. The expression recalls words of Jesus in the Gospels: “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (See evangelical.)

Note: In nonreligious contexts, someone who is “born again” has a new enthusiasm for doing something.
