The bible says "ye must be born again"...and that we are "saved by grace". As a christian, being born again is believing that Jesus came to this earth and died on the cross and shed His blood for us. If we believe this and accept Him into our heart as our Savior, He forgives our sins and we are born into God's family. It's as easy as a simple prayer acknowledging that you are a sinner, asking God to forgive you, believing that Christ shed his blood for your sins, and asking him to come into your life to be your Lord and saviour. (You are then filled with the Holy Spirit.) I think that Kiddo means that being born of the Spirit, is being saved or born again, and being born of the water is baptism. But I'm not speaking for Kiddo. This is MY understanding of the bible. Baptism is an act of obedience once your are born again, or at least that's what my church believes, and that I, too, have come to understand from the bible. I think there are other Christian Denominiations that believe you have to be baptised to be born again and to enter into heaven after death. But like I said, this is what I have come to believe, and MY interpretation of the Bible. Just my $.02.

"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6).

"To all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God" (John 1:12).

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
