born again christian

How do you say "born again christian" in Chinese?



Do they call themselves as baptist or methodist or any other words in Chinese, esp. in Taiwan?

*The reason I asked because I have some Taiwanese friends here called themselves "born again Christian". Just wanna make sure they meant what they said instead of taking words literally.

In English, born again christian also means someone was a christian and then left the church for a day, they decided to go back to the church and be a christian again. So I am trying to find out if my friends are like that.

    Born again Christian ~ 重生的基督徒。

    They meant they are not nominal Christians -- Christians in name only. Rather, they are pretty serious about their faith.

    Christians from all denominations -- Presbyterians, Baptists; Methodists; non-denominational...etc. use the term to differentiate themselves from those who claim to be Christians, yet are never sure or serious about their Christian faith.

    "Born again" means they have received a new life in Christ. (In reference to John 3: 3)

    I see. When I talked to Chinese Christians from Shanghai, they often speak of someone being 重生得救. Other than that, I am not aware of any specific designation of such term in Chinese. Maybe your friend just decided to get serious about his faith.

    如 rjamesho 所說,一般稱「重生基督徒」,來自聖經:「我實實在在的告訴你,人若不重生,就不能見神的國。」
