    I was raised up as southern baptist. Is it okay to worship in a born again church? The main reason is that my church doesn't offer an evening sermon anymore that's why I go there instead. I have a class every sunday so I always end up going to church during the evening. Please enlighten me up. Thank you.

    Born again is not a denomination, it is something that God does to you and if you don't have it, you will not go to heaven. I suggest reading John 3, where the whole idea of being born again comes from, and post your thoughts on it.

    Here is an example of somebody who was born again. I highly recommend watching it.


    If you are interested in hearing a sermon on the subject, I recommend this one.

    Dear Dliz,
    I am sorry to say that many members of the Southern Baptists are NOT born again. This is true of Catholics, Lutherans, Brethren, Methodists, etc.
    As a matter of fact, God has chosen people out of every nation, kingdom and denomination,too. These chosen people are NOT chosen for their goodness, good works, or because God "knew they would get saved". They are chosen strictly by His will. "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called YOU out of darkness into His marvelous light."1 Peter 2:9
    When those who are truly born again reach Heaven, they will not be able to take any credit at all for their escape from destruction. All praises will go to God Almighty.

    So, what must you do to be saved?
