Jimmy Carter on the Term "Born Again" at the 26th Annual National Prayer Breakfast
Author: James Carter
February 2, 1978

They've been used in many headlines and on the front covers of many magazines. But for those of us who share the Christian faith, the words "born again" have a very simple meaning—that through a personal experience, we recommit our lives as humble children of God, which makes us in the realest possible sense brothers and sisters of one another. Families are bound by the closest possible ties.
