Yes, the Christian is essentially born again! As believers in Christ Jesus, we are the Christian! The phrase “born again” applies to people who have been born from above, that is, people who have accepted Jesus as their Saviour/Christ or Redeemer. The born again or the christian soul realises that they are a sinner (Romans 3:23) and that the penalty for that sin is death (Romans 6:23). To rectify the circumstances, God sent His only Son to die in their place, to take the punishment for sin (Romans 5:8). After Jesus’ death, He arose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3-6). Jesus is the only way to God (John 14:6), and He provides the blessing of salvation. Each person has the choice to receive or reject God’s gift through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9) and experience the new birth (John 3:1-8). Whoever follows Jesus as Christ, the Son of God, and has accepted His gift of life is the Christian. That is where the journey of rebirth begins. That’s it!!!
