Like most topics in Mormonism, there’s not always a straightforward answer to the questions you may ask. Case in point is today’s topic, ‘born again’.

On June 19, 2018, we paid a visit to the LDS Gospel Topics section to look at born again, and the page came back with the following info; See BaptismConversion; Salvation.
