MORE TO COME SOON!!!! Let me know if you have any ideas for this page!

Born Again- Jesus says this one better than I could ever say it:
John 3:3-6 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."  Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?" Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit."

Holy Spirit/Spirit- one part of the Trinity

Saved/Salvation- Being saved from Hell to Heaven Through Christ Jesus.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Trinity- not mentioned as a word in the Bible, but the idea was. Our God is a three part God, but still one: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit. Think of it one of these ways (one you'll probably be able to understand better than the others):
a. The local high school, Trinity High, has a football team. There is only one team, but there are many parts. The quarterback (God the Father), the wide receiver (Jesus) and blocker (the Holy Spirit). These are all very different parts with very different roles, but they are all apart of one team.
b. Trinity High also has a marching band. There are many different instruments in the band, with different jobs. The trumpet (God the Father), the trombone (Jesus) and the percussion/ drums (the Holy Spirit). Each of these jobs are equally important, and they're all in one band together, but very different.
