What is the Born Again Experience?
The born again experience is being born of the Spirit. The first birth is from water, and the second is of the Spirit. We all come from Adam, the head of the human race that sinned.

In conclusion of the comments of Jesus. A person must be born again through believing in the finished work of Jesus on the cross and resurrection. We are saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus. It is a gift of God not of works lest any one should boast.
What is the finished work of Jesus?

What causes the rebirth in the Spirit?
When one hears the Gospel of Jesus it produces faith. The person that hears the gospel has to mix their hearing with that faith and believe the gospel. The hearer believes in their heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confession is made with the mouth that Jesus is Lord.
When this happens, the believer’s spirit comes into agreement with the Holy Spirit that they need forgiveness. The believer cries out to God and asks Him to become their father. The believer receives the spirit of adoption.
Romans 10:8-13 says,
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
