About this course

As a work of Almighty God, the new birth produces drastic and permanent spiritual changes in those who experience it. Dr. Steven Lawson states, “The greatest evidence of the power of God I believe is in the new birth and in the salvation of a soul.” In this course, Dr. Lawson expounds upon the nature and character of the new birth, looking at its absolute necessity, its means, causes, and its results. All those who come to experience the new birth are transformed as they are made alive in Christ and brought into the family of God forever.
