Some people say they are Born-again Christians. Some just say they are Christians. What are you??
Update:

No, not every Christian is born-again according to some. When I was in church one day and the pastor mentioned born-again, someone there who considers themself a Christian said, "no not them born-again".
Update 2:

Preggo, with all due respect, you cannot be born again as a baby

this is a good question that deserves just as good of an answer.  

  The passage from the Bible that answers this question is John 3:1-21. The Lord Jesus Christ is talking to Nicodemus, a prominent Pharisee, and member of the Sanhedrin (a ruler of the Jews). Nicodemus had come to Jesus at night. Nicodemus had questions to ask Jesus.

As Jesus talked with Nicodemus, He said "...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. Do not marvel that I said to you, You must be born again...." (John 3:3-7).

The phrase "born again" literally means "born from above." Nicodemus had a real need. He needed a change of his heart--a spiritual transformation. New birth, being born again, is an act of God whereby eternal life is imparted to the person who believes. John 1:12,13 indicates that "born again" also carries the idea "to become children of God" through trust in the name of Jesus Christ.

Born again to me simply means I have started living my life differently than I was before.  Some people may have been living their life for the Lord from the very beginning.

I am a born-again Christain.  Most people don't understand what it means to be born-again.  It doesn't mean that you are born as a baby again, but it means that you are starting your life over again, in a life of truth, and following God as much as possible.  

Hope I helped and God bless

No. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. I have been Begotten by God's Spirit but have not yet been born a Spiritual being. That will take place at the resurrection. It is then that I will be born again. That which is born of the Spirit is Spirit. No one who is alive right now is without their flesh so they are not Spirit yet. No one is born again yet because there has not been a resurrection yet.

I honestly cringe when I hear that term. It has become a label to cover the prejudice and intolerance of a small group. Christians are born again in the Biblical sense but in the political jargon of today, it usually means something very un Christ-like.

All Christians must be "Born again" in order to get into God's heavenly kingdom.  Getting water baptize does not make you born again. Would you like to know more?

God loves you...God bless

I am a Catholic, and for every Baptized person they are born again in Christ on the day of their Baptism. Catholics are Baptized therefore they are born again.

edit-- With all do respect yes you can, you are born into the religion your parents bring you up in and you are missing a few books to the Bible. In Acts, the Apostles baptized whole households which did not exclude the babies and the children but included them. You are in error and all who are Baptized are born again. There is only one Baptism whether that happens as a baby or an adult doesn't matter. Study your bible before you question me or take judgment on my opinion ok, with all due respect. All those who are Baptized are born again in Christ!

Pray the Rosary and receive the Sacraments for the Glory of Christ our Lord and Redeemer!

Yep, Born Again. Though now I'm having my doubts and may leave the Christian scene for a while, take a breather.
