List of celebrities who are born-again Christians, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. A born-again Christian is someone who experiences a “spiritual rebirth.” Many born-again Christians have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Several Christian religions use the term “born-again” as it appears in the New Testament of the Bible.

Who is the most famous born-again Christian? Charlie Sheen tops our list. In 1997, he claimed that he was a born-again Christian. Less than a year later, Sheen was back to his old ways. In 1998, he was hospitalized for a drug overdose. Today, Sheen claims to be clean and sober, however, it is unclear whether he still considers himself to be born-again. Sheen's ex co-star Angus T. Jones became a born-again Christian and encouraged people to stop watching his show because it's "filth."

Kirk Cameron became a born-again Christian when he was 17 years old. He has “left behind” mainstream Hollywood, as he now focuses his energy and talent on Christian projects. Cameron's sister, “Full House” star Candace Cameron, is also a born-again Christian.
