I can't answer all questions, only a few. I guess you can say I also grew up in a secular household (well, we didn't go to church) and that changed when I was 16, so I am somewhat new to it all myself. I really don't know the difference in all the denominations except that the differences are subtle and really deal more with procedure than beliefs (that's my understanding anyway, correct me if I'm wrong). I actually consider myself non-denominational/"only a Christian" because I don't want to be a part of the denomination thing. I saw a message board about the reformed faith at Christian Fools but haven't read it

Born again is when a person realizes that he/she is a sinner, repents, confesses Jesus as their Lord and Savior and turns his/her life over to God (and is baptized). It is as if you have confessed your sins to God and they are washed away. The old you has died and a new you has been "born" - Romans 6:4 (actually all of Romans 6 and many other scriptures).

I hope this helps. There is a lot of information on the internet as well, if you just do a search.

Take care!
