1 John 5:1 - Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been
begotten of God, and everyone who loves Him Who begat also loves those
begotten of Him.

Part 1 ~ Really Believing!

John has laid out the proofs that identify those who are born of God. He
says very clearly that those who believe Jesus is the Christ are born of
God, and we can't help but to understand this as "those who really
believe." Why? Because of all of the things that really believing results
in! Those who are born of God are those who do righteousness (1 John 2:29).
Those who are born of God do not practice sin (1 John 3:9). Everyone who
loves like God loves is born of God (1 John 4:7-8). Those who overcome the
world are born of God (1 John 5:4). Those who are born of God, Satan cannot
touch (1 John 5:18). It is clear therefore, by all of these proofs John
described and emphasized, what it really means to believe Jesus is the
Christ. In fact, we can say John has defined more fully what it means to
believe -making belief a lifestyle of godly characteristics and behaviors,
not a religious ideology.
