The Bible says there is only one way to Heaven.
Jesus said: "...I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."- John 14:6 (NIV)
Good works cannot save you.
Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV) "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast."
To know God and be ready for heaven,
follow these steps:
Admit you are a sinner.
"There is no one righteous, not even one ... for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:10,23. (See Romans 5:8; 6:23.)
Ask God's forgiveness.
"Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13
Believe in Jesus (put your trust in Him) as your only hope of salvation.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 (See John 14:6.)
Become a child of God by receiving Christ.
"To all who receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." John 1:12 (See Revelation 3:20.)
Confess that Jesus is your Lord.
"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9 (See verse 10.)
Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Savior
The Sinner's Prayer
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that only you can forgive sins. I ask you to come into my heart, forgive my sins, and be the ruler of my life. Thank you for saving me from my sins. Thank you for the love that you show me everyday. I now know that eternal life is a gift given from you. I pray and ask that you be the Lord of my life, lead me, guide me and direct my path that I may walk each and every day with you Lord. In your wonderful name I pray. Amen.
Praise God! Heaven is rejoicing and praising that a sinner has come home! If you have given you heart to the Lord, we would like to hear about it. Click here to contact our lead pastor, Chuck Whitmire.
