How To Get To
Heaven Page

CAN YOU KNOW IF YOUR
GOING TO HEAVEN OR NOT?

YES YOU CAN!

 


What is….Life’s Greatest Question?

Life’s Greatest Question is:

Do you know for sure that if you were to die today you would go to heaven?

Do you know where you will spend eternity?

God says in His Word, The Bible, that you can KNOW!

The Bible says:

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God;
that ye may know that ye have eternal life,
and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

I John 5:13 KJV




If you are not sure where you will spend eternity, you can know today.

The following facts can give you assurance of eternal life…

FACT #1:

EVERY PERSON NEEDS TO RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE!

Why?
Because we have ALL sinned against God.

1. Sin is the act of breaking one of God's laws,
and everyone has broken one of God's laws.

The Bible says:

For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

Romans 3:23 KJV





2. Sin separates us from God.

The Bible says:

But your iniquities (sins) have separated between you and your God...

Isaiah 59:2 KJV




 

Sin means making mistakes. No one is perfect, and each of us do things that we should not do.

The Bible says:

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point (break one rule), he is guilty of all.

James 2:10 KJV




God’s standard is perfection, and we have all made mistakes. (Remember,no one is perfect.)

 

FACT #2

GOD LOVES SINFUL PEOPLE AND
HAS PROVIDED ONE WAY TO RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE.


God’s way to heaven is not by Religion (church membership),
Ritual (baptism),
Righteousness (doing your best),
or Works (volunteering work for your church or ministry) …
God’s way to heaven is Jesus!


The Bible says:


Neither is there salvation in any other:

for there is none other name under heaven given among men,

whereby we must be saved.

Acts 4:12 KJV


 


Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me.

John 14:6 KJV




THE EQUATION OF SALVATION:
Jesus’ Death + His Resurrection = Full Payment for my sin
When Christ died
and arose from the grave,
He paid the penalty for ALL our sins.

This makes it possible for everyone – including you – to receive eternal life.

However, just because Jesus died on the cross, this does not mean that you are automatically saved.



YOU MUST BELIEVE FOUR THINGS:


1)You must believe in Jesus Christ


2) You must believe that Jesus died on the cross for you


3) You must believe that Jesus can save you from all of your sins


4) You must believe that salvation through Jesus will give you eternal life


 

FACT #3

YOU MAY RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE
NOW
BY FOLLOWING THESE STEPS:

1. You must recognize that eternal life is a GIFT from God
through His Son, Jesus Christ:


The Bible says:

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:23 KJV




You can only have the gift of eternal life by having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

 

2. You must realize that to receive this gift,
you must turn from your sin to Christ,
and ask Jesus into your life,
admit your need (you are a sinner),
and be willing to turn from your sin (repent).
Repentance is turning away from your sin
and turning toward Jesus Christ.

The Bible says:


Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out...

Acts 3:19 KJV




 

3. Receive Jesus Christ personally into your life
by inviting Him into your heart.

The Bible says:


Behold, I (Jesus) stand at the door (of your heart), and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door,
I will come in to him, and will sup (live) with him, and he with me.

Revelation 3:20 KJV




 

THE KEY QUESTION:
Is There Any Reason You Could Give God,
That God Would Accept,
As To Why You Cannot
Ask Jesus Christ Into Your Life
Right Now?

 

If You Will Pray This Prayer,

Jesus Will Come Into Your Life
RIGHT NOW.

Lord Jesus,
I am a sinner and need to be saved.
I admit that I cannot save myself.
I accept your death and resurrection
as payment for my sin.
I repent of my sin and turn to You.
I open the door of my heart
and invite you to come in.
Thank you Jesus,
for hearing my prayer,
saving me
and giving me eternal life.
In your Name I pray.
Amen.

Does this prayer express the desire of your heart?

If it does, pray it right now!
The Lord Jesus will instantly save you.


The Bible says:

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved.

Romans 10:9 KJV





This verse is a promise from God, and you can count on God to keep His Promises!

How Can I Be Sure God has Given Me Eternal Life?

Did I mean what I just said to God in prayer?
Did I confess that I am a sinner and repent of my sin?
Did I call upon the Lord to come into my heart?

If You Can Say “Yes” To These Questions,
Then, Based Upon God’s Word,
You Can Be Sure That You Have Eternal Life.

Why? Because God keeps His Word.

The Bible says:


Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

John 6:47 KJV


 


For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Romans 10:13 KJV


 


These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God;
that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

I John 5:13 KJV




God Said It! I Did It! That Settles It!

You do not need to do anything else for your salvation.

The statements after this are things you should do as a result of your salvation
but do not add to it.
Salvation is by faith in Christ alone.

(Note: This is not the end of the Christian life, it is only the beginning!)

Please e-mail us and let us know that you accpeted Christ as your Saviour.
We want to rejoice with you in your decision.

Now That I Have Prayed To Receive Christ,
What Does God Expect Of Me?

Your new life in Christ is an
exciting one
and one filled with
New and wondrous things
that God has in store for you.

1. Make your profession of faith in Jesus Christ public
by following Jesus in believer’s baptism by immersion.

Why be baptized by immersion?


A. Jesus commands it. It is the first step of obedience to Him.

The Bible says:

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Matthew 28:19 KJV




 

B. Jesus was baptized to set an example.
Jesus was baptized (by John the Baptist) and God was well pleased.

The Bible says:


And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.


Matthew 3:16-17 KJV





If it pleased God when Jesus was baptized,
how do you think it will make God feel
when you get baptized?


C. Baptism pictures the death, burial and resurrection of God’s Son.

The Bible says:

Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death:

that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father,

even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Romans 6:3-4 KJV




 

D. It is the first step of a New Christian

The Bible says:

Then they that gladly received his word were baptized:

Acts 2:41 KJV


(Note: Baptism is to be after salvation, not before.)




2. Get actively involved in a local New Testament,
King James Bible-believing church.


The Bible says:

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is;
but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Hebrews 10:25 KJV


 

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Matthew 18:20 KJV




 

3. Read your Bible, beginning with the gospel of John,
pray, and share Jesus with others who need Him.

 

Sin will keep you from the Bible,
or the Bible will keep you from sin!



The Bible says:

Thy word (Bible) have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Psalm 119:11 KJV
