How to Get to Heaven

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” – John 14:6

Understand your sinful condition

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:10) No one is good enough to go to Heaven on his own merit. No matter how much we try, we still fall short. ”For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

Realize there is a price to pay for sin

“For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23a) Wages are a payment for something you have done. We will all die physically to pay for our sins, but we don’t have to die spiritually. Only those who do not get their sins forgiven before they die will experience spiritual death. Spiritual death is in the lake of fire. “And death and hell were cast in the lake of fire. This is the second death.” (Revelation 20:14)

Believe that Jesus Christ died for you

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) Christ’s great love for us was shown, when He died on the cross to pay for our sins. He paid for our sins with His blood. Jesus was punished by God for our sins, so we would not have to pay for them in the lake of fire ourselves. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

Trust Christ alone as your Savior

“…But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23b) Everlasting life is a free gift that God gives to us. When we ask Jesus Christ to forgive us of our sins and to save us from the lake of fire, He will come into our heart. We must put our faith in Jesus Christ as our only way to get to Heaven. “For whosoever shall call upon the name the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)

Let us help you word a prayer to receive God’s free gift

”Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. Please forgive me for all of my sins, and wash them away with your blood you shed on the cross for me. Please come into my heart and save me from the lake of fire. I’m trusting you, as my only way to get to Heaven. Thank you.”
