The Bible Way to Heaven


  1. Admit you are a sinner.
    • “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)
    • No one is good enough to go to Heaven on his own merit.
  2. Realize the penalty for sin.
    • “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23a)
    • “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” (Revelation 20:14)
    • The penalty for breaking God’s law is death.
  3. Believe that Jesus Christ died, was buried, and rose again for you
    • “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3b-4)
    • “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)
    • God loves you so much that he paid the penalty of your sins for you. To be saved we must believe (trust) that Jesus did this, and thereby realize that we do not earn salvation by obeying the Law but are simply saved by faith alone.
    • “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.” (Galatians 2:16)
  4. Believe that your salvation is everlasting
    • “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (John 3:36)
    • Once we believe we have everlasting life. We will never experience the spiritual death of hell!
    • “And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” (John 11:26)
  5. Ask God for the gift of eternal life
    • “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
    • Eternal life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon him by faith.
  6. Let us help you word a prayer.
    • Realize that it’s not mere words that save, but your faith in Jesus Christ.
    • Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I know that I deserve to go to hell for my sins. But, please save me and give me the gift of everlasting life. Thank You. Amen
