"Without faith it is impossible to please Him…"

How to Get to Heaven

Life is in the Son

1 Jn. 5:11
And this is the record, that God hath given to us
eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

1 Jn. 5:12
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not
the Son of God hath not life.

1 Jn. 5:13
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.

To help understand what we believe we have organized the fundamental truths of what is given to us through God’s word about salvation, about going to heaven.
Below are what we refer to as the 4-P‘s.

Our Position Before God

Rom. 3: 10
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

Rom. 3:23
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

Rom. 5:12
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world,  and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

Penalty For Sin

Rom. 6: 23a
For the wages of sin is death;

Rev. 20:11
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

Rev. 20:12
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God;
and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Rev. 20:13
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and
death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

Rev. 20: 14
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death.

Rev. 20:15
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Price Has Been Paid

Rom. 6: 23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord;

Rom. 5: 8
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we
were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Rom. 5: 9
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we
shall be saved from wrath through him.

Jn. 3: 16
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.

Jn. 3:17
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the
world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Jn. 3:18
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that
believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed
in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Eph. 2:8
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of
yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Eph. 2:9
Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

1 Pet. 1:19

But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb
without blemish and without spot:

Our Part In Salvation

Rom. 10: 9
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.

Rom. 10:10
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Rom. 10:11
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him
shall not be ashamed.

Rom. 10:12
For there is no difference between the Jew and the
Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon
him.

Rom. 10:13
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved.

Assurance Verses

flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

And this is the confidence that we have in him, that,
if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

1 Jn. 5:15
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions
that we desired of him.

Rom. 8:1

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are
in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the
Spirit.

Heb. 13:5
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye
have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Dear reader,
if you have taken the time to carefully read this guide then you have
heard the Gospel. The question now becomes, “what will you do about it?”
Will you believe, or will you reject it? The Gospel comes with a gracious invitation:
“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely” (Revelations 22:17). Will you not right now come to Christ on His terms and receive Him as your personal Saviour?

In Luke 18:13, the sinner prayed: “God be merciful to me a sinner”.

Just pray: “Oh, God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when He died on the cross. I believe His shed blood, death, burial and resurrection were for me.
I now receive Him as my Saviour. I thank you for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and everlasting life, because of your merciful grace. Amen.”
