Do you know if you are on your way to Heaven?
The Bible tells us we can be sure of our eternal destiny.  Here's how...

  • Admit that you are a sinner - "For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
  • Believe that the penalty for your sin is death - "For the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23a).
  • Believe that Jesus Christ paid your sin debt by his own death in your place - "But God demonstrates his own love for us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).
  • Believe that God offers you the gift of eternal life right now - "The free gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23b).
  • You must now repent of your sin and turn to trust Jesus Christ and receive Him as your Lord and Savior - "...repent...so that your sins may be wiped away,...if you will confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved... for whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved" (Acts 3:19; Rom. 10:9,13)
  • Pray to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior...

Suggested Prayer -
"Dear Lord, I confess that I am a sinner.  I know that my sin condemns me to hell.  I believe that Jesus died in my place to pay my sin debt.  I now turn from my sin and trust Him alone as my Lord and Savior.  I ask you to save me now.  Thank you for coming into my life and saving me.  In Jesus' name, Amen."  (see John 6:47)
