Heaven Can Be Yours

Salvation is God's FREE gift to you! You can not earn your way into Heaven by being a good person or doing enough nice things to outweigh the bad. However, God's purpose for YOU is to be with Him in Eternal Life.

1. Realize that God loves you and has a plan for your life - "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)

2. Understand that the Bible tells us that you and I are sinners - "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)

3. Know that sin must be paid for - "For the wages of sin is death..." (Romans 6:23)

4. Acknowledge that Christ paid for our sin - "But God demonstrated his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

5. Accept God's offer on God's terms:
