The Bible Way To Heaven
1. Recognize your condition
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. No matter how much good we do, we still fall short.
2. Realize the penalty for sin
For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). Just as there are wages for good, there is punishment for wrong. The penalty for our sin is eternal death in a place called Hell.
3. Recognize where sin came from
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 (Romans 5:12). We have been born with a sin nature, which has been passed down from Adam to every generation.
4. Believe 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 our sin debt.
5. Trust Christ alone as your Saviour
But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13). Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him by faith.
6. Claim God’s promise for salvation
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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9-10)
Let us help you word a prayer.
(Realize it’s not words that save, but your faith in Jesus Christ.)
“Dear Jesus, I know I’m a sinner. Please forgive me for my sins. Jesus, come into my heart and save my soul from Hell. I’m trusting you, and you alone, to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you Jesus, for saving me. Amen.”
