Heaven Bound?

If you are not certain of going to Heaven when you die, you can be. Let me show you 3 things that the Bible says about it:

1. You're a sinner and the penalty is death.
Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
Face it. I'm a sinner. You're a sinner. Everyone is a sinner. We have missed the mark of perfection and fallen short of the target. You don't have to be good to go to Heaven, you have to be perfect. The penalty of our sin is death. You don't owe God money, baptism, church membership, good works, or promises to do better. You owe a death penalty.

2. Jesus paid the price.
Romans 5:8 says, "But God commendeth His love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
The penalty of your sin is death. Jesus died. Get it? He was your substitute. When He died on the cross, He was paying for every rotten sin of your life. He died for you. He loved you that much. Three days later, He rose from the dead complete God’s salvation plan, and to prove that He is our Savior. God was totally satisfied with the death penalty that Jesus paid for your sin.

3. You can have everlasting life by believing in Him.
John 3:16 says ,"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."
Ephesians 2:8, 9 says, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast."
Believing in Christ means to trust or rely upon Him fully. Won't you do this now? Don't trust in church, baptism, money or good works. Trust in Jesus and God will give you everlasting life as a gift. You can then be certain of going to Heaven whenever you die.
Send us an e-mail and let us know that you are now certain of Heaven. We would love to know.
