The Bible Says There is Only One Way to Heaven

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”—Romans 3:23

“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.”—Acts 3:19a

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”—John 3:16

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.—Romans 10:9

The Bible tells us, For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23). God’s Son Jesus died on the cross to pay for your sins—and He rose from the grave, defeating death. If you repent of your sin and trust in Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you can have assurance that you will be saved from eternity in hell, and one day you will live in heaven with the Lord forever.

Are you ready to accept God’s gift of salvation by repenting of your sins and surrendering your life to the Lord Jesus Christ?

A suggested prayer: Father, I confess that I am a sinner and I ask You to forgive me. Thank You for sending Your Son Jesus. I believe that He died on the cross to save me from my sins. I believe that He rose from the grave. I receive Him now as my Lord, Savior, and Friend. I choose to repent and turn away from my sin, and I ask You to help me live for You each day. Thank You for giving me a new life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

To grow spiritually:


Pray to God—speak directly with God. It’s important to spend time praying every day. God says, “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3).


Read the Bible—The Bible is like a love letter from God. It is filled with precious promises for you, and you can trust it to guide your life as you read it each day. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path (Psalm 119:105).


Fellowship with believers—You need a Bible-believing church where you can meet Christian friends who encourage you. Jesus said, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35).


Tell others—Share your faith in Jesus Christ with the people you know. Pray that God will reveal when and how He wants you to share the Gospel. Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples (Psalm 96:3).
