How to Get to Heaven

1. Hear the Word of God

  • Matthew 7:24-27
    24 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. 26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
  • John 5:24
    “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.”
  • Romans 10:17
    “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

2. Believe the Word of God

  • John 3:16
    “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 20:29
    “Jesus said to him, ‘Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.'”

3. Repent of (be sorry for) your sins and decide to live the right way from now on

  • Luke 13:3
    “I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”
  • Acts 17:30
    “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”

    “Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent.”

4. Confess your belief that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God

  • Matthew 10:32
    “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.”
  • Romans 10:9-10
    9 “that 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.” 10 “For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

5. Be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins

  • Acts 2:38
    “Then Peter said to them, ‘Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.'”

  • Revelation 22:14
