Any idea where you’re headed if your life should end today? Are you aware that you can be 100% sure that all your past, present and future sins are forgiven and that you will spend eternity in heaven?

How to get to heaven from Coopersburg

Realize you are a sinner bad enough to go to hell

God tells us that “All have sinned” and that “death” is the wages of sin. The best of us by man’s standard is still a guilty sinner in the sight of a holy God and deserving of eternal hell (Revelation 20:15). It only takes one sin to disqualify us from Heaven (Romans 3:23; 6:23).

Realize you cannot save yourself

As long as we think we can get to Heaven some other way than by the blood of Jesus Christ we will never be saved from the penalty of sin. No one will be in Heaven because of their good life, their religion, their baptism, or sincere belief. The gift of Eternal Life is not given to those who work for it but to those who put all their trust in Jesus Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Realize God loves you as a sinner and Jesus paid the debt of your sin guilt by dying on the cross and rising again

Jesus Christ is the only one qualified to make us acceptable for God’s holy Heaven, because He lived a perfect life and never sinned. On the cross, Jesus, as God come in the flesh, took our sins on Himself and died in our place, shedding His blood so our sins could be cleansed away and the penalty PAID IN FULL (John 3:14-18). He then conquered death by coming out of the grave and is now a living Savior.


You must turn from your sin and place all your dependence upon Jesus Christ as your only way to God: God doesn’t take “good” people to Heaven, He takes people who know they are lost and sinful and need a Savior. When we repent of our sin and turn in humility trusting in Jesus alone to save us, God promises us forgiveness and a new birth to eternal life and a real relationship with Him (John 1:11-13; Romans 10:9-13).

My prayer of faith to the Lord

“Dear God, I know that I have sinned against you. I believe you are holy and hate sin and that I deserve death and hell. I believe you love me and sent Jesus to pay for my sins. He died in my place and rose again, that I might be forgiven and have eternal life. Right now, I am willing to turn from my sin and completely depend on Jesus alone to save me and make me acceptable for Heaven. Please come into my life as Lord and Savior and make me a new child of God.”

Will you receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior from sin and have your eternal destiny settled? If you will sincerely call out to God, depending on Jesus alone, you can be saved forever.
