God made a way for you to get to
So how do we receive salvation, forgiveness of sin and eternal life with Jesus? We receive Jesus Christ through faith. The step of faith grants us confirmation through God's Holy Spirit that we have eternal life in heaven and also grants us power to live for him while on earth. "By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a     result of works that no one should boast."                                   - Apostle Paul in Ephesians 2:8,9 We receive Jesus Christ through a personal act. Receiving Christ involves trusting Christ to come into our lives to forgive our sins. He has the power to forgive sin.   "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who   believe in His name."                                                                        - Jesus Christ in John 1:12 Remember, just to agree intellectually that Jesus Christ is the Son of God is not enough. We need to receive Jesus Christ by faith, as an act of our will, and this new faith is found true by our willingness to follow his words. “If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's    commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you,   and that your joy may be full. "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             - Jesus Christ in John 15:10-12 Is forgiveness of sin by Jesus the only way to Heaven? Yes. You cannot get to Heaven any other way. Not through a church, organization or your own good works. Jesus said to them,                “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through Me.”      - Jesus Christ in John 14:6 Jesus is the only way because he paid the complete price for your penalty of sin on the cross. It was because of his obedience to the Father we can have eternal life in Heaven. That is why he said it was finished when on the cross. “Jesus knew that His mission was now finished, and to fulfill Scripture He said, "I am thirsty." A jar of sour wine was sitting there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put it on a hyssop branch, and held it up to His lips. When Jesus had tasted it, He said, "It is finished!" Then He bowed His head and released His spirit.”     - Jesus Christ in John 19:28-30 We have proof that Jesus is God and can forgive sin. He proved that he had power over sin and death when on the third day he rose from the grave. "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?"      - Jesus Christ in John 11:25-26 This is the wonderful “Gospel”, which means the good news! Jesus provided the way for us to get to Heaven. The following video explains this wonderful news in greater detail.
This diagram illustrates the separation of a God who is holy and man who is sinful. A great distance separates the two because of the curse sin brought. The arrows illustrate that man has continually tried to reach God and establish a personal relationship with Him through his own efforts, such as a good life, philosophy, or even multiple religions. But he will inevitably fails because of his own sin. God had to make a way, and because He loves us, He did. “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”                                                                     - Apostle Paul in Romans 3:23 The next diagram illustrates that God has bridged the distance that separates us from Him by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to be born and then die for us on the Roman cross to pay the penalty for our sins. God knew it was the only way we would have access to heaven. This historical act happened about 2,000 years ago, and as God directs, continues to be shared with the world today. You are now reading about this wonderful news of God’s love! “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus),   that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”     - Jesus Christ in John 3:16   
God’s ultimate demonstration of love and forgiveness of sin ~ Jesus Christ paid for our entrance into heaven with his own life! 
It's time to talk to God by prayer and receive His salvation. God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart. Below is a simple prayer that can begin your new life. You can pray a prayer like this to God:    "Dear Lord Jesus, I am a sinner and I need you. I thank You for coming to earth to die on a cross for   my sins. Please forgive me and save me. I now open the door of my life and receive You as my God,   Savior and Lord. I thank you for your promised forgiveness and giving me eternal life in heaven with   you. Please take control of my life now, give me purpose and make me the kind of person you want   me to be. Please help me to learn to follow you each day and grow closer. Amen." You now know that God has promised eternal life to those who accept Jesus Christ. Give thanks often that Christ is in your life and that He will never leave you. Your salvation is secure because it’s based on God’s promise that he lives in you and that you have eternal life from the very moment you repented and invited him into your life. “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have   eternal life. And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his   will he hears us.”                                                                                              - John in 1 John 5:13-14 If you prayed the prayer above, please let us know, so we can help you in your new life in Jesus Christ!
