How do I Get to Heaven?

Christianity is all about faith. Simply believe that Christ died for your sins and give him your life. Talk to Him; He wants to hear from you. No matter how messed up we are, God loves us enough to work with us exactly where we are!

God’s love or salvation does not require you to be perfect nor does it mean getting your life together first.

Here are some verses for you (all are in NIV):

Romans 3:23

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
