ANSWER:   NO!   None of these things can help you get to heaven. The Bible says…

“He saved us, not because of the good things we did, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins and gave us a new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us because of what Jesus Christ our Savior did.” Titus 3:5 & 6

“God saved you by his special favor (GRACE) when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.” Ephesians 2:8 & 9

GRACE: Receiving what we don’t deserve and could never earn – namely forgiveness of sin, a home in heaven, and eternal life!

Did you fail the Quiz? Be honest. If so, then you MUST change your mind about trusting your good works to get to heaven before it is too late (2 Cor. 6:2)! God loves you with an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3). He is not willing that any should perish in that place called Hell (2 Peter 3:9). But God is also holy which means He cannot overlook your sin (Isaiah 59:2).

Jesus took your punishment when he died on the cross so you would not have to be punished in hell. This is GOOD NEWS!!

Follow the ABCs to become a child of God…


 Admit you have sinned.

 Believe Jesus died for ALL your sin.

 Choose Jesus as your Savior…TODAY!


You don’t have to pray a special prayer or feel a certain amount of remorse to be saved. While turning from your sin is always a good thing to do, it cannot help you get to heaven. Simply take God at His Word. Change your mind about trusting in the good things you do. Don’t be guilty of split-trust – of trusting in Jesus PLUS your good works to be saved. In essence you are telling God that what Jesus did on the cross is somehow not enough! That is a wicked thing to do. God the Father is satisfied with the payment that God the Son completed by dying for your sin and rising from the dead.

For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. John 1:17

Seven Steps – to understand God’s One Way to get to Heaven


1 – All have sinned.  “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

– The payment for sin is death.  “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

– There is no sin in heaven.  “For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.” (Psalm 5:4)

– Good works can’t save.  “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.”      (Ephesians 2:8 & 9)

– Christ died.  “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
(1 Corinthians 15:3b & 4)

6 – Only believe in Christ.  “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”          (Acts 16:31a)

7 – You can be sure of going to heaven.  “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life.”    (1 John 5:13a)

Why not make that most important choice to believe in Jesus as your Savior today?  If you used to be confused thinking that your good works would somehow help you get to heaven, then change your mind today.  Please let us know of your decision.  We would love to hear from you to rejoice with you.  Let us know also if we can be of any further assistance to you as you begin to grow in your new relationship with the Lord.
