  • How do I get to Heaven?

    We believe, we are saved to go to Heaven through salvation that comes through the saving grace of Jesus Christ. We also believe each individual should confess with their mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in their heart that God raised Jesus from the dead.

    Ephesians 2:8-10 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

    Romans 10:9 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.

    Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.
