The Roman Road

 FOUR THINGS YOU MUST KNOW TO GO TO HEAVEN

FIRST, everyone is a sinner. "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one." (Romans 3:10) "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (Romans 3:23)

SECOND, there is a penalty for sin. "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned;" (Romans 5:12) "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)

 THIRD, Jesus died on the cross to pay for your sin. "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

 FOURTH, you must trust Christ in order to go to Heaven. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek; for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:9-13)

 
ASSURANCE OF SALVATION

FIRST, when we receive Jesus Christ by faith, we have received eternal life. "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." (1 John 5:11-12)

SECOND, God wants us to know we are saved. "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, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." (1 John 5:13) "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." (John 5:24)

THIRD, confess Him as Savior before others. "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 10:32)

BAPTISM

First, identify with Him publicly because He has saved you. "Then they that gladly received his word were baptized; and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls." (Acts 2:41)


CHURCH ATTENDANCE

The Bible says in Ephesians 5:25 that "...Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;" Church is a good place to grow spiritually and make new and lasting friendships
