HOW WE CAN KNOW FOR SURE WE’RE GOING TO HEAVEN! 



Jesus loves us and want us to spend eternity with Him in Heaven. Unfortunaley, the sin nature that we were born with will keep that from happening. The only solution is to accept and receive Jesus as Saviour. Accepting His death, burial, and resurrection as payment for our sin. Please consider the following from God’s Word, the Bible:

1. - NO ONE IS GOOD ENOUGH TO GET TO HEAVEN. Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one: Let’s face it! We are all sinners; none of us is perfect and deserving of Heaven. In fact, our sin separates us from God and disqualifies us from obtaining Heaven on our own. There is no amount of good works that can get us to Heaven.  

2. - THERE IS AN ETERNAL PUNISHMENT FOR SIN. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. The Bible says that the payment for sin is death. According to Rev. 20:14-15 this is in a place called the lake of fire. Since we’re all sinners, and all sinners have earned this punishment, each of us deserves hell. Jesus loves us! He doesn’t want this to be our final outcome, so He made a way of escape.

3. - JESUS PAID OUR SIN DEBT WHEN HE DIED ON THE CROSS. Romans 5:8 But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus, God’s perfect and sinless Son, died on the Cross to pay our sin debt so that we wouldn’t have to pay it. He was then resurrected in order to purchase and offer salvation to everyone.

4. - RECEIVE HIM IN ORDER TO HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  If you would like to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour, call upon His name today and He will save you.

Pray this suggested prayer... Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I can’t get to Heaven on my own. Right now, the best way I know how, I receive You as my personal Saviour, come into my heart and into my life; forgive me of my sin and take me to Heaven when I die. Amen

What people are saying about RCBC:

River City Baptist is a great place to grow with other believers.

You can feel the presence of the Lord here. 

Excellent place to be yourself while you meet God. 

This is a joyous church led by a man filled with the Holy Spirit.  We are inspired every time we attend church meetings.  This is a church where people can meet God and Christians can grow in the word of Jesus Christ. 

We hadn't been to River City Baptist in six months and had only visited twice before when we fell off our path to Christ.  We recently started reading Scripture and decided to return and saw Mrs. Soto who said she'd been thinking of our family just the other day. This may seem like a coincidence, but I know it was not.  My husband and I have been struggling spiritually and have been asking the Lord's guidance.  He makes no mistakes. 

Pastor has encouraged our family's spiritual growth, through Bible-based doctrine. Pastor has helped us have a better understanding of God's Word.
