Make Heaven YOUR Place

We are an Independent Baptist Church located in Hilo, HI., with a heart to reach the world with the message of Jesus Christ. We believe the Bible clearly reveals the way to Heaven. God say’s that we can know… 1 John 5:13 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. Realize God loves you.
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

2. Understand we are all sinners.
Romans 3:10 says, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one.”
Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

3. The bad news – there is a penalty for sin.
Romans 6:23a says, “For the wages of sin is death…” Sin comes with a big price tag – and the payment for that price tag is death. Becuase of our sin, we deserve death in Hell. However, the good news is that Someone has already paid the price of death for us.

4. The good news – Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sins.
Romans 6:23b says, “…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth [showed] His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

5. You must personally accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour and complete payment for your sin.
Romans 10:9,10 say, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raise Him form the dead, thou shalt be saved, for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness…”
Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Allow us to help you word a prayer of salvation. Realize it’s not mere words that save you, but faith in Christ.
“Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for loving me even when I have not deserved it. I acknowledge that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ, died, was resurrected from the dead, is alive today, and hears my prayer. The best way I know how, I trust you alone to be my Saviour. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

6. If you have called upon the Lord Jesus Christ to save you and opened your heart to receive Him, He has promised to come in.
John 1:12 says, “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.”

Please let us know if you have made this important decision. We would love to rejoice with you and help you to grow in Christ.
