We all were created to exist forever. We will either be eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. The place of eternal separation from God is called Hell. Heaven is the place of eternal union and eternal life with God.
Luke 16:22-24; John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; (Hell); Matthew 25:41; Revelation 21:27 (Heaven)
Salvation is a gift from God to mankind. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or by good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life by faith.

About Eternal Security
Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in the salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.
