This is definitely the most important question a person can ask. How you spend eternity is way more important than how glamorous your life here on earth was. It doesn't matter if you have a lot of money, it doesn't matter if you're famous, it doesn't even matter if you are a good person that helped a lot of people. None of these things have any affect when it comes to deciding where you'll spend eternity.
You might ask "Well I believe in God so that means I'm going to Heaven right?". But that would be wrong! See even satan and his demons believe in God. Even most of the people who crucified Christ and His followers believed in God.
See it's not a mater of just purely believing in God, but knowing you're a hopeless sinner headed to an eternity in Hell and Christ is the only one that can to save you from this certain doom.
You must know when Adam sinned he separated everyone that would ever walk on earth from God. God knowing this made a promise that He would redeem this world so humans don't have to spend an eternity separated from Him.
God redeemed us by sending His only son down to earth to live the perfect sinless life that none of us could live. His son was named Jesus. Jesus knew that He had to live a perfect life and then conquer death if anyone wanted to go to heaven and that's exactly what He did.
You might be asking "Why would anyone kill Jesus if He was perfect?". Jesus told everyone the truth, that He was the son of God and came to redeem a lost world which not everyone liked to hear. Jesus was a threat to the big and powerful religious leaders of that time because He spoke the truth that contradicted the lies they had been telling people.
Satan used these religious leaders to execute his plan to kill God's only son. So these leaders came up with a plan to have Jesus tried for crimes He didn't commit. They even persuaded the people of Jerusalem to vote to kill Jesus and set a known murderer free.
So Jesus was tortured for crimes He didn't commit and then hung on the cross to die. While Jesus was on that cross God put the sins of everyone that had ever lived and the sins of everyone that will ever live on Jesus. Then Jesus cried out and said it is finished and died.
You might be thinking "Well that's a bad ending" but that's just it! It doesn't end there! Just when satan had thought he won Jesus rose from the grave conquering death and making a path for all mankind to go to Heaven!
Now, all you have to do to know you're going to heaven is admit you're a sinner, recognize that without Jesus you are hopeless but Jesus died on the cross for you, repent from your sin, and ask God to come into you're life and save you! It's really that simple!
Here is a prayer incase you don't know what to say.
“Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.”
