We can have a personal relationship with God through salvation, God's
free gift to man. It is not a result of what we do, but it is only
available through God's unearned favor. By admitting we have sinned and
believing in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, and accepting
Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God.
Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 5:1; Romans 3:24
The Bible describes hell as a real place. It is a place of suffering
and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without
accepting Christ. God's desire is that no one be separated from Him for
eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth.
Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12-15; John 3:16-18
