What Happens When You Die?

Life After Death


If you have come to this page, it’s likely because you are searching for answers about what happens when you die. Before we get into that however, let’s talk about some important things that everyone should know about the Bible and Jesus Christ.



Jesus is the only way to heaven and eternal life. He said so Himself:

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” (John 14:6)

The apostle Paul also taught this truth emphatically when he said: “For there is no distinction between Jew or Greek; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…” (Romans 3:22-23). And again when he explained how we must be saved by Jesus Christ alone if we are going to spend eternity in heaven with God: “For all have sinned”. Everyone will be held accountable in eternity for the decisions made in life.


Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6).

In this verse, Jesus is clearly saying that He is the only way to heaven. Notice that He does not say that His followers are on their own way to heaven, but rather that they must walk along with Him in order to get there. The Bible teaches us that all men have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23), therefore no one will ever be good enough to enter Heaven by their own merit alone.

Don’t be fooled by people like Oprah Winfrey (and there are many others making that claim). She said there is more than one way to God. That is a lie.


“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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:16-17

Jesus is our way to Heaven! It’s that simple. It all starts with believing. You do not have to understand the Bible and attend church to receive eternal life. Just like in life, you start out by being born. You have to start at the beginning and that beginning is saying YES to Jesus

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, then I would invite you to do so today. There are no strings attached: no forms to fill out or any other requirements beyond simply asking Him to forgive your sins and receive Him as Lord & Savior (see Romans 10:9-11). We may not understand everything about God’s ways but one thing we know for sure – if you’re not saved from sin then there’s no escape from an eternity in hell separated from God. Christians are called “saints” because they belong exclusively to Jesus Christ; not because of good works they have done. Also, sinners cannot become saints by merely calling themselves by some name other than what God has given them (Matthew 7:21-23).


Jesus paid for our sin on the Cross. We can accept His gift of salvation by repenting from our sins and trusting Him as Lord and Savior. It’s important to understand that it’s not enough just to know about Jesus; we need to be born again (John 3:7). THIS YOU MUST KNOW – We accept salvation by confessing our sins and asking Jesus to come into our heart. That’s it and that simple.


Hell, as the Bible teaches, is a place of eternal torment and separation from God. The Bible clearly states that those who reject Jesus Christ will be eternally separated from Him in hell (Matthew 25:46; 2 Thessalonians 1:9). Hell is also a place where the wicked are tormented by their own sins for eternity (Revelation 14:10-11). There is no purgatory, there are no “do over” in eternity.

“And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.” Matthew 3:10

The Bible teaches that hell was prepared for Satan, his angels and anyone who rejects Jesus (Matthew 25:41). This means that even though humans are fallen creatures due to Adam’s sin in the Garden of Eden, we have no excuse for rejecting Christ’s offer of salvation. As Paul wrote in Romans 1:18-32: “Their foolish hearts were darkened…they exchanged the truth about God for a lie…they worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised! Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts…They exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones…Women likewise betrayed their natural function into one contrary to nature….In this way too men committed shameless acts with men….”. Many in this generation are being fed the lie they can do anything they want and escape the Judgement of God. Please understand, Hell is a reality for the unsaved.


Salvation is a free gift from God. “For by grace you have been saved through faith,” Ephesians 2:8 says. Jesus paid our sin debt on the cross, so that we could be forgiven when we believe in Him for salvation. If you’ve believed in Jesus Christ as your Savior, then you are saved! You will go to heaven when you die. Those who reject him will be condemned to hell where there is eternal punishment (Matthew 25:46). The Judgement of God must fall and it will either fall on the Substitute , Jesus , or it will fall on the sinner. The choice is yours.


It has been shown that the Bible teaches that Jesus is the only way to heaven. This means that everyone who rejects Jesus as Savior will spend eternity in Hell. But if you believe in Him and repent from your sins, then God will forgive you and give you eternal life in Heaven! There is nothing to lose and everything to gain!

So what are you waiting for? Accept Jesus Christ as Lord today!
