Sometimes people ask us: “what do you believe?” The core message of this website is best summarized by the well-known verse in the Bible.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,
that whoever believes in him should not perish
but have eternal life.
John 3:16

And, yes – the Bible says you can know for sure that you have eternal life.

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God
that you may know that you have eternal life.
1 John 5:13

By On July 11, 2018

Some think of it as an old television series from the 80’s starring Michael Landon. Others know Highway to Heaven as a hymn and love its lyrics.
