          "In whom we have redemption through his blood, (Jesus), even the forgiveness
          of sins."
  Colossians 1:14
          "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died
          for our sins according to the Scriptures: and that he was buried, and that he rose
          again the third day according to the Scriptures: and that he was seen of Cephas,
          then of the twelve."
  1 Corinthians 15:3-5
          "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we,
          being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes
          ye were healed."

          the Father, but by me."

          given among men, wherby we must be saved."

          "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in
          thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 
          For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth
          confession is made unto salvation."
  Romans 8:9,10
          "He that believeth on the Son (Jesus) hath everlasting life: and he that believeth
          not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."

The Bible says that your eternal destiny (Heaven or Hell) is determined by your response to Jesus.
          "And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men
          every where to repent:  because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will
          judge the world in righteousness by that man (Jesus) whom he hath ordained;
          whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him
          from the dead."  Acts 17:30,31

What will you do with Jesus?
"And when they had appointed him (Paul) a day, there came many to him into
          his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God,
          persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of 
          the prophets, from morning till evening.  And some believed the things
          which were spoken, and some believed not."
  Acts 28:23,24
