Going to Church The number of good things you do Being baptized Accepting Jesus as Savior The people you know
The size of house you live in The number of cars you own Dependence Trust Faith
The grades you make in school The kind of clothes you wear Athletic skills Looks Your height and weight
The only requirement for entry into God's kingdom is "Accepting Jesus as Savior."  To accept Jesus as Savior also means that a person is "dependent" on Jesus, "trusts" in Jesus, and has "faith" in Jesus.
No person should be stopped from coming to Jesus.
