It was not until I understood that I was a sinner heading towards hell, that I realized that I needed to be saved from my sins (alcohol, drugs, lying, stealing, lusting, etc.) The one who saved me was Jesus Christ when the Holy Spirit came into my heart and life, and I was saved, and you can be saved too.

Answers Taken From The Bible
Read Detailed Explanations Below!
# 1: Trying to keep the commandments cannot save us but shows we are sinners:
The Bible says in James 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.
# 2: Being sorry for your sins, or confessing your sins cannot take away sin. The Bible says the penalty of sin is death. We all die physically, but we also deserve to die spiritually by spending eternity in Hell.
The Bible says in Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
# 3 and #4: Doing your best is commendable. To turn from your sins and stop sinning is also very desirable (yet impossible). Will doing these things make you perfect? No. Heaven is a perfect place, and you must be perfect to enter.
The Bible says in Revelation 21:27 Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
#5 and #6: No deeds, charity, contributions to churches, nor any good work by you, can take away your sins or save you.
The Bible says: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
# 7: Water baptism and communion cannot pay for sins. They are for those who are already saved.
The Bible says in Titus 3:5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit. So far it sounds quite bad: we are all sinners; we all deserve to go to Hell; Heaven is a perfect place; nothing we do can make us perfect. How then can we go to Heaven? The answer is found in God’s Word:
The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the dead to pay for all of our sins. He died FOR us. Only through Him can we have eternal life. What then must you do to go to Heaven?
# 8: Correct! By trusting in Jesus Christ as the one who died for your sins, you will receive everlasting life. Even though you may die physically, your soul will live forever in Heaven. Jesus Christ said:
The Bible says: John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 6:47 Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. The moment you trust Jesus Christ as your Savior, your sins will be forgiven, and you will receive God’s righteousness (perfection).
How God allows you to enter Heaven. Acts 13:39 Through him, everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.
# 9: Incorrect! You can do nothing to add to the finished work of Christ. By doing so, you are not trusting in Christ alone as your Savior but only as your helper. You cannot go to Heaven that way. You must completely forget about your good works and commitments as a means of saving you and put your trust ONLY in the Savior – Jesus Christ.
The Bible says in Romans 4:5 However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness.
Trusting Jesus Christ as your personal Savior is a one-time decision in your life. The moment you believe in Christ, God will give you eternal life. Once you have believed, God accepts you as His child.
John 1:12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—
God may discipline you when you disobey, but He will never cast you out of His family.
You have eternal life, which is secure. You can never lose it, neither can you forfeit it. God’s unconditional promise is that He will never take it away from you:
The Bible says in John 10:28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.
This is called eternal security. Serving the Lord is essential, once you are saved. It brings God’s blessings and joy to your life. But if relied upon to get you to Heaven, it will not work. Salvation is ONLY by faith in Jesus Christ.
# 10: Friend, I cannot make you believe in Heaven or Hell. Maybe you don’t believe in it because you can’t see it. But neither can you see the air you breathe, yet without it, you would die. Heaven is real! Hell is real! Why not investigate God’s Word?
The Bible says in John 3:18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
Right now, why not trust Jesus Christ as your Savior. He will save you for all eternity. You can also have the assurance that your sins are forgiven (past, present, and future). God has said it, and He cannot lie. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that you may KNOW that you have eternal life.
