Hi, guys —

I have a question vexing me.

  • Can unbaptized people get into Heaven?

I refer to those who have never heard God's Word, have never met another Christian, or who are ignorant of Christianity altogether.

  • What happens to these people?

Jesus said, the Way to the Father is through Me. (John 14:6)

  • If That Way is unknown or unheard of to these people, what happens to those who are ignorant of the Father, when they die?

Many thanks for any response.

Hi Bronwyn,

This is a common question; it's even in our searchable knowledge base. There are a lot of quick answers there, so give it a try.

First let me say, though some may be unfamiliar with the Father; God, the Father is familiar with everyone He has created in His Image and His Son's for a specific purpose in life.
