In the Christian faith, believers are promised eternal life with God in heaven if they follow Jesus Christ. This promise of immortality is a central tenet of Christianity, and one that has drawn people to the religion for centuries.

For us Christians, the idea of living forever in paradise with God is immensely appealing. It offers hope in difficult times and comfort in the face of death. And while there is much debate among us about what exactly immortality will entail, there is no doubt that it is a powerful and motivating force.

Through Jesus Christ, we can have eternal life with God. This life will be free from suffering and filled with joy and peace

    and the heavens are the work of your hands.

    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
