Gary’s Profile 

The Keys of Heaven Ministries

Victoria and Gary Westgerdes,
The Keys of Heaven Ministries

Hi, my name is Gary Westgerdes, the founder of The Keys of Heaven Ministries. I was born and raised in a Catholic family in a mostly Catholic community, in Ohio. At age seven a religion class that I was in was being taught about heaven and hell; God was convicting me of my sin and I was worried about going to hell. A week or so later, the class teacher, I don’t know why, read John 3:16 and upon hearing God’s word I was born again as I trusted in Jesus for the forgiveness of my sins, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

After wandering from God my Father this prodigal son returned home at age 23 for forgiveness. I celebrated my 50th year as a Child of God the summer of 2013. View my testimony to hear more.

My wife Victoria and I have been blessed with five wonderful children and seven beautiful grandchildren. Read More

… One day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise … but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:8,9)

My Bumper Sticker:   But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, Nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. (1 Corinthians 2:9)                                   HEAVEN & Those Who Want You To Go There!   (PDF)

Gary’s Gospel Card:   outside  /  inside (PDFs) 

“Conceived in her … of the Holy Ghost … a Son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS; for He shall save His people from their sin.” (Matthew 1:20-21) Hark! the Herald Angels Sing. God and Sinners Reconciled! Fix in Us Thy Humble Home. In each Believing Heart. (Christmas Hymn)

“Whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have Everlasting Life.” (John 3:16) “Our Father which art in Heaven … Thy Kingdom come … forgive us … as we forgive … deliver us from evil.”  (Matthew 6:9-13)

“In the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump … the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:52) “Peace, from Him which is, and which was, and which is to come … unto Him that loved us, and Washed Us From Our Sins In His Own Blood … Behold, He cometh with the clouds; and every eye shall see Him … even so, Amen.”   (Revelations 1:4-7) JESUS: “Come to Me … Take My Yoke … FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.”  (Matthew 11:28,29)

God the Father’s Son, the sinless Jesus shed His blood, suffering the penalty of death for all our sin. Jesus was buried and rose in victory, over sin and death. By believing in Jesus the hell bound sinner receives forgiveness, Jesus’ righteousness, everlasting life and is indwelt by God the Holy Spirit; sealed as God’s child and strengthened to love God and others like Jesus. Read God’s word, confess and turn from your sin, {use the keys of heaven to enter} put your faith in and give your life to Jesus. Love & good deeds glorify God – they do not earn salvation.
