Yes, they can!

First we must understand what being saved means. Everyone on earth has sinned (done wrong things) at one time or another (Romans 3:23). The Bible tells us that sin has consequences and that all sin must be punished by death (Romans 6:23). The death the Bible is talking about is not just our bodies dying, but an eternal separation from a loving God. Eternity is forever and forever with no end. When people die, they will end up in either one of two places—heaven or hell.

So in order to avoid an everlasting separation from God, we need to be rescued from our own sins. Thankfully, God thought of this and solved the problem. So God sent Jesus, His one and only Son, to earth to die for sin (John 3:16). Because He did this, anyone who understands the sacrifice Jesus made on their behalf and makes the choice to follow Jesus with all their heart mind and soul, believing that He died for them and rose from the dead, will be saved and allowed to enter heaven when they die.

Because of this, we can know for certain that anyone can be saved if they believe in Jesus and are willing to turn from their sins and do whatever Jesus asks them to do. Only Jesus can provide salvation! There is no other name in all of heaven for people to call on to save them (Acts 4:12).

If you have not believed in Jesus for salvation, you can read more about that here. God wants every person to come to Him. All people have to do is accept His gift of salvation through Jesus!
