Hello, and welcome to the website! The Keys of Heaven Ministries was founded by Gary Westgerdes, located in Celina, Ohio.  

"As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us."  (Psalm 103:12)

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 57th year as a Child of God the summer of 2020. View my testimony to hear more.

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

The 3 Keys
The differences: CHRISTIANITY vs CATHOLICISM check out: www.diffen.com/difference/Catholicism_vs_Christianity which seems to be biased towards Catholicism. Then check out my website and book: "We Agree! The Tomb Is Open, CHRISTIANITY vs CATHOLICISM" by Gary Westgerdes, it is biased towards Christianity, Biblical Christianity.My book compares Catholic teachings with the scriptures and will confirm the major Biblical doctrinal positions of the Christian faith, the scriptures shared will strengthen your knowledge of why and how believers have assurance of their salvation and the gift of everlasting life. Some simple comparisons:Catholicism - Jesus's death & resurrection opened the doors of heaven (CCC-1026). Now the Catholic Church will guide you to heaven. The Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. “In the forgiveness of sin both PRIESTS and SACRAMENTS are instruments which our Lord Jesus Christ—wills to use in order to efface our sins and give us the grace of justification” (CCC-976-987). “The LITURGY is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; it is also the font from which all her power flows” (CCC-1070-74, 1069). Christianity - Jesus is the door to heaven believing in the Keys of Heaven, Jesus's death, burial and resurrection, for the forgiveness of your sins will result in receiving the gift of everlasting life, "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" (John 3:16). "But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Galatians 6:14). Christians do not glory in the Mass, Eucharist, or Sacraments.Catholicism - Celebrates the Mass, the Eucharistic sacrifice for sin, through her Priesthood acting in place of Christ (CCC-1327).Christianity - By God’s grace you have been saved through faith, sacramental grace is not necessary. “For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.” (Heb. 10:14)The Mass, a re-offering of the sacrifice of the Cross in an un-bloody manner, is not necessary. “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands—Nor yet that he should offer himself often—For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. (Heb. 9:24–26)The Catholic Priesthood is not necessary. The Christian Priesthood is a spiritual Priesthood.PETER, “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.” (1 Pet. 2:5) PAUL, “Let us offer the Sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. But to do good and to communicate (be giving) forget not: for with such Sacrifices God is well pleased.” (Heb. 13:14–16)A FACEBOOK POST: TIM STAPLES • 1/14/2022“Even if nothing else was said in Scripture implying infant baptism, we could conclude it to be necessary just from this simple fact: “Babies need to have original sin removed from their souls. But there is more.”Revolt Against Reality by Gary Michuta“St. Paul, being a Jew, as well as all of the apostles, understood the idea that true religion is a family affair. A Jew became a Jew when he was circumcised on the eighth day after his birth. “They did not have to first ‘accept Moses as their personal prophet’ before they could be circumcised.” [GW—Ha, Ha, funny! However, Christians teach that a sinner who is of age, knowing right from wrong, upon hearing God’s word and conviction from the Holy Spirit must first, “accept Jesus as their personal Saviour,” using their own free will. Simultaneously with faith and accepting Jesus, comes the reception of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is called being born again. Included in being born again, is the joy, the lifting away of the burden of sin and guilt. This Salvation is followed by believer’s water baptism, and unlike Catholic baptism it is not necessary for salvation.]GARY WESTGERDESTrue (Pure) religion, and undefiled is to, “Visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” (James 1:27). Believer’s baptism proclaims Jesus’s death, burial and resurrection. Paul did not preach baptism. Paul, “For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the CROSS of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God—it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe — WE PREACH CHRIST CRUCIFIED” (1 Cor. 1:17–18, 21, 23). Not Christ Consumed.WESTGERDES—Concerning circumcision. God rebuked the Jews, he wanted them to have their hearts circumcised and in the same sense now in “Christendom” baptism of the flesh means nothing if it is not backed up with faith. The only baptism that is going to Cleanse away your sin is the Holy Spirit’s. He is the one that knows your faith in Jesus and your heart’s desire for forgiveness and cleansing, he knows if you really mean it.

“Dear Friend … How long since you last met a killer? Give me three minutes and I’ll introduce you.” “His name is Sivini, and for years, hatred was his business. Hatred is a commodity among the tribes of Papua New Guinea (PNG). One tribe attacks another; people die. Then the other tribe seeks revenge. Sivini was in charge of revenge. Among the Usarufa people, in the eastern highlands of PNG, he was the legendary fight commander from the village of Moife. Time and time again, he led his team into neighboring areas to carry out revenge killings.” “You’ve probably never met a man with so much blood on his hands. Somehow, in his many years of fighting, he escaped the slightest injury. His people, young and old, revered him for his almost magical longevity. “But today we know God wasn’t sparing Sivini for the sake of more dying … He was sparing Sivini for a whole new life — life, and more abundantly — an extraordinary new assignment — that would bring the life-giving Word of God to the Usarufa people and beyond, it happened like this. The people of Moife grow wheat; for decades they have threshed their wheat by hand. A threshing machine would speed things up. So Sivini traveled from Moife to the city of Ukarumpa to arrange transport of the new contraption. But Ukarumpa is also a major Bible translation hub — with 275 translators working out of this center to meet needs throughout the country … one of the biggest operations of its kind in the world. By God’s perfect timing, a Translators’ Training Course (TTC) was under way that same day. With such urgent demand among the people of PNG for the Scriptures in their many languages, every course is filled to capacity. But at the last minute, one man learned he would be unable to attend; someone would have to go in his place. A friend of Sivini’s knew he was in town — grabbed him — told him he could get in — it would be interesting, he promised — and a blood-thirsty tribal leader found himself learning how to translate the Bible into Usarufa! “Then, as the group made their way through the tragedy of Cain murdering Abel, translating Genesis 4, “Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time, it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: (Abel offered the innocent life and blood of the lamb) But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. (Cain offered a bloodless sacrifice without a death.) And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy. hand.” (Gen. 4:2–11)Sivini was stunned. ‘Abel’s blood calling out to God from the ground,’ he remembers — 'the words pierced my heart.’ He could almost hear the blood of his many victims calling out to God from the earth where he had so brutally slain them. In that defining moment, Sivini began to feel something he had never felt before: the possibility of cleansing. “The very next Sunday, he walked to the front of the local Christian church to publicly repent of his past. He asked for prayer — he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ — and in that moment, the God of forgiveness and peace lifted Sivini’s burden of guilt. “Everything about Sivini is different now. Hatred has turned to love, by the miraculous power of God’s Word! ‘Even my looks have changed since I accepted Jesus, Sivini says joyfully, ‘because now I no longer carry the weight of the guilt of my past. Who but Jesus could do such a wonderful thing?’ “Today Sivini is committed to the Usarufa Bible translation, ‘turning God’s talk into the Usarufa language so that my people can know the Lord. I want them to find peace, freedom, and forgiveness of sin, just like I have.’” --Wycliffe Associates every verse, every tongue, every task. (Solicitation letter 2008) “You’ve probably never met a man with so much blood on his hands. Somehow, in his many years of fighting, he escaped the slightest injury. His people, young and old, revered him for his almost magical longevity. “But today we know God wasn’t sparing Sivini for the sake of more dying … He was sparing Sivini for a whole new life — life, and more abundantly — an extraordinary new assignment — that would bring the life-giving Word of God to the Usarufa people and beyond, it happened like this.

Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” (Rom. 5: 8–9) “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God—the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.” (Rom. 3:24–26)Looking unto Jesusthe author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the CROSS, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Heb. 12:2)Gary’s website and linked online book are translatable from English into 104 languages.

An update of my book was completed May 2021. The front and back covers were edited to better reflect the purpose and content of the book. A Topical Index was added to aid in searching for specific areas of interest. A Christian testimony was added concerning Sivini who formerly carried out revenge killings. A P. S. was added at the end of chapter 15 concerning Jesus's 2nd Coming.The book is available on Buxton Village Books, Book Depository, Barnes & Noble, and the publisher Xulon Press. The hardback is selling for 35.99 and the paperback for 24.99. That sounds high to even me but Catholic books on doctrine are selling for a similar cost, a three pack of teenage books are selling for $30. A 20-40 book series from Catholic Answers on apologetics are going for $2 a piece marked down from 3.95, that is $40+.

Dear Gary,

     Thank you for the teaching on salvation. To answer the question “if tonight God asked you: Why should I let you into heaven? Why Should I give you eternal life” … the only way is through Jesus Christ and what He has done for me!! Praise God!!

     Thanks for your mail evangelism. What a good idea! I will pass the brochure along to others.

Dear Gary,

     Thank you so much for your kind words and inspirational correspondence. Yes, I find all of the literature very helpful. Although I won’t be deploying back to Iraq with my unit due to my retirement, I’ve taken the liberty of duplicating the information and passing it out to my comrades who are deploying. If there is one thing that helped me through some very rough and trying times, while I was deployed in Iraq, was the assurance that God was with me always … watching over me and my soldiers.

     Well, Gary, I guess I’ll sign off for now. Again, thank you for your letter and literature. I hope to meet you upon my return home.

Dear Gary,

    Thank you for the scripture pamphlets you sent me while I was in Iraq. I am amazed at how many letters I and others in my platoon have gotten from people who don’t even know us personally. It’s really great to know about all the support and prayers from back home.

     Thank you for keeping us in your prayers and for all of your support.

Dear Gary.

     How are you doing? I’m doing great, well as great as the desert allows. It’s a different kind of living, but we are getting by rather well. Thank you for the literature you’ve been sending, it is very enlightening. Sorry for the long time before responding, we are really busy. Hopefully, we will be home soon. See you soon. Thanks again.

Hello Gary,

     I wanted to thank you for the note of thanks you sent my husband J. S. It was very thoughtful and touched our hearts greatly.

     We have been retired from the U.S. Navy for 3 ½ years. We were involved during the Gulf War.

     Your support and letters do so much for so many in need.

     Thanks for the tracts you sent. I put them in my bible and perhaps I’ll be able to pass them on to someone else.

     Many thanks again for your prayers and support for all our service men and women.

... 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)
