Simple, we are saved (i.e. get to go to Heaven) fully through the grace of God. Our only part in this is to accept the gift He is offering. The works we do have nothing to do with salvation. By the way, this includes baptism to whoever it was who said baptism is a requirement for salvation. Rather, our works are a response to receiving His gift.
