People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally connected to God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. Christ will return one day to take his followers to heaven.
