Our salvation is a gracious gift of God.  God gave us this gift when we accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. No one can take this gift from us.  It is irrevocable. You cannot earn your way into heaven. Works are not necessary. (see Ephesians 2:8-9 
Having said that, you will notice many Christians who spend a lot of time doing "works."  That is normal and natural byproduct of Christianity. The Holy Spirit residing in us moves us to do good works.  In fact it is difficult not to do good works, considering God prepared them
in advance for us to do (see Ephesians 2:10. We cannot earn salvation through works.

read James 2:14-24. In reading don't confuse justification with salvation.
