How do we come into a relationship with God? What does that mean, and how does one go about that? How does somebody get to heaven?

If a baby is born but to parents of a non christian religion, do they go to hell if they die young?

As far as we know, no. The Scripture teaches that anyone who is not capable of making a deliberate, reasoned decision is not held accountable like other people.

Dt. 1.37-40: God's people are being judged for their rebellion, but the young ones who didn't have the mental capacity to make a reasoned and moral decision like that don't get judged.

Number 14.29 speaks of a kind of "age of accountability," just as Dt. 1.37-40 did.

Isa. 7.15. People can be too young mentally to know enough to reject the wrong and choose the right.

These verses would suggest that any baby that dies would not go to hell.
