It means that different denominations won’t really matter in Heaven, and those who label themselves as “Christian” or associate themselves with a particular Christian denomination but haven’t been saved and given themselves to what they believe (it’s only a name tag for them) will realize that reality in Hell.
This is of course my interpretation of it. I agree with it though.
I don’t know why people on this site rail on signs like this.

    I don’t like the sign because I find it presumptuous for someone else to tell me I do or do not have a real relationship with Christ. If I label myself a Christian, isn’t that enough?

      I find it wrong for someone to judge whether you have a real relationship with Christ as well (we agree on that). However, if they are not living according to scripture (God’s word judges them) and only using Jesus or Christianity (in the by-chance it’s correct) as a ticket away from Hell (for many it is not so much looking forward to Heaven, but escaping Hell, which is wrong IMO).

      So this sign isn’t judging people, it’s saying if Christianity is only a label for you, that is not enough, Jesus demands more from you, to be filled with the Spirit of God and live out what Jesus commanded.

      For the record I do believe in eternal security, and believe that no amount of works or actions can get one to Heaven or Hell (except that of repenting of your sin and placing your faith completely in Jesus Christ to save you). However, the Bible, God’s Word, says that “We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. 4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. 5 But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.” 1 John chapter 2
      So if we claim that we know Him and yet disregard his Word and commands I would be doubtful of the sincerity of that one’s faith and salvation.
      So people judging others according to one’s own standard is wrong, but if someone is evaluating someone according to what the Bible says, I would hard pressed to fault him. For 2 Tim 3:16 says “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness”.

    I thought the whole point of Church Sign of the Day was to “rail” on signs like this.

… and I keep thinking that the other side of the sign says something like, “…but Tammy Faye’s eyelashes are forever!” or “…but must be scraped off with fingernails and spit in Purgatory.”

I live about a mile away from this church. Their motto: Home of the old time religion. Not making it up. Some great themes of their sermons (I’ve listened to a few): Jesus drank Welch’s, don’t let me ever hear you say you’re doing Kingdom ministry, there’s simply no good reason to switch from the Most Holy KJV, Muslims are evil, everybody else does it wrong, and why our bus ministry kicks a. The pastor’s monotone voice and weird cadence make me wonder who would sit there and listen every Sunday.

    I think I have a new title for a future book.

    >>Jesus drank Welch’s

    “Oh, there goes Father, drunk on the wine.”
    “The communal wine just proves too tempting for some of them!”
    “Well, that’s why we Lutherans use grape Kool-Aid for the blood of Christ.”
