Since There Is A Creation, There Is A Creator
In Romans chapter 1 God says everyone knows He exists because they can see the creation, but some people suppress that knowledge.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools. - Romans 1:18-22
God Makes It Very Simple
God says that we all know He exists because: it is evident to us, because for God has made evident. How does He do that? We can clearly see, and understand there is a God, through seeing what God has created.
The principle is... if we see a painting, we know there is a painter. If we see a building, we know there is a builder. It's called the law of causality. If something has a beginning, it has a cause. We see the creation, we know there is a creator... God is real. And we have no excuse for denying Him.
So, if the law of causality says that everything that exists has a cause, who created God? Aha... be careful. That's not what the Law of Causality says. The Law of Causality says that everything that has a beginning has a cause. Everything in the universe has a beginning. That means it all has a cause. God does not have a beginning. As the cause that created time, God exists outside of time and is thus without a beginning. He is the uncaused cause.

THE GOOD NEWS
Before you get the good news, you need to know the bad news. It's about you. God says:
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23
Sin means disobeying God, aka breaking God's law. God is perfect and perfection is required to enter heaven. It's a standard none of us can achieve. We all fall short. For example, compare yourself with just one of the Ten Commandments. Have you ever told a lie?
All liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. - Revelation 21:8. Or what about:
Have you ever taken something that does not belong to you, no matter how small? Have you ever looked at another person with lust? In Matthew 5 Jesus said:
Everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.' Have you done that?
You have broken God's laws. You have sinned. There must be justice, and that means eternity in hell, the lake of fire, the second death. Unless...
Unless there was someone willing to pay that penalty on your behalf. Someone who will take on themselves the consequences you deserve. And there is. There is one person who can and will do that. That person is Jesus Christ. If you trust this is true (believe), and repent (turn away from disobeying God), Jesus' death is applied to your account and you are freed from the penalty of sin to be with God forever.
