All of our works or goodness is as filthy rags. Christ's Blood alone is accepted as a covering for our sin. When God looks upon those who accept this, He sees Christ, without this we are naked and covered in sin, unacceptable.
Good works should be evident in a Christians life, but it does not save us, only Jesus can do that.
I'll just add to that with John 14:6 Jesus said....."I am the way, the truth, and the life; No man cometh unto the Father, but by me" Be he Catholic, Protestant, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, etc., etc.
