Gregg,Mat 7:21-23 Many people call Him Lord, but do not believe in Him. The will of the Father is not to know about the Person of Jesus, but to believe in Him. "And this is the will of the Father sending Me, that of all that He has given Me, I shall not lose any of it, but shall raise it up in the last day." (John 6:39).
But we have this message from 1 Timothy 1:18-20,
18This charge I entrust to you, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies previously made about you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, 19holding faith and a good conscience. By rejecting this, some have made shipwreck of their faith, 20among whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme (ESV).
We have biblical evidence of those who 'made shipwreck of their faith' and of those who committed apostasy for whom there was no further repentance possible (Hebrews 6:4-6).
