For Catholics the answer is Purgatory.

What is the answer for Protestants?

1 Corinthians 3:15
If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

It actually fits the complete Catholic doctrine very well.

Most of the time, Protestants focus on the after life concept of Purgatory. Not realizing that the Catholic Church considers our life of faith to be the Purgative Way.

If we don't attain perfection in the Purgative way of faith. Then we undergo Purgatory (or Hell, as the case may be).
