What is salvation?

From Luke 1:67-75:

Now [John's] father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied, saying:

Blessed is the Lord God of Israel, for He has visited and redeemed His people, and raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David...that we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us, to perform the mercy to our fathers and to remember His holy covenant--the oath that He swore to our father Abraham: to grant us that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life.

Wait, Zacharias! What about going to heaven when we die?
