To express future: 
                         Going to 
1) For plans and intentions made before the moment they were spoken.
Example: I am going to accept the job!

2) To make predications that are very likely to be true.
Example: Look at those clouds, it is going to rain!

3) Use it as a general verb form for the future, especially in spoken English.
Example: What time are you going to visit grandma?
