Going to church or believing in god will not get you to heaven alone.
God Jesus and Holy Spirit makes up the holy trinity, God in three-forms.
Yes if you do one thing, accept a free gift. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. Just say yes and mean it, tell others about your choice, then live it, and find a good BIBLE teaching Church. Read the BIBLE yourself and study.
A good site:

Yes, every living being has been granted everlasting life and a future with no more pain and sorrow. Going to church has nothing to do with salvation or heaven. When Jesus Christ died on the Cross he paid the debt of sin for us and in giving his life he has conquered death so that we his children would have life eternal with our Father in Paradise. All God requires of you is that you love Him and honor Him with all your heart. Seek and Ye Shall find my friend.

I guess Heaven is a type of haven, though I've never thought of it that way. There are a lot of ways to enjoy an enriched relationship with Jesus/God. Continuing a spiritual journey means to continually learn...so if not in church/charch..then read, find Christian music, a good radio or TV station.... Churches can provide fellowship and growth- but All of them have their faults because all men/women sin.
Wow, did I just write that? (I usually stay quiet on sex, polotics, and religious Q's) Huh...New Year :)

The third commandment of the Decalogue recalls the holiness of the sabbath: "The seventh day is a sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the LORD." Scripture also reveals in the Lord's day a memorial of Israel's liberation from bondage in Egypt: "You shall remember that you were a servant in the land of Egypt, and the LORD your God brought you out thence with mighty hand and outstretched arm; therefore the LORD your God commanded you to keep the sabbath day."
But I guess that is only if you really beLIEve in organized religion and the Ten Commandments bullshit. But if you do beLIEve, then yes, according to the Catholic Church you will go to hell if your ass is not in that pue every sunday. I did like one quote I found though, make's me think that man might have been up to somethin- "The sabbath brings everyday work to a halt and provides a respite. It is a day of protest against the servitude of work and the worship of money." Only if organized religion really beLIEved that.

To believe in God and the promises that he made for us to be in heaven, is a journey you have with him. The journey is a spiritual one , and to understand the nature of that journey is to be guided by the Holy books. His promises are not just related to Heaven , but here on earth too. Many people say " Oh but i have been good , i try to be kind to people etc " It again does not work like that you have to give your self to God to enable that journey, then understand why he wants you to be with people who believe in him and what he set out for you. You have to live in the life with God, but that does not mean to say that because you do not go to Church he has deserted you, because like the good shepherd that he is , he will always be watching over you until you make that commitment to him . Its his followers in faith that guide you into the right directions.

You will most certainly die, as do we all. You will most certainly not go to Heaven, there being no such place. Your belief or otherwise in God will affect neither of these outcomes, nor will your attendance or neglect of church.
I write as an atheist, hedonist and logician. Others, who disapprove of atheism, hedonism and especially logic will tell you otherwise.
It's your call.

People who go to church merely express their own needs to go to church and a place for prayer and worship. I would go with @zorro's most definite yes. As long as you believe in God, let him be the judge of that, and he will most surely show you whether he wants you in church or not. By the way, nowadays, prayer groups are in homes of people, no longer only in church. So if you find it more interesting to go to a prayer group, do so :). Freedom of choice, the choice is yours :).

Being good or going to church will not get you to Heaven. Believing that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you will get you to Heaven because it will be the begining of a special relationship with Jesus/God and the begining of you realizing that you are a sinner but can ask for forgiveness of those sins making you perfect as Christ is!

You are in Heaven now, the odd sensation of not being in Heaven but on a tiny little blue ball far out in space is an illusion that is held in place by the collective choice of millions of other beings like you who have agreed that this is a world far-far away from Heaven. So, in a way, we made this world what it is and keep it going by the forces of our collective beliefs and denials. You are safe here to experience as you will, life amid this great folly.

Oh my.....The answer is not complicated at all!!! First off, you dont 'have' to go to a church, but look at church as a school to learn about god. How can you believe in something if you have not been schooled in it. 2nd, you have to more than believe in god.....you have to accept jesus christ as your lord and savior into your heart.
so to think that you can do nothing and get into heaven is very very wrong. the path to heaven is very narrow.
Romans 8-1 says it well. There is therefor now no condemnation to them which are in Jesus christ, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit.
sounds difficult to understand, but what jesus said is, those who follow him shall have eternal life......PERIOD!!!!!! find a fun church to try out. I had to try atleast 20 before i found the one i love and has a rockin band and worshop team and the pasture is funny to boot
Id rather live my whole life as if there was a god and find out there wasnt, then life my whole life as if there wasnt a god, and find out there was!
