Uh, yeah, you do.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
I don't believe you have to go to church, but through regular prayer and belief (walking the walk, as I said), you will be saved.

Somewhere in the Bible is the following quote;

Quote:
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
MEANING:

Quote:
"You see that a person is justified by what he does and NOT BY FAITH ALONE."
