No, that's what they want you to believe.
If you really looked closely, God never even intended for church to be as it is today. In the Bible, it never mentions a building, a pastor, or even tithing (in the New Testament). Rather the Church was meant to be the people, not a building, and everybody was supposed to be actively involved sharing thoughts and questions with each other, not a whole bunch of people listening to one guy spew Bible quotes over and over. Albeit, some churches nowadays I'm sure are okay in God eyes but most have their own views and ideas about Christianity which are twisted from the truth so they are most convenient to them. This is why I think there is so much separation among 'believers' today because the people who run the institutional church do it there own way and not Gods way. Why do you think Christianity is so repulsive and unappealing to non-believers today? Wasn't Gods original plan for Christians to be all on the same page?
If this interests you, try reading the book Pagan Christianity, it talks about how lots of traditions and beliefs of the modern church are not from God, but from man.
So don't follow the church, but rather trust in the Bible
