The concept of the God itself is not so elucidated. Whether you believe in him or not all up to you.

Some people think that God is everything while some believe that the concept of God is useless. Still believing in the God can push us to keep on doing the right things, even if heaven is the motivation. All we need to get is that the thing behind Gods is for us to make right decisions and make everyone around us happy. The faith in something can lead to its success. So even if you believe in him, we should not be entirely dependent on the God, but we should try our best to make things good for ourselves.
