Yes it matters what a person believes.

The Bible says that everybody is a sinner (Romans 3:23) and no matter how nicely you try to live, you cannot clean yourself and make yourself ready for heaven.

That is why Jesus Christ came to earth as a man, lived here and didnīt sin (not even once), suffered and let himself to be killed for us, died, went to hell, rose from the dead on third day and went to heaven as a forerunner. So He made it possible for us to get saved to heaven too. Without His sacrifice every human being in all times would be lost and doomed to hell for ever after his/her death.

But now those persons, who from their hearts confess their sins, decide to believe that Jesus suffered the penalty on their behalf, and give their life to Jesus Christ, will be born again. That is: Jesus will make their spirit alive and the Holy Spirit will come and live in them. And if they follow Jesus the rest of their life, they will after their death live with God in heaven for ever.

So you have to become a new creature (2 Cr 5:17), if you want to get to heaven. Jesus is the only way to heaven (John 14:6).
