Anyone else believe in God but not go to church?

I believe in God but I worship him on my own, I've never found a church that really worked for me. I believe in Jesus and his basic message but I feel like modern Christians use it to justify hate and oppression. Am I alone? I feel like people here are either atheists or bible thumpers, no in between.

Me too. I don't like most organized religions.

Sure, the billions of us in the world who believe in God but aren't Christians.

 A belief in God does not mean you have to attend a Church, or be a Christian or any other religion for that matter. A belief in God and a belief in a religion aren't the same things to me.

That's EXACTLY how I feel. I feel like churches distort God's message of love and turn it into this hateful social club.

I'm asking because I had someone tell me I was "rejecting fellowship" and this was a sin.
