The most important thing is how we live our lives, not what church we belong to.  We are children of God and our status in the future is left up to God.
Pre-Existence of Man
Most do not believe in an existence before birth, but there may be some that do.  This is a matter that is left up to the individual, and is not a matter of concern for the church.
