If you follow "the way", you are one with God.
It has been said that God is the way, the truth, & the underlying principles of all things.
The need to believe into something isn't the the main subject of Tao, you as a person is a fragment of Tao. Tao is there already from the very beginning of all consciousness.
The questioning mind which decipher as to which is true & which false is another layer of illusion of the mind.
If you achieve enlightenment, even a single word expressed here is too much already, for an awaken soul is free from illusion of the mind.
