Do those with other beliefs go to Hell?


Do people who believe differently than Christians, or a subset thereof, automatically go to Hell? This may seem like a relatively straightforward question, but it actually needs to be broken down into two parts. First, can unrepentant heretics and/or non-Christians go to Heaven based on good works alone? Second, if works alone cannot save, are people thrown into the lake of fire without any other consideration?
