I think that all good people have similar goals. In my religion - Judaism - there are, broadly speaking, two major reasons for being and doing good. One is for the greater good of humankind here on Earth, the second is for some reward in the afterlife. Since belief in an afterlife is essential in traditional Christianity, but not in traditional Judaism, I would say that each has a somewhat different focus. We may be taking different routes, but we get to the same place.
As far as leading a life in the imitation of Christ, there is a paradox in Christian theology. If you think of Jesus Christ as God, then you can never hope to equal his goodness, you can only strive to go in that direction. But if you consider Jesus as human, then it is possible (maybe) to equal his goodness. Speaking as an outsider I think that may be a more daunting task. The first asks only that you travel in the right direction, whereas the second implies arriving at the same destination.
As far as my personal viewpoint, I don't care what a person believes. I care about how the person behaves.
Please don't send me anything about how my beliefs will damn me to hell. Fortunately, that is up to God and not to you.
