I went to church for years and never heard about the devil. It's not fun talking about him, and I don't ever want to put too much focus on him. But the truth is, we have an enemy. First Peter 5:8 says, "…That enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour." It's important for us to believe in the power and authority we have in Christ over our enemy so we can have the great life God wants us to have.
