Do Christians believe that followers of other religions are doomed?

Some do, but others don’t. Christianity consists of people who disagree diametrically on many subjects. Some take the Bible so literally that they include in God’s plan only a small minority of the world’s population. Other Christians, however, view Christ in a larger perspective and emphasize inclusion rather than exclusion. God is a God of love, and those who live in love know God. That is the emphasis of the First Epistle of John, “Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God” (I John 4:7). I believe that Christ came to reveal to us a God who cares for all people. He constantly broke boundaries and found faith in unexpected places. In a Roman Centurion, he discovered a faith greater than any among his own people (Luke 7:1-10). In John’s Gospel Jesus said, ” I have other sheep which are not of this fold…” (John 10:16).>>More http://explorefaith.org/religions.html
