So you could claim to be a Quaker, do not attend church and even believe there are no gods as an atheist justified as a different journey through life, but on the death bed become a believer just to deliver on your commitment to Quakerism and God?

The simple answer is no.
Quakers don’t go to church.
The possibility of an afterlife is in the realm of speculation and is not worthy of consideration.
Become a “believer” in what exactly? Quakerism isn’t about belief. It’s about practice. Quakers aren’t so much believers as practitioners. One becomes a Quaker by convincement, not by way of conversion. There is nothing intrinsically different between a Quaker and anyone else.
To put it as simply as I can, there is no “right” belief. Quakers are a community of shared values and practice, not a community of shared beliefs.
