Answer ; You do not need to tell anyone about your past but you do need to acknowledge it before God and be sorry (repent) for doing what you now recognise as wrong. No one in a church has ever lived a blame free life, we all make mistakes and do things that God would not like ( SIN is the technical term) no one here can judge anyone else or would, we are just grateful that Jesus paid the price for our sin when He died on the cross. When you accept Jesus into your life and put your trust in Him your past is put away , you are a new creation.... so come on in! 

Read in John chapter 8 verses 1 to 12:

But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

2 Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned.But what do You say?” 6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.

7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”

11 She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

Read in Hebrews chapter 8 verse 12 : "For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more."

And for that we as believers are so very grateful.
