Not necessarily, on lots of fronts. A god could relate to their organized religion as a US president to the armed forces (able to give orders to the hierarchy but not actually within it) or even as a celebrity to their fan club.

Some fantasy gods do directly head up their personal religions, but I'd say they're a pretty small minority.
I don't know any 3e, so there is no chance that I am talking about 3e rules by accident.
