A question about ‘could’.

A question about ‘could’.
If one use the word 'could' in a sentence, it means this sentence is a past tense sentence, right? Therefore, should I use past tense in every sentence I will write of this paragraph or the whole passage?
Thanks for answering my question.

    'could' not only use for mention past story, it's use for indicate CHANCES.
    eg: 1) i could be there - PAST
    2) I could be there tomorrow - chance, may be
