  Most of the "Start-up" instructions for the Pine say that you should be connected to the internet.
Is this absolutely necessary?
  I'm asking because I do not have internet access at home,(where I would be starting up my Pine64).


Most of the operating systems can, largely speaking, be used without an internet connection. You will need an internet connection to download the images required for burning to microSD card to run on the Pine in the first instance. And obviously, to get new programs and apps, you will need to connect to the internet in order to download them. Also, to carry out updates will require an internet connection. 

To which start up instructions are you referring?

To none in particular. It seems like I remembered reading it somewhere.

I have already downloaded the img file I plan on using.(From work,(after I clocked out, of course))
I'm trying to get everything I need online DL to a USB drive to take home. So at home I'll have everything I need, i.e. the img burning program, etc.
