In the case of atoms there are two forces to consider (gravity and the weak nuclear force are negligible in magnitude) - The Strong Nuclear force and the Electrostatic force. It is the Strong Nuclear force that keeps the various protons together and as  a result we have the atom and the same is responsible for the holding together more than one atom.
