The Gospel Stated Clearly

1 Now I want to make clear for you [...] the gospel [...] 2 by which you are being saved, if you hold firmly to the message [...] 3 that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, 4 and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day according to the scriptures1 Corinthians 15:1-4

The Gospel is this: Christ died for our sins and was raised on the third day, all according to the scriptures. If you believe the Gospel, you're saved by it. There's nothing more to it.
