Certain teachings hold particular significance in today's world, especially with regard to the soon return of Jesus Christ.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ. "And there salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

"Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures," 1 Corinthians 15:1-4
