Romans 1:16-17

In this gospel I glory. It is the power of God providing salvation for everyone who has faith, Jew and Greek alike. There is revealed in it a righteousness that is of God, created by faith, realized in faith, precisely as the scripture expresses it, "But the righteous as possessed with faith shall live."

First Corinthians 15:1-8

I next acquaint you, brothers, with what the gospel is that I once imparted to you, which you also received, to which you also adhere, which is also the means whereby you are saved in the long run, if you realize in what intention I imparted it to you, — unless your faith was make-believe from the first.
I delivered to you in chief that which had also been delivered to me, that Christ died for our sins as the Scriptures had said, and that he was buried, and that on the third day as the Scriptures had said he was risen, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the Twelve; after that he appeared to more that five hundred disciples at the one time, most of whom are still alive, though a few are dead; after that he appeared to James, then to the Apostles in a body; and last of all as to one whose life as an apostle began in was almost a supersession of nature, he appeared to me also.
