What is the Gospel? It is the message of Hope for what Jesus Christ has done for everyone on the Cross.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 - For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
Why Jesus needed to fulfill the Gospel? Because of Adam's sin against God, which sentenced everyone to death. All that were born after him. But God's love was revealed in the person of Jesus Christ to give hope to mankind.
Romans 5:12 - Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.

Romans 5:8 - But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
And what is the payment for sin? Death! But God's gift is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Who paid for our Sins? Christ himself.
Mathew 1:21 - And she (Mary) shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

2 Corinthians 5:21 - For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
How do we obtain Salvation or Eternal Life? We believe in Christ that He alone can save us and we confess our sins to Him.
Romans 10:9 - That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

John 3:36
 - He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

John 6:47 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
It is our FAITH in Jesus that will bring us to Heaven. And FAITH produces Good Works by the workings of the Holy Spirit. So FAITH is all that we need.
Ephesians 2:8-9 - For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Galatians 2:16 - Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
Concrete example of Salvation by Faith. Remember the Thieves with Jesus in Calvary? One insulted Jesus and the other believed that Jesus is LORD and surrendered himself to Jesus Christ. He got saved last minute! 

That man didn't have enough time left to do good works to pay for what he had done wrong. But he went to Heaven through his Faith in Jesus Christ.
Luke 23:39-43 - And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.
How do we worship God?

John 4:24 - God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Note: We don't need an image of God to worship God. God hates images and idols, so we would contradict to the Biblical teachings if we ought to have an image of God to worship Him as God is a Spirit. And we worship God through our Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6)

Is the Burning HELL for real? Yes it is!
Luke 16:24-25 -  - And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame (Find HERE the full story of The Rich Man and Lazarus).

Revelation 20:15
 - And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:10
 - And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

And just how great is the Holy Bible?

The Bible accounts the beginning, the present and the future of time. It revealed and fulfilled the many things to come including the coming of Jesus Christ and the signs of the end times which we are seeing vividly today. It also tells us what to expect in the future. The Bible has already revealed historical and scientifical information which our current science only managed to discover lately. The Bible accounted the life of Jesus, His works and His death, burial and resurrection. It was witnessed and written by His apostles and disciples, even witnessed by thousands. The Bible is the only Book that can change life permanently and can give life eternally through Faith in Jesus Christ.

The Bible has no contradictions despite the Old Testament and the New Testament were written hundreds of years apart. Even if it was translated by different scholars having no knowledge of what the other books the rest of the scholars were translating. The Bible is a Divine and Holy Book which is the standard for moral, spiritual and godly living. There’s not a book, no not one, that would contain even just 1 percent of what the Bible has. The Bible is the Word of God where even after the existence of the heaven and the earth, the Word of God will remain...
Mark 13:31 - Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

So what's next?

Grow in the knowledge of God. How do you do it? Read the Bible and find a church that truly teaches God's Word. Fundamental Baptist Church will be the best place for you to grow in the Word of God mightily. 

Romans 10:17 - So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Your next focus after you have gained deep understanding of the Word of God is to share it with your family, friends and workmates. Hence fulfilling the Great Commission.

Matthew 28:19-20 - Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
And for those who will be ashamed of sharing things about Jesus and His Words, read this.
Mark 8:38 - Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
Remember, Jesus doesn't need us. It's us who need Him. If we keep on rejecting Him, He might just harden our hearts for good leaving us hopeless of His most precious Gift, which is Eternal Life in Heaven. 
Deuteronomy 2:30 - But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as appeareth this day.
