"Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you THE GOSPEL which I PREACHED unto you, which also YE HAVE RECEIVED, and wherein YE STAND, by which also YE ARE SAVED, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 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."
1 Cor. 15:1-4.
This is the gospel that saves. It is found in 1 Corinthians. Not in Matthew, Mark, Luke or John.
As far as the four gospels of Matt. Mark, Luke and John, they are a record of Christ's earthly ministry. "But he answered her and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel." And, Jesus commanded the twelve to "go NOT into the way of the Gentiles" Matt. 10:5. Now He said these things for a reason. How do you answer this?

And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name John 20:30-31
