The Gospel is Not A General Belief in Heaven or Hell, nor a Hope for a Better Life

The gospel itself is not a general belief in heaven and hell or hope for a better life beyond; it is not even confidence in a resurrection at the end of the age.  It is the announcement that Jesus Christ himself is our life, for he is our peace with God.  He does not merely show us the way; he is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6).
