When did the Church (Body of Christ) begin?

Is there more than one Gospel in Scripture?

Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand..healing every sickness and every disease..raise the dead, cast out devils

The gospel of the grace of God; The gospel of God; the gospel of Christ; "my" gospel; the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery; Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, He was buried, He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.

Repent + Be Baptized = Remission of Sins & Ye Shall Receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost

Heard the Gospel + Trusted = Sealed with the Holy Spirit

Is Paul one of the 12 apostles, or are his ministry and message distinct and unique?
