    Romans 1:1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,

    1:2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)

    1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

    1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

    The gospel of God is the progressive revelation of God reconcilling mankind to himself through the Lord Jesus Christ. The prophets promised this salvation throughout scripture begininng at the promised seed in Genesis 3:15.

    Jesus revealed unto Paul mysteries that were not made known by the prophets in the holy scriptures and were hid in God (Ephesians 3:9). Made known through Paul was the full salvation by the cross to freely justify all men (Romans 5:18).

    Paul preached Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery and also by the scriptures of the prophets (Romans 16:25-26).

    Paul by the gospel of God declared Jesus as the Son of God by his resurrection and so make him known.

    "The Gospel of God" is just one of several ways that the Gospel (Good News) is described or designated in the New Testament. When the emphasis is on God (the Father) then we know that it was by His grace and mercy that the Gospel came into existence. When the emphasis is on Christ then we know that it was through His finished work of redemption that God could offer grace and mercy to sinners. But there are several other designations also.

    so there's no emphasis on the Spirit, the Holy Spirit?

    It is the Holy Spirit Himself who makes sure that the focus is always on the Savior when the Gospel is preached.

    It is only by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and receiving Him as Lord and Savior that sinners are saved. But the Holy Spirit does have a critical role in conversion and salvation. And it is the Holy Spirit who also ensures that believers are baptized in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

    if I read you correctly, you're saying that there is only one Gospel, but with emphasis on 3 persons, correct.
