There Is No Secret Salvation

I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you in public and from house to house.
ACTS 20:20

There Is No Secret Salvation
Christ says and bears witness in clear words that everything necessary for salvation has been made known to us. For this is how He addresses those who are His in John 15:27: "The Spirit will bear witness to Me." And in John 16:13: "He will guide you into all the truth." Likewise in John 15:15: "All that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you." And in Acts 20:20, 27 Paul says: "You know that I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you in public and from house to house. I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God." With this very statement Paul teaches at the same time that all Scripture has been fulfilled.
