The Catholic Church was commissioned by Christ and sent by Christ to go to all the nations.
Ephesians 2:19-21 states, "So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone. Through him the whole structure is held together and grows into a temple sacred in the Lord".
Mankind is not bound by those who come up with new gospels and new denominations, we are bound by the Faith of the Apostles. Jesus promised His Church that the gates of hell will not prevail against it, that he would be with his Church forever until he returns. He promised the gift of the Holy Spirit and he made good that promise on Pentecost (Acts 2:1-47).
The Pope is the Lords "Royal Stewart", his "Prime Minister", "Chief Stewart" (Matthew 16:13-20, John 21:15-23) as he is entrusted with the "Deposit of Faith".
