Saint Cornelius the Centurion (First Century)

He was baptized by Saint Peter the Apostle, as we are told in the Acts of the Apostles, Chapter 10.  He was later made Bishop of Caesarea in Palestine.  He was a Gentile, and his Baptism is commemorated in Holy Scripture because it is the clear message of the Bible that the Faith was to go to the Gentiles by way of preservation to the end of the world.
