The Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ is the heart and core and center of revealed religion.

Elder Bruce R. McConkie Christ and the Creation

Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.

Behold the wounds which pierced my side, and also the prints of the nails in my hands and feet; be faithful, keep my commandments, and ye shall inherit the kingdom of heaven.

Doctrine and Covenants 6:36-37

Note how our ability to look to Christ and banish doubt and fear is connected to the Atonement.  The reason we can be completely confident in Christ is because we know that he has atoned for our sins and our weaknesses.
