- About the
Foursquare Church -
The Foursquare Church exists to glorify God and advance His kingdom.
Jesus Christ's command is to preach the gospel and make disciples of all
nations (Mark 16:15; Matthew 28:19). Therefore, we are "Dedicated
unto the cause of inter-denominational and worldwide evangelism."*
These words express our spirit and our focus.
Our call is to preach Jesus Christ, God's Son, as the Savior, Healer,
Baptizer with the Holy Spirit and coming King. Our assignment is to
develop healthy, growing churches. Our commitment is to plant national
churches around the world led by loving servants of Jesus Christ. Churches
developed in this manner will reproduce again and again. This makes
possible the spread of the gospel to those who have not heard or accepted
the message of God's Son.
is a Biblical term used of the tabernacle in the Book of Exodus, of the
Temple of the Lord in Ezekiel 40:47, and of Heaven, as described in the
book of the Revelation. The term "Foursquare Gospel" was given
in the inspiration of revival to the denomination's founder, Aimee
Semple McPherson, during an evangelistic campaign in Oakland, Calif., in
1922. It represents that which is equally balanced on all sides,
established and enduring. Such confidence in the power of the Gospel is
also expressed by the verse, Hebrews 13:8, displayed in Foursquare
churches proclaiming, "Jesus Christ the Same, Yesterday and Today
The name represents the four-fold ministries of Jesus:
"But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our
iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him..." -Isaiah
53:5 (Titus 2:14, Is. 55:7, Heb. 7:25, Is. 1:18)
The Baptizer with the Holy Spirit
"For John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with
the Holy Spirit... you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come
upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all
Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." -Acts 1:5,8 (Jn.
14:16-17, Acts 2:4, Acts 8:17, Acts 10:44-46, 1 Cor. 3:16)
"He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses..."
-Matthew 8:17 (Mk. 16:17-18, Mt. 9:5-6, Acts 4:29-30)
The Soon-Coming King
"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout... the
dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall
be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the
air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord." -1 Thessalonians
4:16-17 (Titus 2:12-13, Mt. 24:36-44, Heb. 9:28, Lk. 19:13, Lk.
The vision of The Foursquare Church is to present Jesus Christ, God's Son,
to every person in every culture and nation as The Savior,
The Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, The Healer
and The Soon-Coming King. Since the founding of The
Foursquare Church in 1923, that vision has been realized through
evangelizing the lost and establishing local congregations in the United
States and abroad, through the nurturing and training of believers into
leadership on all levels of church life, and in cooperation with other
members of the body of Christ at large in the fellowship of the Gospel and
the fulfillment of the biblical mandate to be "light" and
"salt" on the earth.

Spirit as we extol the life and love of our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans

Son--His sinless life, atoning death and literal resurrection
providing salvation (Acts 4:12).

ministry rooted in the authority of Godís eternal Word, the Holy
Bible (2 Timothy 3:16).
- We prioritize a personal and church lifestyle of vital joy and hope
as Christ and His kingdom are described in John 10:10, Romans 14:17
- We promote creative personal and church ministry that spreads the

8:14-17; 19:1-6, calling believers to decisively open to the Holy
Spiritís fullness and fruit.

Spirit and instruct in how to minister in His power to Christís
glory (1 Corinthians 12-14).

being constrained by the love of Christ knowing eternal souls are at
risk, and commissioned by the grace of God since all who believe may

interdenominational evangelism, proclaiming to all that Jesus Christ
is the Savior, Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, Healer, and Soon-Coming
King (Acts 20:27).
- We prioritize planting and growing local churches as in Acts 9:31
and Ephesians 3:14-19, that believers may be grown, nurtured and
equipped for ministry.

Christís will being that His church be the living evidence of His

aid (Matthew 5:13-16).
- We place high value on the sanctity of human life, of biblical
marriage and morality, and we welcome ethnic diversity (Isaiah 56:7;
- We accept the timeless purpose of God through his ancient people
Israel, and reject anti-Semitism and all ethnic discrimination (Romans
11:11-27; Acts 17:26).
