- About the
Foursquare Church -
What We Believe
The credibility of one's faith is based upon the object of their
belief. Thus, the term "foursquare" has reference to balance in
doctrine as well as in lifestyle. Being a Foursquare church is just
that--holding a Bible-based foundation for our faith, as well as a Holy
Spirit-anointed walk in faithfulness.
The Foursquare Declaration of Faith lays out the basic
doctrine of The Foursquare Church and was drafted by Foursquare founder Aimee
Semple McPherson. An abbreviated version is below. A complete
version can be found at The
|The Holy Scriptures
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of
God: true, immutable, steadfast, and unchangeable (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).
The Eternal Godhead
We believe that God is triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the Three are
coexistent, coeternal, and equal in divine perfection (1 John 5:7).
The Fall of Man
We believe that man, created in the image of God, by
voluntary disobedience fell into the depths of sin and iniquity,
bequeathing sinís nature and consequences to all mankind, with their
accompanying loss of intended meaning and purpose (Genesis 1:27; Romans
The Plan of Redemption
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died
for us, took our place, and with His lifeís blood purchased the pardon
for all who believe in Him (John 3:16; Titus 2:14).
Salvation Through Grace
We believe that salvation is wholly through grace; that no human
righteousness or merit can contribute to our receiving Godís love and
favor (Ephesians 2:8).
Repentance and Acceptance
We believe that, upon sincere repentance and a whole-hearted acceptance of
Christ, we are justified before God through Jesusí sacrificial death
(Romans 10:6-10; 1 John 1:9).
The New Birth
We believe that the change that takes place in people at conversion is a
very real one; that having received righteousness in Christ and having
received of His Spirit, people will have new desires, interests, and
pursuits in life (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).
Daily Christian Life
We believe that it is the will of God that those who
have been born again grow in sanctification, become partakers of His
holiness, and daily grow stronger in the faith, power, prayer, love, and
service (2 Corinthians 7:1).
Water Baptism and the Lord's Supper
We believe that being baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy
Spirit is an essential response to Jesusí command, testifying to His
lordship as Christ and King (Romans 6:4). We believe in observing the
Lordís Supper, receiving the broken bread and the fruit of the vine with
joy and faith as we partake anew of the life and triumph of Christís
Cross (1 Corinthians 11:24-26)
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit empowers believers to exalt
Jesus, to live lives of holiness, and to be witnesses of Godís saving
grace; we expect the Spiritís incoming to be after the same manner as
that in which He came upon believers in the days of the Early Church (Acts
1: 5, 8; 2:4).
The Spirit-Filled Life
We believe that it is the will of God that believers walk in the Spirit
moment by moment, serving the Lord and living lives of patience, love,
truth, sincerity, and prayer (Ephesians 4:30-32; Galatians 5:16, 25).
The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit bestows enabling ministry gifts upon
believers, and that these gifts will build up the Body of Christ through
edification and evangelism(1 Corinthians 12:1-11); as evidence of a
Spirit-filled life, believers should show spiritual ďfruitĒ: love,
joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness,
temperance (Galatians 5:22-25).
We believe a Christiansí moderation should be obvious to others and that
relationship with Jesus should never lead people into extremes of
fanaticism; their lives should model that of Christ in uprightness,
balance, humility, and self-sacrifice (Colossians 3:12, 13; Philippians
We believe that divine healing is the power of Jesus Christ to heal the
sick in answer to the prayer of faith; He, who does not change, is still
willing and able to heal the body, as well as the soul and spirit in
answer to faith (Mark 16: 17, 18; James 5:14-16).
The Second Coming of Christ
We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent; the
certainty of His coming and the fact that no man knows the hour of His
coming prompt our evangelistic efforts; that the Lord Himself will descend
from Heaven, the dead in Christ shall rise, and the redeemed will be
caught up to meet the Lord in the air (Matthew 24:36, 42, 44; 1
Thessalonians 4:16, 17).
We believe that it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with a
congregation of believers with whom we can worship God, observe the
ordinances of Christ, exhort and support one another, labor for the
salvation of others, and work together to advance the Lordís Kingdom
(Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:24).
We believe that civil government is by divine appointment and that civil
laws should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of
God (Acts 4: 18-20; Romans 13:1-5).
We believe that all shall stand before the judgment seat of Christ: the
redeemed to be delivered unto everlasting life, and the unrepentant unto
everlasting punishment (Revelation 20:11, 12; 2 Corinthians 5:10).
We believe that heaven is the glorious habitation of the living God and
the eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:2; Revelation 7:15-17).
We believe that hell is a place of darkness, deepest
sorrow, and unquenchable fire, which was not prepared for man but for the
devil and his angels; yet it will become the place of eternal separation
from God for all who reject Christ as Savior (Matthew 13: 41, 42;
Revelation 10:10, 15).
We believe that soul winning is the ďone big businessĒ of the Church
on earth, and that every hindrance to worldwide evangelism should be
removed (James 5:20; Mark 16:15).
Tithing and Offerings
We believe that tithing and offerings are ordained of
God to sustain His ministry, spread the Gospel, and release personal
blessing (Malachi 3:10; 1 Corinthians 16: 1, 2).
