We are a "Foursquare Church"

What is "Foursquare"?

Our Name

The meaning behind it

 

"Foursquare" 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

and Forever."

 

The name represents the four-fold ministries of Jesus:

 

THE SAVIOR

"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,

Isaiah 55:7, Hebrews 7:25, Isaiah 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 (John 14:16-17, Acts 2:4, Acts 8:17, Acts 10:44-46,

1 Corinthians 3:16)

 

THE HEALER

"He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses..."

–Matthew 8:17 (Mark 16:17-18, Matthew 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, Matthew 24:36-44,

Hebrews 9:28, Luke 19:13, Luke 12:35-37.)
