The term "Foursquare" stands for the four-fold ministry of Jesus Christ as:
1. The Savior (Romans 10:9)
2. Baptizer with the Holy Spirit (Luke 3:16)
3. Healer (1 Peter 2:24)
4. The Coming King (Acts 1:11)
The Foursquare Church was founded in the midst of the great depression and tremendous need in Los Angeles, 1923. Since that time Foursquare has grown from one local fellowship to more than 3000 churches in the United States and more than eight million people in 127 countries.
We have no desire to compete or compare. We rejoice for every group of believers which honors the sacrifice Jesus Christ made on the cross. The Foursquare Church is a member of the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) and as a Pentecostal Church is affiliated with the Pentecostal-Charismatic Churches of North America (PCCNA) and the Pentecostal World Conference.
