What we believe in
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, and in His bodily resurrection.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and infallible Word of God.
We believe in salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as a subsequent gift to salvation.
We believe in the provision of bodily healing in the atoning work of Jesus our Saviour.
We believe in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the saved unto eternal life, living eternally in the presence of God, and the lost unto eternal separation from God without further opportunity of repentance.
What is Foursquare?
The term ‘Foursquare Gospel’ was given in the inspiration of revival to founder Aimee Semple McPherson, during an evangelistic campaign in Oakland, California, in 1922.
Foursquare represents that which is equally balanced on all sides, established and enduring. Such confidence in the power of the Gospel is also expressed in 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:
“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 Baptiser with the Holy Spirit
“For John truly baptised with water, but you shall be baptised 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)
“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)
