What does Four Square Mean? (my church denomination in a nutshell)





You all know my husband is a pastor but many of you do not know what type of church we attend or serve at.  We are part of the foursquare church that was founded in California by an awesome women named Aimee Semple McPherson.  I love knowing that the church I belong to activates and encourages women in their gifting and callings.  :) 

So back to the foursquare and the logo:


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.)
Those four things are truly the backbone!  So when 
people ask what church I go to I can quickly say 
foursquare where we believe Jesus is our savior, 
baptizer, healer, and soon and coming king.  AMEN
