What the Foursquare Church Believes

  • BAPTISM WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT - We believe that baptism with the Holy Spirit empowers believers, and that the Holy Spirit’s incoming follows the same pattern that is described in the New Testament (Acts 2:4).
  • WATER BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER - We believe that baptism by immersion in water is an outward sign of an inward work (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4). We believe in commemorating the Lord’s Supper by the symbolic use of bread and fruit of the vine (1 Cor. 11:24, 25). 
  • CHURCH RELATIONSHIP -We believe that followers of Christ have a sacred duty to identify with the visible church of Jesus Christ and should meet regularly with fellow believers (Heb. 10:24, 25).
  • CIVIL GOVERNMENT - We believe that laws and ordinances come from God’s ultimate authority and should be upheld, except when they are in opposition to the revealed will of God (Rom. 13:1-5).
  • DAILY CHRISTIAN LIFE  -We believe that it is the will of God for believers to walk in progressive sanctification, growing continuously in the faith (Heb. 6:1).
  • DIVINE HEALING - We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the sick in answer to prayer offered in faith (Jas. 5:14-16).
  • EVANGELISM  - We believe that the church’s primary responsibilities are taking the gospel to the entire world and making disciples (Mark 16:15; Matt. 28:19-20).
  • THE ETERNAL GODHEAD - We believe that God is Triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2 Cor. 13:14).
  • THE FALL OF MAN  - We believe that man is created in the image of God but, by voluntary disobedience, fell from perfection—thereby imbuing humanity with sinfulness (Rom. 5:12).
  • THE GIFTS AND FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT  - We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon Christians (1 Cor. 12:1-11) and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (Gal. 5:22-25).
  • HEAVEN  -We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Rev. 7:15-17).
  • HELL  - We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as Savior (Rev. 20:11-15). 
  • THE HOLY SCRIPTURES  - We believe that the Bible is God-inspired (2 Tim. 3:16, 17).
  • THE FINAL JUDGMENT - We believe every person will one day stand before the judgment seat of Christ to receive eternal life or death (Rev. 20:11-15; Heb. 9:27; 2 Cor. 5:10). 
  • MODERATION  - We believe that people who follow Christ should avoid the extremes of fanaticism and pursue lives of balance and moderation, demonstrating gentleness and patience (Phil. 4:5, KJV; Col. 3:12, 13).
  • THE NEW BIRTH  - We believe that a genuine change takes place in people who accept Christ as Savior; believers allow Christ’s life to be lived through them (2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 2:20).
  • REPENTANCE AND ACCEPTANCE  - We believe that, upon sincere repentance and a wholehearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (Rom. 10:8-10; 1 John 1:9).
  • THE PLAN OF REDEMPTION  - We believe that, while we were sinners, Christ died for us—pardoning all who believe in Him (John 3:16; Rom. 5:8).
  • SALVATION THROUGH GRACE - We believe that we receive salvation when we come to God through faith in the atoning work of Jesus on the cross. Salvation is God’s gift to us (Eph. 2:8).
  • THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST  - We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (1 Thess. 4:16, 17; Titus 2:1113).
  • THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE  - We believe that it is the will of God that we daily walk in the power of the Holy Spirit (Eph. 4:30-32).
  • TITHES AND OFFERINGS  - We believe the method ordained by God for the support and spread of His cause is giving tithes and offerings (Mal. 3:10; 2 Cor 9:7)
