Our Vision

 

While it is important to understand the purpose of the Church of the Foursquare Gospel is to proclaim that :

   Jesus Christ is Saviour,

     Jesus Christ is the Baptiser in the Holy Spirit,

    Jesus Christ is Healer,

     Jesus Christ is the soon-coming King.

To really understand the movement, you must begin with the Church of the Foursquare Gospel’s overall vision:

(Heb 13:8) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Foursquare WA OfficesIn other words, the Church of the Foursquare Gospel is not solely centred on the issues of:

Salvation                                                 Faith

Divine healing                                       Water baptism

The baptism in the Holy Spirit.         The word of God

The 2nd coming.                                    Pre – Mid – or Post Tribulation return

A particular doctrine                            Any particular liturgy

Worship format

Wherever this fellowship is found throughout the world, this is the vision that inspires and provides direction.

As a result, the Church of the Foursquare Gospel in Australia:

  • Does not give itself to fads or trends in church service or liturgy.
  • Does not focus on one truth to the detriment of others (eg faith; 2nd coming; gifts of the Holy Spirit).
  • Is not prone to ‘hero-worship’ of leadership, rather, believes in ‘servant leadership’.
  • Is more concerned with the fruit of the Holy Spirit in a believer’s life overall [Gal 5], than with the manifestation of spiritual gifts or ministries.
  • Is totally committed to the ultimate unity of the body of Christ and is, therefore, always in the forefront of ecumenical fellowship.
  • Is always concerned with issues of Godly ethics, social justice and biblical morality as the bible discusses.
  • Never gives itself to the building of church empires, but seeks to bring salvation, healing, empowering and hope to people of all people groups, ethnicities, languages and nations.
