Why Foursquare

The Future

Every local Church needs the advice and support of a wider group of people to encourage the next generation of leaders.

The Present

We also need to have a sense of real accountability which provides a safeguard for our Church family.

  1. World-Wide Family.
  2. Foursquare operates in every continent of the world with more than 65,000 congregations serving in approximately 140 nations. We embrace our Leader's dream to see the Foursquare flag planted in every one of the 195 countries that have been formally recognized as nations. We believe that since the time of our outgoing website information, Foursquare work has now reached more nations.

  3. Third Generation.
  4. Foursquare is a movement that is still growing even in its third generation. This shows that there is life within and the passion & heartbeat of the founder is still alive and thriving and indeed has been increased by the Lord moving in each new generation. The blessing of God is clearly upon this movement with new leaders constantly being developed. Those involved in its overall leadership are often not as well known as some individual ministers within the movement. This speaks of a disinclination to be pushing for senior posts and a putting back of priority into the fruitful local church ministry.

  5. Interdenominational Evangelism.
  6. It is vital to be a part of a movement that both acknowledges and promotes this. Foursquare encourages the local church to be at the forefront of developing structures for unity and closer working relationships within the wider body of Christ.

  7. Maintaining Radical Middle Ground.
  8. With all the excesses and extremes that are prevalent in the charismatic movement today, it is vital to be a part of a movement that values the middle ground. The heart of a movement needs to be balanced and noted for its moderation whilst actively seeking to be biblically based and open to all of the Holy Spirit’s work.

  9. Embracing Men & Women in Leadership & Ministry.
  10. Humanly speaking, the Foursquare movement was initiated by a woman and there has always been an acceptance and encouragement of woman in active leadership and ministry. Couples are encouraged to work together and people are recognised for their gifting and not prejudiced according to their gender.

  11. Primary Focus On The Gospel.
  12. The freshness in the Foursquare movement is maintained by its passion for preaching of the gospel message. It has not become side-tracked by other issues of church life, valid as they might be, but has maintained its central stance on the work and person of the Lord Jesus Christ. The emphasis is firmly upon Jesus as being, The Saviour of the world, The Healer of our sicknesses, The Baptiser with the Holy Spirit and The Soon Coming King. This emphasis is a continual reminder of the need to be sharing the gospel news. There is a primary concern for local church planting to be a fruit of this.

  13. Family.
  14. The movement is not a hard-nosed authoritarian system but a family of people who want to work together and are committed to one another. There is freedom for each local church to express its own identity whilst maintaining the family likeness and the principles of life engendered within the Foursquare movement.
