Foursquare Churches In Las Vegas And Worldwide

By Helen Roberts


The name International Church of the Foursquare Gospel is the full version of the often shortened name, Foursquare Church. The name is used in its short form, ICFG. It was established in 1923 by some preacher and evangelist called Semple McPherson. McPherson based their entire ministry in Los Angeles. On the global stage, ICFG has a total of some 8 million followers. The number of churches under its named exceed sixty thousand while the number of countries it is located also exceed 144.

In the US alone, the denomination was estimated to have more than 353, 995 members. The distribution is quite fair within the whole country although there is a higher concentration of churches along the West Coast. California, Washington, Hawaii, Montana, and Oregon are some among the states with the highest members. Thus when in need of Foursquare churches in Las Vegas, it should not be a problem locating one.

The headquarters is housed in the city of Los Angeles, California. It has always been located there since time immemorial partly because McPherson based their entire ministry in the state of California. The source of the name Foursquare is the 4-fold ministry Jesus had on earth. This ministry refers to Jesus Christ as the Savior, Baptizer with Holy Spirit, Healer, and Soon-returning King. These four represent the purpose Jesus set to accomplish on earth when He came down.

The compilation named the Declaration of Faith contains an expression of ICFG beliefs. The Declaration of Faith was written by McPherson. Creedal statement is also available go complement the major compilation. The two offer instructions and guidance for the congregation and leaders to follow. The ICFG belief system bases on the verbal inspiration of Bible, doctrine of Holy Trinity, and deity of Jesus.

In this denomination, it is believed that God created man in His likeness, but because of the Fall, man became sinful. However, the death of Jesus atoned for all sins man committed. People who repent sins, accept Jesus and become reborn again have their faith confirmed. Backsliding and commitment of sin after salvation is believed to be totally possible.

The topmost decision making body within the ICFG is the Foursquare Convention. The convention meets after every two years to vote members into office. Members who vote are usually international officers and licensed ministers. Every ICFG church within the US has the right to send a voting delegate to the convention. Similarly, national ICFG churches can also send a single voting delegate.

The church of ICFG is under the management of a 12 to 20-person board of directors. This board appoints officers within the church. Similarly, ministers are ordained and licensed by the board. The president, the vice president, and nine ministers at the least form the board. Church members cay also work on the board if they are appointed to do so.

The church in the US is divided into individual churches, divisions, and districts. These units have leaders who oversee them. The church has a very comprehensive management structure in place to make sure that all operations and decisions are made in an efficient manner.
