Northside Community Church is part of the Foursquare Church which operates in every continent of the world with 7+ million members in 50,000 Churches spread throughout 147 Nations. The term “Foursquare” is a Biblical term used of the tabernacle (a temple in a tent) in the Book of Exodus. The term “Foursquare Gospel” was used by the denomination’s founder, Aimee Semple McPherson to represent that which is equally balanced on all sides.

We say that “Jesus Christ is the Same, Yesterday and Today and Forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)

The Foursquare Gospel is in complete harmony with traditional Christian doctrine and is summarised as below. We believe that Jesus Christ is:


The Saviour


“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 Baptiser 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.)
