Our History

Our Story. The History and Future of The Foursquare Church

The remarkable life and ministry of Aimee Semple McPherson, world-famous evangelist and founder of The Foursquare Church, are celebrated in unprecedented fashion through the renovation of her home, which is located next door to Angelus Temple in Los Angeles. Those who visit the parsonage learn the amazing story of one of the most famous and influential people of the early 20th century, as well as learn how The Foursquare Church continues to serve around the world today. 

The home is restored with original furniture, photographs, props, personal artifacts and displays. The wonders of modern media tools have transformed memories and memorabilia into a trip back in time, with each room unveiling a portion of the life of Sister McPherson. The parsonage recaptures an extraordinary period of American history and culture—and it reminds us of our Foursquare heritage and call that still continues today.
