About Us: The early 20th century evangelist, Aimee Semple McPherson, was a pioneer of women in religion. Having experienced conversion at the age of seventeen, Aimee began preaching across the United States and later, the world, summarizing her message into four major points known as "The Foursquare Gospel". In 1918, she established her base in Los Angeles, California, where she founded a denomination called The International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. In 1923, the 5300 seat Angelus Temple was dedicated and became the center of her revival, healing and benevolent ministries. She was the first woman to receive a FCC radio license and was a pioneer religious broadcaster. Her sermons were the first to incorporate the contemporary communications of that day into her preaching of the Gospel. From Angelus Temple she performed an extensive social ministry, providing hot meals for more than 1.5 million people during the Great Depression.
