Overview

Angelus Temple was opened by Aimee Semple McPherson in 1923. She was a highly eccentric and spiritual woman who rejected her Methodist upbringing in order to preach her famous Pentecostal "Foursquare Gospel." In addition to opening the church, she started a radio station and opened a Bible College. Her church became known as the Church of the Foursquare Gospel. The "foursquare" refers to the four symbols Aimee saw in a vision: the cross, the crown, the dove and the cup. The church itself is magnificent, a large, domed, circular structure based on the design of the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City. Regardless of doctrine, the structure and its historic significance is worth a visit to this site.
