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.
Incredible, contemporary, touching worship service and sermons both times I've been there! Truly this is what heaven most look like. Aimee's legacy lives on. If you want to experience God, go to the Thursday 7pm or Sunday, 10am service. Wow!
You better do some research on Aimee Semple McPherson before your visit or you will miss the whole thing. The place is rich in history and I would like to see more information about the founder, Sister Aimee, available. Perhaps the Parsonage as a museum?
Actually Angelus Temple had more history than I expected, though I visited about 5 years ago before they renovated. There was an interesting exhibit area on the second floor that had photos with stories and relics from the purported healings that happened at the church...crutches, casts, etc that people took off when they were healed. A little eerie but fascinating, especially since people still get healed in the foursquare church. Worth a look.
