The Birth of the Foursquare Gospel in Canada: Tracing the Roots of the First Foursquare Church in Vancouver, Canada

Derek M Geerlof


This essay traces the pre-history of Vancouver’s Foursquare Gospel Lighthouse (now the Kingsway Foursquare Church in Burnaby, Canada) founded in September 1927 by Anna D. Britton. As the first Foursquare Gospel Church in Canada, this congregation played a pivotal role in establishing the work of Aimee Semple McPherson’s International Church of the Foursquare Gospel in Canada.
