What We’re All About
At Crescent City Foursquare, our mission is simple:
“Love God and love others,
continuing the mission of Jesus today.”
Our church is increasingly becoming a lighthouse and a teaching hospital, effectively assisting people with committing their lives to Christ and then equipping them to continue the mission of Jesus in their homes and communities.
Crescent City Foursquare Church was founded in 1931 under the name “The Foursquare Gospel Church.” From its beginning, the church has stood tall in the heart of the city with a goal of being a blessing to the community.
We’re located at:
144 Butte Street,

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7 NIV)
People will see our deepening submission to biblical authority as we boldly teach biblical truth, read the Bible daily and prayerfully apply it to our lives (Acts 17:11; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; James 1:23-25; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV)

They joined with the other believers and devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, sharing in the Lord’s Supper and in prayer. A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. And all the believers met together constantly and shared everything they had. They sold their possessions and shared the proceeds with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity—all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their group those who were being saved. (Acts 2:42-47)

Though I am free and belong to no one, I have a myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings. (1 Corinthians 9: 19-23 NIV)

“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’” (Matthew 25:37-40 NIV)
