Publisher's Description

It was with the aim of “Worldwide, Interdenominational Evangelism” that Aimee Semple McPherson dedicated Angelus Temple on January 1, 1923. Shortly thereafter, an evangelistic training institute was created. And in 1927, the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel came into existence.

From its beginning in the early twentieth century, the ministry of the Foursquare Gospel Church and its message of “Jesus Christ the same, Yesterday and Today and Forever,” has spread into more than 140 countries of the world, with more than 66,000 churches ministering to more than 8.7 million members worldwide.
 
The Vine and the Branches: A History of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel) traces the growth of the Foursquare Church, its doctrine, organization, mission to the world, and even its difficulties. Written by one who was a productive participant in much of its history, this book provides an honest accurate and perceptive record of those who have contributed to its present role in the Body of Christ.

Author Bio

Dr. Nathaniel Van Cleave was a faithful servant of the Lord in the Foursquare Church—pastor, missionary, theologian, professor, author, musician, supervisor, and Bible college president. As a young man, his life was deeply influenced by the ministry of many significant Pentecostal preachers during the first generation of Pentecostal outpouring in North America. Gifted by God with extraordinary abilities, he made “full proof of his ministry,” devoting himself to preaching and teaching the Word for more than fifty years. He authored Handbook of Preaching, which has been reprinted numerous times and is translated for use in many training centers around the world, and co-authored Foundations of Pentecostal Theology, a comprehensive textbook of Pentecostal theology. This work—The Vine and the Branches—was his magnum opus.

Editorial Reviews

The Vine and The Branches is a verbal video of our Foursquare Church forebears and founders (Note the plural, please!). This God-produced drama has unfolded under His hand over decades of His blessing upon a cast of multitudes. We’ve been given a wealth of ‘gems,’ an inheritance in ‘the life and testament’ of laborers who birthed a family and laid durable spiritual foundations. Read this book for inspiration, insight, and instruction. The wisdom of years is distilled ‘between the lines’—evidenced by our Lord’s having taken a people and ‘built up a spiritual house’ through the Holy Spirit’s gifts, graces, and glory. We will enrich our future as we welcome the wisdom of our history—by both honoring it and applying the timeless spiritual values and priorities that have been lived, sown, watered, and harvested to grow a global, Spirit-filled, Christ-glorifying movement.”
 —Dr. Jack W. Hayford
Chancellor of The King’s University

The Vine and The Branches is a faith classic—the story of God's promises intersecting with men and women chosen for a particular purpose. It is the genesis of the Foursquare Movement through which millions were transformed. This extraordinary venture is still ongoing, yet transforming, and is once again beckoning men and women to a particular purpose. This is our story. This is our song.”
—Dr. Wayne Cordeiro
President of New Hope International
