Welcome to the Union Foursquare Gospel Church, located at 404 North Broad Street Elizabeth, New Jersey 07208. (The Tabernacle of His Presence) A place where the Lord God Almighty manifests His presence and power each time we gather to worship Him. It is always the fulfillment of His promise that where two or three are gathered in His Name, there He is in their midst (Matthew 18:20) or His promise to King Solomon “I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.” 2 Chronicles 7:15-16. It is where you feel the fullness of the presence of the Holy Spirit as in the days of Pentecost as recorded in Acts chapter 2.

Our Mission We believe in the maximization of all potentials for multiplied increases within the shortest possible time. We believe that there is no one useless in the hands of God our creator and that God is able and ready to receive even the worst sinner, forgive their sins, take away their old and sinful nature, give them new lives and Spirit and them useful instruments in His hands. We believe in the fullness and power of the Grace of God.
