A Few Words About Us
History of Fourth
On April 3, 1902 a small group of believers with a vision for establishing a new church began meeting at Webster School which was purchased by Gonzaga University in 1945. It became the first Gonzaga Law library. God began answering their prayers very quickly and on November 1 two lots on the corner of Baldwin and Dakota were purchased for $600.

THE BIBLE is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under supernatural guidance by the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme and final authority for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error in the original autographs...
