When Aimee passed the plates for "offerings" she pleaded for "...greenbacks, no loose change..." and got the greenbacks. Her followers believed she preached the true gospel, and opened their pocketbooks. Angelus Temple was dedicated on January 1, 1923. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1992, Building #92001875. The exterior of Aimee Semple McPherson's Angelus Temple in Echo Park, Los Angeles.
