Moore attended L.I.F.E. Bible College and became a pastor in a Foursquare church in Oregon. One day, he said, he heard God speak to him out loud in the middle of a crowded restaurant, telling him to take the pastorate of a small Foursquare church in Manhattan Beach.
Hope Chapel is now a community of people who love God and are actively committed to loving and caring for one another. Our purpose is to become followers (disciples) of the Lord Jesus Christ and to realize His plan for our lives. This process is accomplished through Bible study, prayer, serving, fellowship, baptism, communion and worship. (Matthew 28:19, Ephesians4:12, Acts 2:42,27, Romans 12:1-2).
