Who We Are
Hope Chapel was founded in 1948 in Oceanside, CA as the Oceanside Foursquare Church. Over the years it has been known as the Oceanside Foursquare Church, Seaside Bible Chapel, and North Coast Community Foursquare Church and for over fifteen years as Hope Chapel. No matter what banner it has been under, it has always been a dedicated lighthouse for the Word of God. We are a part of the ever growing Foursquare family of churches. Angelus Temple in Los Angeles California, the headquarters church, was opened and dedicated by its founder, Aimee Semple McPherson, January 1, 1923. The “ Temple” , as it has been known, held 5,300 people and was filled to capacity three services a day, seven days a week. During the “ great depression” the Foursquare church in Los Angeles fed more than 1.5 million people. While over the years the organization has gone through many changes, it is still fundamentally committed to God’ s Word and to be a lighthouse of evangelism as it has and always will.
We at Hope Chapel feel proud of our great heritage and have committed ourselves to be that same beacon of Christ’ s love to the world. At Hope we believe in practical Christian living through the study and teaching of God’ s Word. It is our heartfelt desire to equip every believer with all that is necessary to become a capable representative for Christ in their community and we encourage them to go out into the world and fulfill the great commission of Christ and reach the lost in this world. We are, by the world’ s standard, a small church but we worship a mighty God and through His power we have always been active in missions internationally as well as locally. We enjoin the mindset of, “Think Globally, Act Locally.”
