Reimagining Hope’s Chapel

After four decades of prayer and patience, we believe that God has made a way for us to reimagine our building for a new season, a new harvest, and a new generation.

  • 1971

    God calls a young pastor named Ralph Moore and his wife Ruby to fill an abandoned church building-- and Hope Chapel is born.

  • 1976

    Our congregation takes ownership of an abandoned bowling alley to establish a “light on the hill” in Hermosa Beach.

  • 1983

    Ralph is called to start another church in Hawaii. Zac Nazarian becomes the senior pastor of Hope.

  • 2016

    Our congregation celebrates its 45th anniversary, with 40 years in our reclaimed bowling alley, where our deep roots give us the strength to grow.

  • 2024

    We will open new doors to welcome our neighbors, shine more light, and share in the Hope of Jesus together.


Our new fellowship hall, sanctuary, and prayer chapel are designed to foster interaction, unity, and togetherness so we can live the Gospel as one.


Churches aren’t meant to be opaque or distant from their community. The transparency of our new design highlights the life we live together.


The needs of our ministry are unpredictable and regularly shift. Our new facility has the flexibility to adapt to many events and functions.


Our congregation’s safety is close to our hearts, and we’re improving the structural integrity and internal safety of our facility to meet modern standards.


We believe churches should have accessibility at the heart of their design, and we welcome everyone to join us as we worship together.


A central mission of our new building is to appeal to young and old and everyone in between as we assemble in the faith that we share in common.
