Acts 12:7-9, And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision. (KJV)
About Our Church
On April 15, 1990, Apostle Moore began his first ministry in the basement of his home with just three members. In July 1991, God blessed Apostle Moore and the Greater Refuge Ministries family to relocate to 7929 Old Branch Avenue in Clinton, Maryland.
It was there the Lord gave Apostle Moore the vision of building a new church home. In 2005, God brought the vision to fruition and Great Refuge moved into it's current edifice located at 9510 Piscataway Road in Clinton, Maryland.
