JACKSON, AL (WALA) -

For the second night in a row, Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore surrounded himself with evangelicals as he tries to fight off allegations of sexual misconduct. Moore spoke at the "God Save America" Revival at Walker Springs Road Baptist Church in Jackson, Alabama. 

Moore and his wife Kayla arrived just before the service got underway at 7 p.m. There was singing and a sermon before Moore took the stage around 8:20 p.m. He spoke for a little over 30 minutes. Often times it sounded like a sermon as he quoted lots of scripture.

Moore talked about his 40 years of service and how he has "taken a stand for god" and "what's right" -- noting his refusal to remove the Ten Commandments monument and his attempt to stop same-sex marriage as the Alabama's Chief Justice. He also believes this is why he is being "attacked and persecuted" by what he calls "false allegations."

"After 40 something years of fighting this battle, I'm now facing allegations... And that's all the press wants to talk about. But I want to talk about the issues. I want to talk about where this country is going and if we don't come back to God, we're not going anywhere," said Moore.

Half-jokingly Moore told the crowd of supporters he's the only candidate who can unite both parties as they work together to try and force him out of the race. 

"Obviously I've made a few people mad. I'm the only one who can unite Democrats and Republicans -- because I seem to be opposed by both. They've spent over $30-million trying to take me out. They've done everything they could and now they're together to try and keep me from going to Washington. And why? Well, it has a lot to do with what we are talking about tonight. We want our country to be saved by God, but we've got a part in it if we humble ourselves and pray and seek his faith and turn from our wicked ways," said Moore.  

Shortly after the service, Moore and his wife were escorted to their car and left without answering any questions from the media. However, we did speak to a couple of people who heard what he had to say. Here's their take on the allegations and continued calls from top Republicans for Moore to bow out.

"I think he's right and I don't think he's done anything wrong. I think it's just a thing... They want to get rid of him," said Helen Jackson.

"As far as my opinion, I think they ought to not find him guilty until he's found guilty. Don't even make any kind of allegations for standing for somebody they don't even know and for someone who is standing for the truth," said another man, who sat in on the service.

In closing Moore said he wants to "speak the truth and take the truth to Washington if it's God's will."  Voters will decide on December 12th.
