Our Location

We Believe

  1. We believe that The Bible contains the complete Word of God and every word in it is true. (Psa. 119:160, John 17:17)

  2. We believe in One true God. He was manifested in the flesh as Jesus Christ. We are monotheistic. (Deut. 6:4, John 14:9)

  3. We believe that obedience in repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus, receiving, and being led of His Spirit to all truth which is holiness. (Acts 2:38)

  4. We believe in the infilling of the Holy Ghost as evidenced in the book of Acts. (Acts 2:4, 10:46)

  5. We believe in the local assembly and the gathering of the saints for worship, praise and fellowship. (Heb. 10:25)

  6. We believe that the pastor is the head of the local church. He must be able to preach/prophesy, teach, and do the work of an evangelist in spreading the Apostles’ doctrine. (Eph. 4:11)

  7. We believe in the “catching away” of the believers who have made themselves ready. (1 Th. 4:17)

  8. We believe that following the rapture, there will be a tribulation period of seven years for the world and all who were not ready. (Matt. 24:21)

  9. We believe…Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. (Jude 1:21)

    Esther 4:14 has a beautiful reminder for God’s chosen people: “Perhaps you were born for such a time as this.” For this year, February 25th and 26th mark a very special occasion from the origin story of Esther, Purim. This celebration recounts how Haman had devised and cast Pur (lots) to destroy the Jews with the King’s decree. Yet, God’s hand moved powerfully through collective fasting, humble prayer and Esther’s courage. With Esther’s bold petition on behalf of her people, the King amended his decree to allow the Jews to fight their enemies back. Fear fell upon their enemies, and the Jews prevailed triumphantly. Purim celebrates how God turned mourning into gladness and a death decree into a victory! Traditionally, Purim is commemorated through dressing up, as God was “hidden” but ever present throughout the book of Esther. Tonight, MorningStar will be celebrating this wonderful occasion at our Bible Study, beginning at 7pm! Join us and invite someone to the house of the Lord! #Purim #Celebration #MorningStar #BibleStudy #Victory #JoinUs #InviteSomebody #TheBookOfEsther #Anticipate ... See MoreSee Less

    For #ThoughtfulTuesday, we have a moving quote from Bishop, “God has given us an open door, and it is up to us to have faith to go through.” If you want to take your faith to the next level, watch this anointed message from last Sunday, “Behold, The Open Door.”
    “I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.”
    ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭3:8‬ (KJV)

    Celebrating 45 years of marriage!

        May 23rd, 2020 marks 45 years of powerful and enduring love for Bishop and Elect Lady Lizarraga. Forty-five years of marriage is traditionally celebrated with a sapphire stone gift. Just like the sapphire gem, their marriage certainly reflects the rare and precious beauty of a love established in Jesus Christ. This Kingdom Couple has not focused on earthly exploits, but rather heavenly pursuits. As they founded MorningStar Apostolic Church and continue to lead this congregation, Bishop and Elect Lady have fervently warred in prayer, internationally supported those in need, passionately raised a family to fear the Lord and wholeheartedly followed the will of God with their leadership roles. This milestone can only be depicted in snapshots of miracles and victories that a lifetime of dedication and love creates!
