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)

    “Behind the opposition, she saw an opportunity.
    Behind the denial she heard deliverance.
    Behind the rebuke she felt gentleness.
    Behind the insult, her intuition said otherwise.”
    -Pastor Jason Lizarraga
    This quote from last Sunday marks profound wisdom in the humility of a mother whose daughter was vexed with a devil (Matthew 15:21-28 and Mark 7:24-30). She did not let an initial denial from Jesus get in the way of her miracle. Her humility and persistence made way for her daughter’s healing, as she responded that “even dogs eat from the crumbs of the master’s table.” In that very moment, Jesus made a way where there was no way. Pastor preached an amazing message, “Don’t Let The Offense Be Greater Than The Deliverance,” to emphasize the power of pushing past offenses into the miraculous! #AmazingPastor #MorningStarPreaching #ApostolicWord #Revival #Miracles #FreshManna

    This evening marks the beginning of Passover for 2021. Passover is a sacred remembrance of the Exodus, and how the death-angel “passed-over” homes covered in the blood of a lamb. The final plague didn’t have the final say for God’s people. Today, we have the blood of Jesus Christ to cover us, and His blood trumps over any force of darkness valiantly. As this is a sober remembrance, we would like to encourage you all to refocus on the impact of Jesus Christ, our Passover Lamb’s sacrifice. Cover your family and homes in the blood of Jesus through prayer, and prepare your hearts for His power to prevail. #Passover2021 #TheBlood #MorningStarPassover #Prayer #Refocus #SoberRemembrance ...

    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!
