MorningStar Apostolic Church International consists of people of various ethnic backgrounds who are endeavoring to serve God in their every day living. Established by the Lord to shine the light of His glorious Gospel to the world. Built on the foundation of the Apostles’ doctrine and empowered by Jesus Christ, our Chief Corner Stone. God has shown His favor toward us, and we are humbled by His goodness. If you are searching for truth, peace, life everlasting, miracles, restoration, or a shelter from life’s storms, please come!
We believe that The Bible contains the complete Word of God and every word in it is true. (Psa. 119:160, John 17:17)
We believe in One true God. He was manifested in the flesh as Jesus Christ. We are monotheistic. (Deut. 6:4, John 14:9)
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)
We believe in the infilling of the Holy Ghost as evidenced in the book of Acts. (Acts 2:4, 10:46)
We believe in the local assembly and the gathering of the saints for worship, praise and fellowship. (Heb. 10:25)
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)
We believe in the “catching away” of the believers who have made themselves ready. (1 Th. 4:17)
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)
We believe…Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. (Jude 1:21)

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!
