ABOUT US

Established in 1995 by Rick Joyner, MorningStar Fellowship Church endeavors to be a loving community of believers seeking to fulfill the Ephesians 4:11-16 mandate. Since every member of the body of Christ is called to function, we equip the church to do the work of the ministry. As a result, more than thirty different ministries have been established. Here are a few of them:

  • Family Ministry
  • MorningStar Kids
  • Young Adults
  • Men’s Ministry
  • Women’s Ministry
  • 50+ Ministry

Our services are devoted to sound biblical teaching, personal ministry, and a contemporary style of worship. We believe that the church is called to be a family and not just an organization; therefore, we provide an informal atmosphere to promote genuine relationships with the Lord and with one another.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

The following is a statement of our position of basic Christian doctrines. As once stated by a great missionary, “There are certain basic Christian truths about which there must be agreement. On all other doctrines there should be liberty. In all things there must be charity.” It is our resolution to take an uncompromising stand on the essential doctrines of the faith, and extend “the right hand of fellowship” to all who hold to them. It is also our resolution to protect the liberty of Christians to hold different perspectives on the “non-essential” doctrines.

There are doctrines we may consider non-essential, but which are important. We therefore make known our belief on these, while presenting them with tolerance toward those who may hold a different position. We are committed to truth and accuracy in doctrine, but also understand that one can hold right doctrines and still do damage to the body of Christ by causing divisions over the non-essentials. We are therefore just as committed to the essential Christian character, believing that “In all things there must be charity.” As the apostle stated, “The goal of our instruction is love, from a pure heart and a sincere faith” (I Timothy 1:5). That, too, is our goal and commitment. Click here to view our statement of faith.
