Morning Star Baptist
Like many cities across America, Rockford's landscape is overgrown with churches. Yet, in July of 2002, God led a group of Christians to plan another church in this field. Why? As we scanned the religious landscape we found many churches that were man-centered, yet only a few that were God-centered. Furthermore, we found even fewer churches that are true to our historic Baptist and historic Fundamental doctrines. Therefore, believing it to be the will of God, we took action to plant a church that would be both God-centered and true to the "faith once delivered to the saints" (Jude 3). In the short time we have been together, God has blessed us with a pastor, a place to meet, a growing membership, new converts, a passion for the Word of God, and a sweet spirit of unity. We continue to pray that God-- for His own sake--will prosper all that we do.
