Lively was chosen as pastor.  Through the years, three pastors succeeded Rev. Lively.  They were the late Rev. A.A.Hill, Rev. Richard Brown and the late Rev. Marlon Clark.  Our first trustees were Mr. Lewis Lively, Mr. William Hooker and Mr. William Perry.  In 1897, construction was began on a church building.  Throughout the years, many organizations were started.  Some of them were Willing Workers, Church Aide Club, Gospel Chorus and Youth Department, just to name a few.

In 1976, Rev. Wilbur R. Jones was selected as pastor of Morning Star Baptist Church.  He has remained the pastor of our church for 30 years.  Through his vision, foresight and determination, Morning Star Baptist Church has been blessed with continuous growth, a new sanctuary with renovations to the old sanctuary, complete up-to-date renovations of the fellowship hall, kitchen and classrooms.

We are a free-spirited church.  We love praising the Lord.  You are cordially invited to attend our Sunday Morning Worship Services and Wednesday Night Bible Studies.  We look forward to praising, raising and uplifting the Lord's name to all.
