God Be Glorified 


The primary purpose of our church is to glorify God. This occurs by preaching the true teachings of Christ Jesus. We seek to find those who don't know the Lord as well as to strengthen God's people by reflecting on the  character of Christ through obedience to His Word. While salvation comes by faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, a believer will devote oneself to a life of zeal, commitment, and growth in understanding God's Word. The Bible tells us to be "doers" not just "hearers" of the Word. And Jesus says we are not to be "of the world" even though we live our lives in it. Therefore, we seek to be a good example and portray the joy of the Lord.  A Christian's lifestyle should follow the patterns of the Bible.




We are the Hands and Feet  of Jesus Christ, God


May the Lord God bless us all with open eyes, open minds, open hands, and open hearts, so that we can continually  be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ here on earth. "Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. " Dear Lord, please give us hearts that are always ready to help! Please allow us to cheerfully, joyfully, and gratefully  uplift and encourage others through your Word. Help us to always be ready emotionally, physically, financially, and otherwise, to meet the needs of your people however you want us to.




How it's Done


1. Present to the lost The Gospel of salvation based on faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ 

2.  Teach about true repentance and conversion.

3. Teach and nurture the believers toward a sanctified life and to faithfulness by God's grace and through His Word.

4. Preserve sound doctrine by "contending for faith"

5. Offering loving, humble deeds of service to fellow believers and all mankind in the name of Christ. 



Steps to Salvation

Once you decide to give your life over to Jesus Christ and put your complete trust in Him the word says "I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me."

Overseer Pastor Gracie Mae Thomas

And The History of Bright and Morning Star Church

In 1970 through 1984 under the Presiding Bishop L.E. Best, of the Highway Pentecostal Church Of Christ in Whiteville North Carolina, where she accepted Christ into her life, in 1971. Working wherever her hands found a need be it singing in the choir to a doorkeeper, ushering.

In 1984 Pastor Thomas moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina and continuing her calling, she would come under the leadership of Presiding Bishop Juan P. Bautista, Pastor of New Galilee Church Of God In Christ Jesus Of The Apostolic Faith Inc. Fayetteville, North Carolina from 1984 -1987.

 Still in the service of God, she would earn the nickname Fire Starter and be elevated to President of the Usher Board, Pastoral committee, Overseeing of the ministers and still singing for the Glory of the Lord in the choir, and teaching Sunday school.

It would be in 1987 Pastor Thomas would have to face the biggest steps to becoming one of Gods leaders. She would move to Clarksville, Tennessee from 1987-1994, grappling with where the Lord wanted her to be. 

Bright and Morning Star Church was started in the year of 2000. The church's first place of worship was held at Quality Inn in the conference room located on Riverside drive. Worship service was only held on Sunday mornings because of limited access to the conference room. Bright and Morning Star Church remained at The Quality Inn for 3 months from February 2000 to March 2000 but with much praying, fasting, and praising The Lord finally blessed us with another place of worship. A store front for Bright and Morning Star Church was soon opened at The Pet Plaza on Fort Campbell Blvd. Not long after The church body began to grow and extended itself more into the community. In April of 2003 Easter Sunday service was our first Sunday Service in the building that we have today. It is our  most fervent prayer that God will someday bless the body again with a church to call our own that will be more equipped to house, preach, and teach more of the growing community of Clarksville. Pastor Thomas has a vision and believes in a future for Bright and Morning Star Church. A future generation is growing within the youth of today for tomorrow's future. We thank God The Shepherd of our church Pastor Thomas and we thank God for Bright and Morning Star Church, the church of today and tomorrow. HALLELUJAH!!!!!
