About the Organization:

Daystar Church is a nondenominational church worshipping in three campuses in cities throughout North Alabama. Our mission is to see community transformation through the love and power of Jesus. We are fueled by great faith as we've seen God do things that only He can do. We have seen lives changed, marriages restored, families healed, and hearts made whole.

As God continues to increase the size of our platform, we are aggressively pursuing opportunities to reach more and more people with the Gospel. We are striving and praying for our reach to impact others, not only in Alabama, but also throughout the entire world. Through the use of preaching, worship, and creativity, we aim to present the timeless message of Christ in a clear and fresh way. Although our approach to church might not be traditional, we believe in and maintain a conservative theological position.

Our church can be summed up in three words: REAL. LOVE. NOW.
