JILF History

In the Philippines, in 1992, God gave Pastor Nestor a dream. In that dream he saw people with different colored hair. After much prayer and seeking, the Lord led him to come to the United States. Jesus is Lord Fellowship (JILF) was born in 1993 and started with a small all-Filipino group that gathered at Pastor Nestor’s apartment. The ministry was then called the Philippine Christian Fellowship and became affiliated with the Assemblies of God. Within a couple of years, JILF evolved into a multi-ethnic church as people from other races and culture joined the congregation. Today JILF continues to be a multi-cultural, community-oriented and multi-generational church serving Lakewood, Brick, Ocean Gate, Bayville, Beachwood, Barnegat, Manahawkin, Manchester, Jackson and Toms River.
