“that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and under earth”
Philippians | 2:10
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 was born in 1992 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 years, JILF evolved into a multi-cultural, community-oriented and multi-generational church serving Lakewood, Brick, Ocean Gate, Bayville, Beachwood, Barnegat, Manahawkin, Manchester, Jackson and Toms River.
