Together we are a community of believers. What does that mean, the word community? We believe that together in fellowship we grow closer to God and one another. The bible speaks about iron sharpening iron. We believe that together we grow stronger. We are a community of believers. 


We strive to be a church without walls. Jesus calls for us to go outside the walls to reach the lost and the broken. It is there that the lost will be found. Most churches find it is comfortable to stay within the walls, but we make it an effort to be like the church from the book of Acts, to see our city changed.


We highly value our relationships with one another. We look to grow through fellowship, and ultimately growing closer to God. We value the word of God, and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We look to extend grace to all of the lost and broken, and lead those with no hope to the hope of Jesus Christ.



In the Phillipines 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 the Toms River area.
