About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

Jesus Is Lord Church has one goal: to share God’s message of love & salvation through Jesus Christ with the world. We want everyone to have an opportunity to know the real Jesus. Approachable, personable, compassionate, and full of joy- that’s the Jesus that Pastor Kevin and First Lady Olga McGuinness know and love. It’s their mission in life to make sure everyone on every continent has an opportunity to know Jesus too.


Through world-wide television broadcasting, ministry audio, visual resources, digital media, Christian literature internet outreach, and meetings held across the globe, Pastor Kevin McGuinness is reaching out with the Gospel in a way that is captivating the lost and turning hardened hearts back to their first love. Most of all, it is our hope that people will realize the freedom and joy that comes from being at peace with God and in love with His Son, Jesus.


At the Jesus Is Lord Church we’re committed to keeping our focus uncluttered—pure and simple, just like Christianity is supposed to be.


We’re proud to have one vision, one goal, one mission changing lives.


It’s our passion. And, we invite you to join with us and make it your passion too!

Where we come from

The Jesus Is Lord Church was established in 1981 by founding Pastors, Apostle Tom and Liz McGuinness in an 850 square foot facility with a few faithful believers. Today, the Jesus Is Lord Church has expanded to our current facility which is over 27,000 sq ft. with a congregation of over 500 people committed to making a local as well as a global impact. The Jesus Is Lord Church has been serving the Long Island community for over 40 years transforming lives and sharing the love of Jesus Christ to all.

As of September 2015, Pastor Kevin and Lady Olga McGuinness ­­have served as the Senior Pastors and continue to forward the work alongside with Pastor Liz.

Where we're headed

By the grace of God, we will raise up a revival generation of people, co-laboring in a unified and balanced pursuit of the Great Commission of our Lord, Jesus Christ. While targeting the multi-ethnic, multi-cultural Long Island area we desire to effectively minister to people of diverse social, economic and ethnic backgrounds. We will unite them in God’s love and purpose by preaching and the teaching of the “uncompromising” Word of God.


We will employ both traditional and progressive methods that include, but are not limited to; weekly worship services, crusade evangelism, media ministry and creative outreaches for children, teens, young adults & seniors. We will endeavor to share our victorious lives in Christ Jesus with our world. Our energy and resources will focus on developing a harvesting and healing oasis in the Long Island and the tri-State area empowering this local congregation to be living witnesses of Christ’s Resurrection power in every place.
