The Founder of Jesus Lives

Phil Fischer is an evangelist and founder of Jesus Lives, a non-profit evangelical mission’s organization based on Holy Spirit anointed worship and revival services.

Phil has no title.

Phil’s testimony of his upbringing alone at a very young age in the Alaskan wilderness and the ability God has given to him to reach out to the lost can be seen every Thursday night at 7:00 PM in Bellevue, Washington.

My Pastor, Varun Laohaprasit of New Hope International Church,  had always told me I had the gifting of evangelism, but I never wanted to evangelize or teach the word of God because I was embarrassed to talk about Jesus in front of people. Over the last two years, I have seen how the Holy Spirit changes people’s lives both here in the United States and overseas in countries like India and Thailand and the Middle East and in January of 2012 , The Holy Spirit began pushing me to leave the world of music and .com behind and to enter into evangelism.

It was a scary time for me letting my dreams go to sell Jesus but the Holy Spirit  revivaled to me that revival was going to break out in Seattle and to prepare.  This was further confirmed by a prophecy given to me by a Pastor from Bethel Church at the Azuza now conference after a 40 day fruit and vegitable fast.


After that prophecy,  God began to give me supernatural wisdom about the body of Christ, the current world situation, and how important it is to see lives being touched here in Seattle and around the world with true revival, and true worship.

Phil Fischer was the lead singer of The X Box Boys, one of the most downloaded rock bands on the internet in 2012. Phil also left behind his internet career to follow the call of Jesus and start a revival and prayer ministry in Seattle.

Phil’s teachings are from the Holy Spirit and never prepared. They emphasize a growing passion for Jesus through intimacy with God, doing evangelism and missions work preparing for the return of Jesus.

Phil is married with three small children and lives in Bellevue, Washington with his wife Jamael.

Phil’s music is distributed nationwide at Lifeway Family Christian Centers but his music is for free at

I was a bartender working in the Seattle nightlife scene and was living in constant sin without any true purpose or direction.  Just a selfish attitude and how I could get the most from life with the least amount of effort.

I was introduced to Jesus Lives about a year ago by Phil Fischer who is a man on fire for God and though his insistence, I started coming every week on Thursday nights and slowly began to change. I now get to lead Prayer and testimony.

Every Thursday Jesus started to get back into my life and I was slowly being blessed and transformed before I even realized what was going on. I want to be a part of what is happening here.

Jesus Lives!

phil’s testimony

There is a lot about my “old life” floating around, but none of that is important now.   I came to Christ in March of 2001 and it’s been a long road of changing continually.

For me just being in the presence of God and just sitting there at church was slowly changing me. I did not get it at first. I did not believe it at first. Even so, God was changing me and everytime I came into Christ’s presence I became cleaner.

I began to want to change. I slowly started to give up sins like drinking, smoking weed and cigarettes, and staying out all night looking for a good time.

Once I discovered that Jesus was the answer I was searching for, I began to attend a small care group in Bellevue, Washington where I came to know the Lord even closer. It was a small ministry much like this one.

I was shepherded by Neal & Mary Jo Calkins, who are the elders of our church.

I then began to serve in a small ministry in downtown Seattle as a helper called Amazing Grace.  The ministry/bible study met every Friday on second and Pine in Seattle at 7PM sharp.  Amazing Grace served the poor and neglected in downtown Seattle and as the years passed I moved onto leading worship and eventually God allowed me to teach the word in that small group of believers that reached out to the lost in Seattle. Every week God changed me and molded me. This is a process people, it does not happen at once.

I served in that ministry for eight years until it was closed by the leadership in 2008.

In the meantime, I was attending a mostly Thai and international church on Mercer Island named New Hope International Church.

During this time I pushed back into my music releasing my first Christian album and managed to move to #3 on MySpace and in 2012 I was the most downloaded Christian artist on MySpace but I never pursued it past that because slowly God began to move me away from my music into evangelism.

I did not want to be a part of the “music scene” anymore, which has turned into a pay for radio play system controlled by the enemy.

In 2012 and 2014 I began to go through a series of trials and God began to change me and mold me and I came out of that experience closer to God, closer to the call that he had on my life and I agreed in January of 2015 to start God’s ministry and try to reach the lost.

Many of us seeking an answer from the Lord heard about Lou Engle and Azuza now.  We fasted for 40 days on fruits and vegetables and on the day of the event in the rain several Pastors from Bethel Church prophesied to me through several Pastors that revival was going to break out in Seattle and I would be the father to the fatherless and to prepare for a huge endtime revival. 

They had never seen me before and had no idea we were from Seattle.  We are having faith in Jesus that God will do wonderful things with Jesuslives.

Please pray for us!  This ministry is currently meeting at New Hope International Church in Bellevue and we would love to see you Thursday evenings at 7:00 in the fireside room. We don’t have any rules, no agenda,  just 100% Jesus.

Yours in Christ,  Phil
