Bro. Carling Flores stayed in Pandan, Antique for 4 years until he arrived at a good old age.

EFC-Iloilo, formerly known as EFC-Jaro, was planted in 1994 at Brgy. Quartero, Jaro, Iloilo City. Road widening and floods during rainy season caused much hassle to the church that it finally decided to transfer after 20 years in Jaro. The church moved to a building space at Ortiz Street, Iloilo City. The new place was comfortable but not spacious enough to hold more people. The water system was another inconvenience. For the next two and a half years, the church prayed and waited for God’s next move.
The mighty warrior Joshua, whose exploits in God continue to shine today, began his humble training as a youth. Just like him, the present generation of young warriors are eager to pledge their faithful devotion, active obedience, and unwavering commitment to the call of Almighty God. Gone are the days of folly, wander, and backsliding. Today’s end-time warriors seize their destiny as their mouths confess, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord…today!”
