About Our Church
Philadelphia Haitian Baptist Church began in 1988 as five families met in winter haven to have a Bible study. This Bible study grew into a community of believers who helped others enter into the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit. This was a time in church history when the Jesus Movement was in full swing and church were receiving more. Philadelphia incorporated in 1995 and affiliated in by the Florida Baptist Convention.
Leveque Xavier is the founding pastor of Philadelphia Haitian Baptist Church today. Our current senior pastor Jean Junior Francois has been with us since 2019. The mission of the church to create a culture where the commandments of Jesus would be a reality in everyday life is an ongoing goal that is adapted and taught in each new generation of people who come to build this dream.
We exist to impact our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
