Our Mission

Primitive Haitian Church works to be a church whose heartfelt praise and worship touches heaven down to earth. We are a church that reaches out to people and introduces them to the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Our History


Pastor Francius and Lorette Pierre took responsibility of Primitive Haitian Church.


Before Haiti’s earthquake, our pastor had a vision to start our annual revival with the theme Vi’n Di Bondye Mesi Pou Tout Bagay (Give God Thanks For All Things). (1 Thessalonian 5:18)


PHC accomplished a major milestone in becoming an independent church while continuing partnerships with its many denominational affiliates.


PHC initiated its first efforts to support the local community by feeding the homeless in the DC region.

We love God. We believe in God.

“ Our 5 pillars of faith”

  • 1. We believe that the Old and the New Testament are words inspired by God.
  • 2. We believe that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are all equal and perfect.
  • 3. We believe that the imperative sacrifice of Jesus Christ has the complete total capacity to give us the necessary salvation to be saved.
  • 4. We believe that the dead in Jesus Christ shall resurrect and live eternally with Christ in paradise. And the unbelievers will resurrect on the day of judgment to live eternally in hell.
  • 5. We believe in the will, power, and the providence of God to fully supply all our needs in His service

Our Leadership

Our team of leaders truly believe in the saying that a leader’s actions are supposed to inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more. We work together to help individuals develop a keen relationship with Christ, and develop their God given talent to do God’s work. We truly strive to accomplish the mission that God has given us which is to “go and make disciples of all thenations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19)
