The EFC of Cap-Haitien is a result of the outpouring of God's grace. In May 1994, six people met together to discuss the vision that God put in Henoc Lucien's heart during his time of studies in the United States.
Henoc grew up in the Baptist Church in Cap-Haitien. As a young person, he always had a thirst for something relevant. Many of his friends talked, even as teenagers, about the void in their lives. When Henoc returned to Haiti after college, he wanted to see that the physical, emotional, spiritual, and educational needs of people of Haiti were met. Those six met on a Saturday discussing their vision for ministry, what each believed, and then sharing a time of worship and prayer. Day by day, many people started coming to join them in the study. Most of them were people who did not yet know the Lord. Within 3 months, the Bible study grew to more than 100 people meeting in a living room. The group decided to rent a school where they continued to meet for the next three to four years. Within six months of moving to the school, the church grew to about 250 people.
The amazing thing about the EFC of Cap-Haitien is that over 90% of our members have come through conversion growth. They are people who have trusted Christ as a result of our sharing the Word of God with them. In 1999, during our Sunday morning service, our landlord informed us that this particular Sunday was our last day in his building. It was not until the following Saturday that the Lord provided a smaller place for us to meet. This also was a test of our faith. In less than a year, because of the fundraising efforts of the Evangelical Free Church women's ministry we were able to purchase the property that is now our campus. We praise Him for His provision. We aim to proclaim the message of the Gospel around the city of Cap-Haitien and to give every family the hope that can be found only in the Lord. We look at the different families who have been transformed, the young people who have found hope and we testify of His faithfulness. We look forward to what He will be doing through us during the years ahead.
