Eglise Baptiste du Calvaire is located right off the 495 Beltway, Exit 28A, at 10002 Riggs Road, Adelphi, MD 20783.

Eglise Baptiste du Calvaire started in early 1977 as an outreach mission of the French Speaking Baptist Church of Brooklyn, New York. Pastor Joseph Theodore, late Sister Lydia Edouard (a.k.a. Soeur Demet), Brother Roosevelt Michell, and Pastor Jean St-Ulmé led this mission to minister to a bourgeoning Haitian population in Washington, D.C. and its Maryland suburbs. The first official meeting was held on October 16, 1977 in the basement of Israel Philogène. Later on, the meetings were held at the National Baptist Church of Washington D.C. Hence, the First Evangelical Church of Washington D.C. was born and was led by the late Rev. Arthur Bonhomme.

Eglise Baptiste du Calvaire is a growing Haitian church in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area. Our services are conducted mainly in Creole but French and English are used as well.

The church has outreach missions in Hagerstown-Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky and California.

Our beliefs

  • We believe in the personal Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit equal in Divine Perfection. (Mt.28:19; 1 Jn5:7-8; 2Cor13:13)

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, fully human and fully Divine, equal to the Father. He was crucified for our sins and He has risen for our justification. (Mt. 1:23; Ph. 2:5-11; Jn.10:30)

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is God, and that He is a person equal to the Father and the Son. He is permanently present in the world since His official coming on the day of the Pentecost, to administrate the Church until its rapture. (Jn.14:16-18; Acts 2:1-4, 33; 5:3-4; 2Thes.2:4-7)

  • We believe in the plenary verbal inspiration and inerrancy of the entire Bible as originally written and that the Bible is the all significant rule of faith and practice. (2Tim 3:16-17; 2Pe:20-21; Ps. 119:11, 105, 160).

  • We believe that the depraved alien sinner is saved wholly by the grace through faith in Jesus Christ. (Acts 16:31; Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8-9)

  • We believe that all who trust Jesus Christ for salvation are eternally secured in Him and shall not perish. (Jn.3:16; 10:27-30; 1 Pe. 1:5)

  • We believe that those who are saved must and will abide in the faith as a proof that they were really saved. (Heb. 10: 36-39; 11:35-40)

  • We believe that there are two principal ordinances in the Lord's churches: A) Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Biblical baptism is by immersion of the believers in water. Math.3:13-16; 28:19-20; Acts 2:38-41; 8:12, 36-40); B) the Lord's supper is a memorial ordinance which recalls the death of the Lord for the atonement of our sins. Math.26:26-29; Luc 22:19-20; 1Cor.11:23-29)
