First Biblical Baptist Church formerly known as First Haitian Baptist Church of Palmetto was founded in 1990 under the leadership of Rev. Luc Francois and his wife Marie O. Francois.Its roots is from Cuba where Pastor Luc Francois was born on October 5, 1934. His Father Gelome Francois relocated to Haiti in 1960 and settling in the region of Les Irois. Past. Luc under the unction of the Holy Spirit decidedly moved to the United Stated to pave a better future for his wife and children. Once God planted the seed in his mind he became restless with the idea of erecting a church building in America. Though he didnít know where exactly God would take him, he stayed on course and settled in Manatee County under the divine guidance of the Holy Spirit where this church was built. Pastor Luc is a man of God, a man of faith, a man of character, a visionary, a great father, and a great leader. With the help of the Holy Spirit, he led many to Jesus Christ and some are now pastors of their own church.
