Cuban Church Closed on Easter

LOS ANGELES (Compass) -- Cuban government authorities closed a Baptist church in a Havana suburb on Easter Sunday. Members of the church must comply with the April 23 closure order or face fines or a court trial for contempt, said a pastor of another denomination who spoke on condition that his name not be used. He said that the closed church is affiliated with Cuba's Western Baptist denomination, a sister denomination of the Southern Baptist Convention in the United States.
