Members of a Huntington church say are being locked out and will fight for their right to worship.
The Bethesda Wesleyan Church congregants say the building's front gate has been padlocked and members say they feel betrayed and bullied by their church's regional leaders.
Members say the disagreement with the church's regional leaders began after Francois Pierre, the founding pastor, retired. Congregants say they refused to accept the new district-designated pastor and were locked out of the church because of it.
Efforts to reach the Wesleyan Church's district office Sunday were unsuccessful.
