A revered, yet controversial Louisiana pastor followed through on a 'vow' to continue holding public services and hosted an in-person Easter Sunday service, attended by almost 2,000 people.

According to TMZ, Reverend Tony Spell, 42, claimed that 1,345 people attended his Sunday service at the Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The service was also streamed live on Facebook, although assistant ministers and worshippers barred reporters from coming inside.

"Satan and a virus will not stop us," Spell previously told Reuters. "God will shield us from all harm and sickness. We are not afraid."
