Baptist Convention of Western Cuba or Convención Bautista de Cuba Occidental is an association of cooperating Baptist churches in western Cuba. The first Cuban Baptists were patriots who were exiled to the United States during the Ten Years’ War (1868–1878). Some became Baptists while in the U. S. , and later returned to Cuba. Exile Albert Díaz joined a church in New York City. He returned to Cuba in 1882, and organized an independent congregation at Havana in 1883.
