Church family, recently a number of people from our church have reached out to us asking about our position on COVID vaccines and whether they should take the vaccinations. In response to these questions we wanted to share some thoughts with you.
Firstly, we believe that vaccination is a medical rather than a spiritual issue and therefore we encourage you to do your own research and seek the advice of a medical professional you trust in helping make your decision.
Secondly, for those who have concerns about any spiritual implications of taking the vaccine, we believe taking the vaccine does not affect your spiritual well-being in any way.
It has saddened us to see this become a divisive issue across the world, in our nation, communities, churches and families. We encourage you to uphold unity, honour and respect for others irrespective of your position on Covid vaccines. As Christ followers, may we keep our eyes on Jesus and strive to walk in step with Him to reveal His compassion, grace, and love to a desperate, and hurting world. As Ephesians 4:3 urges us, may we be faithful to “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”
Let’s also continue to pray faith-filled prayers together for this pandemic to end and for all those negatively impacted by it to encounter the Prince of Peace, our God who is Healer and Provider.
