The Church of Pentecost has stated clearly that it is not against the administration of COVID-19 vaccines duly approved by the regulatory agencies of various countries.

This was after some Ministers and members raised concerns about the developed covid-19 vaccine and the attendant myths and controversies surrounding it.

In response, the church put together a COVID-19 Technical Committee, made of experts with diverse background including Theologians, Pharmacists, Clinicians, Public Health Consultants, Lawyers, Psychologists, Social Workers etc. to evaluate the myths and controversies surrounding the development, distribution and administration of the COVID 19 vaccines, and make recommendations to assist the leadership of the Church take a position, and properly guide the church public on the subject matter.

Upon further deliberations on the committee’s work and extensive consultations with Ministers and other experts, the Church stated it is obvious the conspiracy theories cannot be substantiated and are not sustainable.

“It is therefore the view and position of the Executive Council that The Church of Pentecost is not against the administration of COVID-19 vaccines duly approved by the regulatory agencies of the various countries,” COP stated.

It added that,”This position does not take the right of individual members to either accept or refuse a vaccine based on their own personal reasons.”

Meanwhile, the Church has discouraged Ministers, officers and members from using the platforms of the Church to fuel and promote myths, controversies and falsehood to misinform people and members on the usefulness and benefit of COVID 19 vaccines.
