Based upon my sincerely held religious beliefs as Pastor of GateWay Christian Center,
COVID 19 is a real virus that has the potential to make a person suffer sickness.
It poses little risk to young people and people who are in good physical health.
Those who have the COVID virus should do exactly what they would do if they had any other contagious virus and
stay away from other people and do everything necessary to regain good health.
The test (as of this writing) for the COVID virus is completely unreliable and is therefore
not a valid reason for quarantining an individual or group of people.
When someone in our congregation is sick, with any sickness, we will add them to our prayer list and
pray for them for total and complete healing.
We will not participate in Contact Tracing and
we will not make announcements about people who have tested positive in our congregation.
If you are sick with any virus including COVID, please stay at home and get well.
If you are in poor health and feel you are susceptible to infections,
do what your doctor tells you to protect yourself physically.
It is the opinion of this pastor that the COVID “pandemic” has been weaponized to control US citizens and
to, among other things, prevent families and churches from fellowshipping together.
To that end, GateWay Christian Center will continue to meet and fellowship as we are instructed to do in scripture.
My beliefs are based upon the following scripture:
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;
and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds,
not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
II Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and discipline.
