Statement on Religious Exemption to Mandatory Medical Procedures
Harvest Baptist Church, in commitment to the doctrinal standards of our statement of faith and practices outlined in our church constitution and the supremacy of the Holy Scriptures, solemnly affirm our religion’s principles of liberty of conscience, honouring and preserving human life from conception to natural death, as well as the sovereignty of individuals and families in medical and healthcare decision-making. Our desire according to 1 Timothy 2:1-3 is to "lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty" and thus accommodate the requests and direction of governmental and other authorities, where they do not violate the moral principles of God's Word and the commands of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, we state our unequivocal support for the right of refusal of mandatory medical procedures, whether ordered by a branch of civil government, an employer, or any other institution to which an individual is subject or dependent— in the event that an individual sincerely believes his or her life, health, wellbeing, or morality is potentially threatened by such procedures or products, or in the event that a parent has the same concern for his or her child.
We affirm that our Christian religion protects the liberty of individuals and families to refuse any medical procedure or product on the basis of sincerely held concerns for known or unknown side effects, experimental or emergency uses, potential issues in development or testing, or medical and/or political corruption or coercion.
We also affirm that this exemption is in keeping with section 2 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Alberta Human Rights Act which grants accommodation based on religious beliefs.
Therefore, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we defend the rights and responsibilities of our members to research these issues in consultation with their medical providers in order to make responsible medical decisions for themselves, including refusing vaccination or gene therapies on religious grounds. And we hereby call upon all governments, schools, employers, and other institutions to respect these deeply held religious convictions by upholding this religious liberty and/or providing religious exemptions as requested.
