Is the COVID vaccine the mark of the beast?

Do you have questions about whether or not you should take the COVID-19 vaccine as a Christian? Concerned about social media posts that link the vaccine to the sign of the anti-Christ? To help you navigate these and other questions, we are sharing these short videos from a helpful website developed by several churches and Christian organizations, in partnership with the U.S. National Association of Evangelicals.
