Church of God paying $274,000 in fines, but Pastor Hildebrandt vows to keep fighting

Pastor Henry Hildebrandt from the Church of God in Aylmer, Ontario has been an unwavering voice of discernment throughout the COVID pandemic. Early on, he began to question the governmental response to this virus that forbade his congregation from gathering and worshipping — something he felt they needed more than ever before in unprecedented times.

Despite threats from law enforcement, health bureaucrats and local residents, Pastor Hildebrandt has refused to bow to the powers that be who are attempting to trample his God-given constitutional rights to freedom of assembly and freedom of religion. He has continued to preach, and alongside the support of his congregation, his church has continued to gather and worship.

This dissent has come with hefty repercussions. In May, state sanctioned locks were placed on the church, which forced them to continue their services outdoors. But now, the locks have been removed and the church returned to its rightful owners — the community.

I caught up with Pastor Hildebrandt at the World Wide Freedom Rally to get an update on his situation and discuss the egregious fines he had to pay just to regain access to his church. His message remains unwavering: the jig is up when we stand united.

The Church of God, just south of Steinbach, MB, has met the cold rubber of Brian Pallister’s cold boot.

On Sunday, the widely disliked premier dispatched uniformed officers with “Manitoba Justice” emblazoned on their backs to the small church in the countryside.

The Church of God cancelled indoor services this weekend, out of an abundance of caution. Instead, church leadership asked congregants to remain in their vehicles outside, and tune in to 88.5 FM.

Over the radio and in the safety of their cars, churchgoers listened to the weekly sermon. The church’s minister preached to the gathered faithful about the origin of liberty, and that rights pre-exist government and are granted to men by God.

It was a short service, but the way the province saw it, their disobedience could not go unpunished. And punished they were. Over $6,000 dollars in fines were issued to the church and its minister, Tobias Tissen.

Prior to Sunday, Tissen was threatened with 12 months of imprisonment for practicing his religion, in a letter issued by the province.

The RCMP did not decide to arrest Tissen, which is when the Manitoba Health and Manitoba Justice (both departments directly reporting to Premier Pallister’s cabinet) moved in to issue their vindictive punishment.

This comes a week after pollsters announced Brian Pallister is the most disliked premier in Canada, and days after Pallister called every Manitoban who didn’t agree with him “an idiot.

A minister in southeastern Manitoba has been issued two separate tickets for failing to comply with COVID-19 regulations.

Tobias Tissen is with Church of God, located off Highway 12, about nine miles south of Steinbach. On Monday, he was visited by several RCMP officers and provincial officers who issued him two tickets worth $1,296 each. The visit was filmed by Tissen and shared on Facebook.

In the video, the officers identified that the first ticket was for attending a large gathering. The gathering they are referring to is the anti-mask protest held in Steinbach on November 14th. The second ticket was for failing to comply with a public health emergency order under the Public Health Act. This was with respect to the fact his church held a service on November 22 with well over 100 people in attendance.

“I’m drawing very close similarities to the Gestapo in Germany. I’m from Germany, my ancestors are from there,” says Tissen in the video. “And what you are doing is very similar, enforcing laws that are making the citizens vulnerable, losing sleep, making them stressful. And I pray to God that one day all these unjust things will be straightened. And I’m confident that it will.”

Meanwhile, the province today provided an update on enforcement related to the protest held in Steinbach on November 14. To date, 16 tickets have been sworn and more are expected to receive tickets as the investigation continues. One person who attended a subsequent event at the Legislative Building in Winnipeg on November 21 was identified and served with a ticket for their participation in the earlier event.

According to the province, enforcement officials are also investigating the church service held over the weekend. It says, one individual received a $1,296 ticket and more tickets for other participants are expected as the investigation continues.
