On Monday, he told his fans in an Instagram story that he is a member of Churchome, not Hillsong Church.
He cleared the air after rumors swirled that he is studying to become the newest pastor of Hillsong Church in the wake of Carl Lentz‘s November 2020 firing.
Lentz baptized Bieber years ago and was once his spiritual confidant.
A Page Six article claims Beiber is “reportedly studying to be a minister” for Hillsong. However, the 26-year-old denied the report,
“I’m not studying to be a minister or anything even close to that. Have no desire for that. This is fake news.”
“And btw Hillsong is not my church… For clarity I am a part of Churchome.”
Bieber posted a third Instagram story saying, “Church is not a place. We are the church.” “We don’t need a building to connect with god.”
In his Instagram feed he showed his faith saying, “God is with us wherever we are.”
Bieber thought he had to clarify the situation following rumours he is with the other church.
This comes just several months after Lentz was fired at Hillsong for “moral failings.”
“I was unfaithful in my marriage, the most important relationship in my life and held accountable for that,” Lentz revealed in November.
“This failure is on me, and me alone and I take full responsibility for my actions,” Lentz said.
