“Justin Bieber may be the showbiz bad boy of the moment, but he was searching for some spiritual help in New York on Saturday night.
Multiple sources confirmed to us that Bieber was looking for a Manhattan property with a private pool to conduct a baptism-like ceremony with the Hillsong Church NYC.
One source said, “Justin and his team spent time on Saturday searching for a place with a pool where they could conduct a baptism for him, a cleansing ritual, with the Hillsong Church. But they couldn’t find a place in time.”
Another source added, “Justin is serious about his Christian faith, and after recent events, he needed to take a pause.”
Bieber, who is believed to have been baptized as a child, is a fan of the megachurch — which has conducted baptisms in the Gansevoort Hotel rooftop pool — and after attending a service at their Irving Plaza location last September, he tweeted about its hip leader, Pastor Carl Lentz: “Amazing sermon at church this morning. Love you man. I broke down today.”
Reps for Bieber and Hillsong didn’t comment.”
