Don’t tell us that Hillsong worship Jesus. Don’t tell us that Hillsong are Christian.
The fact is this: Hillsong are Roman Catholic.
The truth is so plain to see when you watch the below video of Terry Crist explaining Hillsong’s role in their”worship music” and exposes an agenda behind the Hillsong’s annual musical conference in their attempt to unite Protestantism with the Roman Catholic Church.
Hillsong has picked their side and are deliberately working against Christianity, encouraging people to worship the god of Roman Catholicism. This is undeniable and is made perfectly clear if you choose to read all the resources and links available in this article.
ROMAN CATHOLICISM CONDEMNS THE CHRISTIAN FAITH
The Roman Catholic Church (RCC) condemned the Protestant Reformation at the Council of Trent in November of 1544. The RCC were reacting against Martin Luther’s writings on the gospel of salvation. Luther and many others were attempting to reform their church to the Word of God.
It was the Roman Catholic Church that anathematized (eternally damned/condemned) Martin Luther and the Reformers to hell by the authority of the “Apostolic” and “Divine” authority of the “infallible magisterium” of the Roman Catholic Church. This is why the Roman Catholic Church is another religion – not Christian. Their authority is in man – not God’s Word.
At the council of Trent they eternally damned anyone who held to the gospel of salvation or who opposed their man-made religion. Read more here:
Council of Trent: Canons on Justification
We’ve even alerted our readers to the fact that Roman Catholicism still holds to these errors that eternally damn people to hell.
“Some people promote an especially attractive idea: All true Christians, regardless of how they live, have an absolute assurance of salvation, once they accept Jesus into their hearts as “their personal Lord and Savior.” The problem is that this belief is contrary to the Bible and constant Christian teaching. The Bible makes it clear that Christians have a moral assurance of salvation… but the Bible does not teach that Christians have a guarantee of heaven. There can be no absolute assurance of salvation.” – Pillar of FIRE, Pillar of TRUTH, WYDSYD08, Published by Catholic Answers, Inc. 2008. [Source]
This is a false doctrine that was easily biblically refuted by the Protestant fathers. It was for protesting against this doctrine that the Roman Catholic church burned Protestants at the stake. It was this doctrine that made the RCC proclaim that the Protestant fathers were not Christian.
The Word of God teaches that the guarantee and the assurance of Heaven and eternal life is the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit in the person who stands on Jesus’ work on the cross of calvary. It is the scriptures on which the Protestant movement stands on. The Roman Catholic Church still relies on the infallibility of the Pope and its “traditions of men” as the final authority. Not the bible.
This is why the RCC is a cult – and not a Christian organisation: it is accountable to no one. They elevate their leaders’ proclamations above the word of God and claim to be infallible. They will even teach you this today:
“The magisterium is infallible when it teaches officially because Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to guide the apostles and the successors “into all truth” (John 16:12-13).” [Source]
HILLSONG CONVERTS TO ROMAN CATHOLICISM
You would notice the ‘Source’ link (Hillsong: This is war!) sends you to a previous article where Hillsong partakes in the Roman Catholic ‘World Youth Day’ event back in Sydney 2008.
Their Hillsong ‘UNITED’ band lead worship on the final night while Roman Catholic’s participated in their pagan Eucharist practice. Since witnessing Hillsong partake in this pagan event, we have been wondering for a long time when Hillsong would finally make that decision and “return home” to the whore of Babylon.
We don’t know when exactly Hillsong converted to Roman Catholicism. However, Terry Crist gives us valuable insight to how he saw Hillsong’s role in uniting Roman Catholics, Evangelicals and Hillsong believers together in the name of Jesus Christ.
Below, Crist shares this important information as part of the Hillsong family. Now, he and his church are proudly part of the Hillsong movement.
After listening to the video below, it’s undeniable:
Hillsong are Roman Catholic.
Hillsong embracing Roman Catholicism and the false social gospel (Part 1)
Hillsong embracing Roman Catholicism and the false social gospel (Part 2)
Hillsong embracing Roman Catholicism and the false social gospel (Part 3)
Hillsong embracing Roman Catholicism and the false social gospel (Part 4)
As Terry Crist informs us, Hillsong appears to have been working with the Roman Catholic Church behind the scenes to deceive Christians into being “united” with the pagan Roman Catholic Church? And how did they do this?
Through their Hillsong music and conferences.
Why else do you think their popular band is called ‘UNITED’?*
“I’m Dr Terry Crist, the senior Pastor of ‘City of Grace’ and the Chair for the ‘Governor’s Council of Faith and Community partnerships’. And I want to congratulate Dr Gary Kinnaman, Joe Tersini, Bishop Olmsted and Bishop Navaras for their extraordinary work in bringing together Catholics and Evangelicals. Something powerful happens when we rally around the person of Jesus.
Our church is a member of a global family of churches, called Hillsong. Our primary church is located in Sydney, Australia, where I’m preaching this weekend, otherwise I would be with you. And it’s been beautiful to see over the last few years how the Catholics around the world have lifted the songs of our church, and have begun singing them universally, songs like, ‘Shout to the Lord’ and ‘Mighty to save’.
In fact the demand for our kind of worship has become so popular in charismatic churches that are Catholic, over the last few years, we have actually offered a tract at Hillsong Conference for Charismatics, Catholics and Evangelicals to come together for worship. And it’s a beautiful thing to see what happens when we rally around the person of Jesus.
Isaiah 52, verse 8 says, ‘when the Watchman sing together, then they shall see eye to eye’. So many times we tend focus on what divides us, instead of the man who unites us. Jesus is that God man, who calls us all to himself, and when we respond to that something transcendent happens, something that unites us at a place so much deeper than just mere agreement. And out of that unity comes a shared mission, out of that comes a shared transformation, and that’s really at the core of my heart, my heart longs for the day when we work together and we worship together and out of that we transform our city together, to the glory of God.
It’s an honour to be on this journey with you, and I look forward to all that Jesus has prepared for us as we lean into Him, and we worship Him, and we explore our partnerships together, and I believe from that, for Phoenix, the best is yet to come.”

HILLSONG PUSHING CHRISLAM AGAIN
It is important to note that Roman Catholicism has for centuries embraced the Muslim faith as a legitimate Christian faith. This is from the Vatican’s own website:
The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.” [Source]
So you want to know why “Apostle” Terry Crist is so excited about joining the ecumenical, Roman Catholic/Hillsong movement? Here’s another reason why:
I just wrapped up a day and a half with a small group of evangelical pastors and about fifteen Muslim Imams/Sheikhs (from Egypt, Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia) talking about our beliefs, our religious differences, our common humanity and the need to protect religious and ethnic minorities around the world. Hard questions were asked and an honest dialogue began. I hope to continue that conversation with the local Imams for the sake of loving our neighbors, sharing my faith, advancing the common good of our community, and protecting religious freedom here and abroad. I’m planning to share a little more about this in my message on Sunday. Hope to see you there.
Photo cred and special thanks to Ps@BobRobertsJr and Ps @TylerJPHX for facilitating the conversations.

We’ve seen this type of “common” dialect before. (See the ‘A Common Word’ document.)
Remember – Terry Crist has been personally mentored and endorsed by Brian Houston and has even spoken at the Hillsong headquarters in Sydney. Crist is simply pushing Brian Houston’s ecumenical agenda in the local community to expand Hillsong’s music franchise.
And Crist is publicly pushing the Chrislam agenda of Hillsong which Brian Houston accidentally opened up about back in 2014:
Brian Houston: A skilled liar at work… or is it his critics?
HILLSONG IS NOT A CHRISTIAN CHURCH
It is important for Christians to realise that Hillsong is not a Christian church. They have aligned themselves with the Roman Catholic church. Hillsong’s god is no different to the god that the Babylonian king that forced Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to worship.
The difference Babylon and Hillsong’s god is this, Hillsong just slap ‘Jesus’ on their “golden image” and have upgraded their musical instruments for worship.
“Therefore at that time certain Chaldeans came forward and maliciously accused the Jews. They declared to King Nebuchadnezzar, “O king, live forever! You, O king, have made a decree, that every man who hears the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, shall fall down and worship the golden image. And whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast into a burning fiery furnace. There are certain Jews whom you have appointed over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These men, O king, pay no attention to you; they do not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.” Daniel 3:8-12
If you are not UNITED with Hillsong in worship and beliefs, according to many, you are not even considered a real or proper Christian. You’re the minority now. Shut up – and return to your dead religious church. You’ll hear the typical cult-like NAR phrases being spouted by Hillsong members, “God is doing a new thing… Look at the numbers of people on board with what God is doing… Who are you to judge… Why tear down what God is building up… Hillsong has been blessed by God…”
That’s how Hillsong’s authority (magisterium) works. Their authority (magisterium) is no different to the authority (magisterium) of the Roman Catholic Church.
If you are a critic of Hillsong, it seems you are beyond salvation. If you criticise Hillsong’s pope-king and to expose what deity it is they worship, this will result in you being demonised, accused of being un-Christ-like, jealous and “religious”. And we’ve seen Hillsong personally hunt people down, malign their character and throw them (figuratively) into their “furnace”.
You think that sounds extreme? The fact is people live in fear of the Hillsong mafia network in Australia. Just look how they treat people like Tanya Levin or speak of churches that question them or expose them of their unrepentant sins. According to Hillsong, people like Tanya Levin are beyond redemption. They’ve bent the knee to their constructed golden image, call all people together in a false unity and anathematized the Christian to the flames of Babylon.
We emplore our readers: stick to the hymns. Stick to the scriptures. Your faith is being maligned by wicked, apostate and apostate men who are forcing you through false worship to bend the knee to an idol and false god for their own self-promotion. Stand with Luther and others who opposed the religious animals of their day rather then bend the knee to their “golden image”:
“Here I stand. I can do no other.”
It is time we revive this popular saying characterising the Reformation so Christians can stand united in the Truth and expose the dangers of Catholic Hillsong:
“Sola Fide, Sola Scriptura, Solus Christus, Sola Gratia, Soli Deo Gloria…
The Roman Catholic Church and Hillsong condemn the above five solas. Yet this is how we need to stand against them and this is how we are to faithfully preach to those within:
“Salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone through grace alone as revealed in Scripture alone, for the glory of God alone.”
* UNITED – The New Order of the Latter Rain movement and the New Apostolic Reformation doctrine on worship teach that the pure worship is built when the church is UNITED. They use verses such as Psalm 133:1; John17:21; Psalm 22:3 and others like it. This is why Hillsong and other NAR church like C3 Church hold annual conferences that focus on UNITING denominations. They believe this is God restoring and uniting the church and bringing/ushering in and end-times revival.
The NOLR and NAR achieved this deception by deliberately constructing the Charismatic Renewal/Movement which dumbed down both Roman Catholic theology and Protestant theology to create a false unity. What the pope and the NARismatic movement have in common are their mystical/gnostic practices, infallible apostolic authorities and the doctrine of the theology of glory (prosperity theology).

This Terry Crist fellow going by this video is VERY BAD NEWS.
I would personally avoid THIS DECEIVER at all costs.
We are to unite together with others who are LIKEMINDED over TRUE BIBLICAL DOCTRINE.
Not unite with others REGARDLESS OF DIFFERENT DOCTRINES for some WARM FUZZY EXPERIENCE.
It is our TRUE CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE with respect to SALVATION that SETS US APART as Christians. We are the only ones NOT BASING OUR SALVATION ON OUR WORKS. Every cult trusts in THEIR WORKS.
Thus why would anyone want to go backward and UNITE REGARDLESS OF DOCTRINAL DIFFERENCES??
That makes absolutely no sense !!
Great report. Well done.
Excellent article. I have a dear Australian brother who is deeply deceived by Hillsongs. They so brilliantly weave darkness and light together by mentioning the”person of Jesus Christ,” yet they don’t really know that person because they NEVER mention the fact that he came to earth to pay for our sins with his blood, and that we must repent, turning to Him from our sin. All we here is silly, worldly chatter mixed with vain and emotional worship. As you noted, the only thing we know is true is the word, and we must all eat it, drink it and breathe it.
Why would Joseph Prince, the preacher of grace, join with Hillsong and Osteen, who have gone the way of Roman Catholicism? (Prince preaches at Hillsong and Osteen visited Pope Francis.)
How is it that some Christians believe this new ecumenism is a move of God, and other Christians think it’s a great apostasy?
Diana, nice website you have with many interesting looking articles. I for one will peruse through it. Thank you for posting your link to it…. 🙂
Awww… thank you for the kind words fred 210006.
AS WE, “LEAN IN” it seems to me the communist used a catch phrase simular to this it was “LEAN FOWARD” please don’t let these comic book christians indoctrinations deceive you. If you listen closely to what they are saying and you will hear the spirit behind the words and you will be able to make an accurate judgment and turn the other cheek and walk away never to return again. This article and so many of the other ones on this site are why I can’t go to church any more, actually here in america it isn’t a church, it’s now a 501c3 organization, which is yet another reason to stay away from them! Thank you CWC for site and the work you do
Its is refreshing to read these comments and articles exposing so much greed at Hillsong and C3. They are not any more a “church” than a local automobile garage. If sites like this were not exposing them, and thus they knew they were not under so much external scrutiny coming from outside their “church”, they would be left completely unchecked and their Prosperity Gospel would be making even more financial promises to their parishioners. Their lets-have-heaven-on-earth ‘god’ would be offering many more toys…. exotic cars, mansions, sudden mysterious bank deposits, divine health, etc for all faithful tithers.
This article is not based on any FACTS. What Crisp is saying has NOTHING to do with joining false doctrines. And everything to do with the fact that there are 10’s of thousands of people sitting in Catholic churches who need salvation. Hillsong or any other believers should realize that these people need to be reached. I am the first to admit the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church is screwed up and many won’t find God . But accusing Hillsong of following Catholic doctrine because Hillsong United samg at their event or because Crisp wants to “unite” us all under the banner of Jesus Christ is pathetic journalism at its best. The only reason you all think its a good article is because it fuels your current biases. I have been a Christiam for over 20 years and have attended Hillsong for 5. I am not in their leadership but i have NEVER heard misleading or false doctrine taught from the pulpit. I would be the FIRST to leave if it did! Instead of sitting in your glass houses throwing stones try sitting in a few services and see the facts!
What Hillsong church do you attend, Dierdre? Crisp has recently come under the Hillsong banner in Phoenix with much fanfare from Houston. As for misleading or false doctrine taught from the pulpit? It’s a weekly discernable event for those using an open bible rather than an open heart.
Cheers, Team ChurchWatch.
“but i have NEVER heard misleading or false doctrine taught from the pulpit.”
You havent heard any real biblical teachings coming from Hillsong either.
Never anything misleading huh? Do you “NEED MORE MONEY!!!” Deirdre, lol?
“i have NEVER heard misleading or false doctrine taught from the pulpit. I would be the FIRST to leave if it did!”
Unfortunately, you’re the LAST to catch on.
