This year, the Phoenix campus of Hillsong church hosted the apostate Alpha Conference — an ecumenical, emergent conference that seeks to unify all the various faiths under one umbrella — and it isn’t Biblical truth. According to the conference website, the event being hosted at Hillsong is featuring Mike Schmitz is a Catholic priest, author, and speaker in the Diocese of Duluth, MN who is ” the author of the Belonging study program and is the primary personality in Ascension Presents, weekly YouTube videos offering Catholic perspectives of cultural and societal issues.”
Hillsong Church is a hotbed for heresy–a celebrity-minded prosperity gospel Sunday morning entertainment venue where you can go to have your week’s fill of self-adulation with — by any discernible standard — no Biblical teaching or exhortation.
Hillsong Church has millions of followers who have made their Laodicean church corporation wealthy beyond their wildest dreams. Over the past few years, Hillsong has gone from a mildly worldly group that won Grammy awards, to a full-blown snakepit of apostasy and heretical teachings.
“Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.” Jeremiah 14:14 (KJV)
February was quite the month for Hillsong Church. In the space of just two short weeks, they issued a formal statement affirming the LGBTQ, sponsored their ecumenical Alpha conference promoting a One World Religion, and had a priest hold a Roman Catholic mass. People attending this event were told that this false doctrine was “advancing the kingdom”. Think about that the next time you plunk down your hard earned dollars downloading their music. Your support of this Laodicean mess makes their “ministry” possible.
“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.” Revelation 3:15-18 (KJV)
Read the official Hillsong Church statement below on how they “don’t preach against any group”, something they call the “heartbeat of God”. Funny thing, though, when you read the Bible you see God preaching against all sorts of people and against all kinds of groups that have aligned themselves against the revealed word of God.
Hillsong Affirms Their Pro-LGBT Stance In Statement Released Yesterday
FROM REFORMATION CHARLOTTE: In the wake of a recent attack by celebrity Ellen Page against Chris Pratt, an attendee of Hillsong Church, who called Pratt’s church “infamously anti-LGBTQ,” Hillsong released a statement denying this.
Of course, Hillsong isn’t anti-LGBTQ — “we are an inclusive Christian church that loves, values and welcomes all people, regardless of their background, ethnicity, beliefs, values, or personal identity” — says the church who allowed open homosexuals to lead their choir. READ MORE
Official Hillsong Church Statement On LGBTQ Inclusion:
HILLSONG CHURCH LOVES ALL PEOPLE.
WE WOULD LIKE TO CLARIFY AND CORRECT THE FOLLOWING MISINFORMATION THAT HAS APPEARED IN SEVERAL MEDIA OUTLETS RECENTLY:
HILLSONG CHURCH DOES NOT PREACH AGAINST ANYONE OR ANY GROUP; WE ARE NOT ‘ANTI-ANYONE’. WE ARE AN INCLUSIVE CHRISTIAN CHURCH THAT LOVES, VALUES AND WELCOMES ALL PEOPLE, REGARDLESS OF THEIR BACKGROUND, ETHNICITY, BELIEFS, VALUES, OR PERSONAL IDENTITY.
WE ARE ALSO A CHURCH THAT ADHERES TO MAINSTREAM BIBLICAL VALUES SHARED BY THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN CHURCHES AROUND THE WORLD, AND MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS ACROSS THE USA. BELIEVING THE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE AND LOVING ALL PEOPLE – INCLUDING THOSE WHO HAVE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES – ARE NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE. IN FACT THIS IS THE VERY DEFINITION OF TOLERANCE AND INCLUSIVENESS.
HILLSONG CHURCH WAS FOUNDED IN 1983 BY OUR SENIOR PASTORS, BRIAN AND BOBBIE HOUSTON AND IN ALL THOSE YEARS PASTOR BRIAN HAS BEEN A VOCAL OPPONENT OF GAY CONVERSION THERAPY AND HAS MADE IT CLEAR TO OUR PASTORS THAT WE DO NOT SUPPORT THAT APPROACH.
AT HILLSONG WE WANT TO BE KNOWN BY WHO WE ARE FOR. WE ARE FOR PEOPLE FINDING HOPE IN JESUS, WE ARE FOR PEOPLE FINDING LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE, AND WE ARE FOR HELPING PEOPLE IN ANY WAY WE CAN. OUR FOCUS IS ON POINTING PEOPLE TO JESUS AS “THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE”. NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, WHEN YOU ENTER OUR DOORS, YOU WILL BE GREETED WITH A SIGN THAT SAYS, ‘WELCOME HOME’. THAT IS THE HEARTBEAT OF HILLSONG CHURCH. INDEED, THAT IS THE HEARTBEAT OF GOD. SOURCE

Most people know Hillsong through their swaths of ear-tickling music that’s poured out of their multiple campuses and celebrity bands throughout the world — a money-making machine for sure. Whether it be their sleazy rendition of Silent Night during Christmas, their posing of a nearly naked man on stage at a women’s conference, its cover-ups of pedophile pastors, having openly homosexual worship leaders, defending abortion, complaining about the death penalty, or the fact that celebrities love them because they “don’t teach that book with Moses and stuff,” one thing is for sure, Hillsong is an outright dangerous threat to churches around the world.
