Pop star Justin Bieber has denied reports that he is training to enter the ministry at Hillsong Church.
The "Holy" singer, who is a Christian, also denied even being a member of the church in an update via his Instagram Stories.
"I'm not studying to be a minister or anything even close to that," he wrote.
His message was pasted across a screenshot of a story that ran in Page Six last week quoting an unnamed source in OK! magazine who said he wanted to be a "full-fledged minister next year".
Clarifying the reports, Bieber said he has "no desire for that" and that the report is "fake news".
The 26-year-old then added: "And btw Hillsong is not my church...for clarity I am part of Churchome."
Churchome is the online church led by his best friend and pastor Judah Smith.
Bieber then told his fans that "church is not a place" and that he doesn't "need a building to connect with God."
"God is with us wherever we are," he wrote.
