Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber are reportedly a couple. They are also both reportedly Christians who not only profess faith in Jesus, but have shared a long friendship and spent time together at Hillsong Church. Is this Hollywood’s latest Christian couple?
Hailey Baldwin’s father, Stephen Baldwin, is one of Hollywood’s foremost and outspoken Christian evangelists. There is no denying his beliefs and he doesn’t seem to be hiding anything to appease Hollywood. As Stephen Baldwin has been a close protector of his daughter, Hailey, and seemingly a spiritual adviser of sorts to Justin Bieber, it will be interesting to see how faith impacts Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s relationship.
Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber were rumored to be dating last summer, and according to Page Six, they flew to Australia together to attend a Hillsong conference for five days. Hailey Baldwin has publicly supported Justin Bieber and has stated that he has made many changes in his life.
“This past year [Justin] has made a lot of big changes in his life,” Baldwin stated to Page Six. “He’s really a good person and I don’t think everybody knows that side of him. I think he’s trying to get everybody to know that’s who he really is.”
“He’s one of the most caring and most polite people I know,” she also said to the publication.

In the video below, you can see Justin Bieber as he meets Stephen Baldwin for the first time. Justin Bieber is on his way to a Today Show taping and Stephen Baldwin introduces him to his daughter Hailey. In the video, Justin Bieber states he just met Stephen Baldwin who had handed him a Christian DVD that he produced: Livin’ It LA.
According to the Christian Post, Livin’ It LA was one of two skateboarding evangelistic tools Stephen Baldwin produced for Luis Palau’s ministries.
“Jesus is cool, ministry leaders are telling crowds of skaters in a new phenomenon of evangelism. A new report on Christians’ outreach efforts revealed giant skate parks as new venues for preaching the gospel.
“Just last weekend, hundreds of thousands got to see live sports demos with pro skaters doing 360 flips and kickflips at Luis Palau’s evangelistic festival in Houston. The Associated Press reported skater outreaches to be described by some as “one of Christianity’s newest, hippest and largest means of evangelization.”
It’s interesting to look back on this old video of Stephen Baldwin, Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber and realize that all these years later, the two have shared their faith, friendship, and are now reportedly in a relationship together. Justin Bieber is a skater and to witness Stephen Baldwin hand him an evangelistic DVD used to witness Christianity to skaters makes one wonder just how influential Stephen Baldwin and Hailey have been in Justin’s life over the years. It’s no secret that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have been friends for a long time. Justin Bieber may have dated Selena Gomez off and on for years, but could it be that Hailey Baldwin is the girl who will keep Justin Bieber grounded, closer to Jesus and on the Christian path?
In the video below you can see Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin jamming with Pastor Brian Houston of Hillsong Australia.
Though the audio is quiet, you can see in this video where Pastors Carl and Laura Lentz are joined by Justin Bieber for an interview backstage after the Hillsong conference.
In this video, you can see Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin as they play SuperBowl games, reportedly at the home of Pastors Carl and Laura Lentz.

It’s important to realize that not only have Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber frequented the Lentz’ residence and church, but so have the Jenner girls: Kylie and Kendall. Rumors and gossip repeatedly link Justin Bieber to Kylie Jenner or Kendall Jenner, but photos and videos show them together with Hillsong pastors. Has Justin Bieber simply been enjoying a close friendship with the Jenners and Kardashians, making all the rumors stating otherwise just rumors?
