Model Hailey Bieber covers the March Issue of ELLE, and inside the magazine she opens up about her “faith” centered marriage to Justin Bieber.
Hailey and Justin are both devout Christians, and can be seen regularly attending the star-studded Hillsong Church in NYC.
She credits a mutual belief in God as the foundation for her relationship with Justin, whose mom is also born-again.
“Being able to share that with each other—to have that bond of faith and spirituality—is so [critical] for us. It’s the most important part of our relationship, following Jesus together, being a part of the church community together. It’s everything.”
She grew up attending a nondenominational church near Nyack, but it wasn’t until she moved to New York that she really got in touch with her own faith.
“As I got older, it got harder to follow church and the Bible because it felt very adult. I don’t want to sound wrong, but it was boring. I didn’t care about it anymore, until I found a church I felt was geared toward young people. And for me, that was the Hillsong Church in New York City.” She first attended at 16. “It started to feel like my own little community of people who were also young and following God and just immersed in a church community. Then I developed my own relationship to church and my own relationship with God, separate from being raised that way by my parents. That’s been a cool journey for me.”
