Musician Justin Bieber took the stage at Churchome in Los Angeles recently, where he sang "Never Would Have Made It" and shared personal testimony.

What are the details?

According to TMZ, Bieber sang the lyrics to Marvin Sapp's "Never Would Have Made It."

The church's lead pastor, Judah Smith, also talks about Bieber, and the pop star using his talent to glorify the Lord.

"We first met Justin in Toronto and he's always been a worshipper," he said. "It's a lot of who he is. I want him to be a part of the church where everyone gets a fair share to contribute to the community ... who am I to stand in the way of someone who clearly has a gift to lead worship?"

Bieber told the congregation that he was initially nervous to perform in front of it.

"I've kinda not done this because I felt, like ... I just don't want people to think, like, this is a show," he said.

Bieber also shared a video on Instagram, and captioned it with his admission of a "hard season."

"Sang at church last night. God is pulling me through a hard season. Having trust in Jesus at your worst times is the absolute hardest. But he is faithful to complete what he started," he wrote. "I also want to thank my wife for being such a huge support in my life through this season.. it says in the bible count it ALL JOY when you face trials of various kinds."

"Sounds insane considering when u face trials u feel terrible," he reasoned. "But if we are grateful and worship god for what we do have in that season there is so much power in that... whatever pain you are going through just keep telling yourself THIS WONT LAST! Love you guys we in this together."

What else?

TMZ also caught up with the pop star on Thursday after he led worship at the Los Angeles church.

Bieber said that performing at church was way more nerve-wracking than performing in a concert for thousands of fans.

"My whole message at church the other day was 'There's power in your weakness,' so when you feel weak — there's so many people in this world that are struggling — there's just power in weakness," he said. "When you fight through that season, you usually get to the other side and it gets better."
