Exclusive: Rick Warren Church Has Blacks Only Worship: No White Members Allowed

Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church has invited “African American and/or Black Members” and their spouses of any ethnicity to attend a special gathering with racial trauma experts, with non-spousal white church members being asked to pray for the event, but to stay away.

Warren sent the invite out to members informing them that “We don’t want to be a church that just talks about love, that just studies love, that just defines love, that just prays about love. It’s not enough to just say we love people. We have to show love.

With Saddleback’s many campuses still closed, and with no plans to reopen any time soon (the opposite of loving people in their church), the special gathering is happening via Zoom and is being virtually hosted by Pastor Anthony Miller and Dr. Anita Phillips.

Miller is the communications pastor at Saddleback and Phillips is the Trauma-expert. As one might expect, Phillips is a theological mess and deeply compromised. She promotes and partners with Trinity-denying Heretic TD Jakes, retweeting out his material and being a speaker at his “Woman Thou Are Loosed” masterclass. When she’s not doing that, she’s hosting In the Light Podcast, which is a smorgasbord of divisive, gospel-redefining critical race theory talking points.

The announcement continues:

Our worship team has also arranged a one-of-a-kind gospel experience. We want this to be a safe space for our Black brothers and sisters to heal and be fed mentally, emotionally, and spiritually by their church family heading into the new year…

Worshipping next to a person with white skin is not safe? Congregational worship is not healing or edifying when there are white folk around? What fresh hell is this? Does Saddleback believe white brothers and sisters are giving black members the heebie-jeebies on account of their melanin?

Furthermore, keep in mind this is a Zoom call. No one is even in the same room. This is some next-level divisiveness that the church is facilitating black members needing a virtual “safe space” to have their “gospel experience” so that they can “heal” away from the lighter skinned congregants.” God forbid there might be white members sharing bandwidth with black members and streaming the same thing.

Notice also how Saddleback singles out “African American” members as privy to this evening of racial healing and that other “persons of color” like Asians, Hispanics, Latinos will have to content themselves with staying away from this blacks-only service and hanging out with the whities in prayer? To wit:

For everyone else in our church family, I invite you to pray that God will use this night to begin the healing process that leads to true fellowship in our church family, and that God will begin the ministry of reconciliation in all of us as we head into new waters in the new year.

True fellowship and reconciliation do not occur within a body by having a “Blacks-only service” or a “Latino-only service” or a “Whites-only service.”

Rather, true fellowship occurs when you denounce these hellish, racist, race-baiting filthy rags as the satan-stained damnable doctrine that it is, and instead have every tongue, tribe, and nation worship together as one in Jesus Christ, irrespective of race, gender, age, socioeconomic status, or any other artificial divider the world might think up.

We’ve reached out to the Church for a comment and will update this post accordingly.

Dear Saddleback Family,

We don’t want to be a church that just talks about love, that just studies love, that just defines love, that just prays about love. It’s not enough to just say we love people. We have to show love.

I can’t wait to share with you my vision for next year, and how we’re going to continue loving and serving people who are in pain. But right now, before the year is over, we’re starting with our Black brothers and sisters. 

So if you are an African American and/or Black member of Saddleback (and spouses, no matter your ethnicity), you are invited to a special Zoom gathering Monday night December 14, at 6:00 PM with me, Pastor Anthony Miller, and Dr. Anita Phillips, racial-trauma expert and host of the In the Light podcast. Our worship team has also arranged a one-of-a-kind gospel experience. We want this to be a safe space for our Black brothers and sisters to heal and be fed mentally, emotionally, and spiritually by their church family heading into the new year. Click here to register and receive the link.

For everyone else in our church family, I invite you to pray that God will use this night to begin the healing process that leads to true fellowship in our church family, and that God will begin the ministry of reconciliation in all of us as we head into new waters in the new year.

I love you and miss you every day!

  1. This is a violation of Isaiah 1:18
    How can we reason together if we are apart? The richest guy in the world is the one selling this juice yo the church!
    We had better stop drinking before it’s too late. May God help us, His church!

  2. This man has caused so much destruction in the Christian church starting with his Purpose Driven drivel. He is a globalists and sold his soul a long time ago.

  3. More “purposeful” (not) blather from the self appointed “Rick-Meister.” How does this man get up in front of anyone, anywhere, and say that he knows and understands the Bible? I guess a heretic can do anything he or she wants, especially if they are “buds” with T. D. Jakes. Segregating your church for any reason is about as far as one can get from the reality of, or the love of Jesus Christ. I can’t decide if I should barf now or later, maybe both.

  4. This seems misleading… The invitation, although it looks fake, says they’re holding a zoom meeting for POC and a racial trauma expert. This is not a regular worship/church service that they are only offering to POC. Is it wrong for them to offer this to POC? Would it be more acceptable to hold a meeting for people who have experienced rape or are recovering addicts, with trauma experts? Or would you consider that inappropriate, as well?

    1. Wow, Poc? You ever stop and think about the multitudes of people like my melanin-rich self who want to be seen as Americans and hate the satanic race baiting filth being thrown at us?

      I’m not a poc, I’m a man made in the image of God, not a victim of injustice, but a victorious blood-washed believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.

      Look unto Jesus Christ and be saved.

  5. I am distraught, this is beyond disgusting. You have insulted all races and caused huge divisions.
    Had it ever occurred to anyone that white, Asian , Indian etc have also been traumatized?
    My children are afraid of their white skin, being seen as a privilege. WOW, my white skin has me working 6 days a week 12 hour days .
    I will never set foot in a church that encourages segregation under any pretense !

  6. Mad magazine occasionally published articles titled “So how come…?” In this case, it would be, “If white slaveowners founded a church 200 years ago, whites in that church today have to continuously grovel and apologize for a practice that disappeared over 150 years ago, with nobody calling for its revival. So how come blacks in the church today can initiate segregation, and it’s called an expression of Christian love?

    I’ve always suspected Rick Warren of being on the other side, and this provides more evidence of that. Is he admitting that Saddleback has been unsafe for blacks? If that’s the case, shouldn’t he resign? Once again, he has things backwards. Proverbs 6:19 says that God hates those who sow discord among brethren, but Rick Warren calls it Christian love.

    1. Yes, you are correct! I agree! We are Christians! All of us! Regardless of our skin color. This is just so ridiculous!

    1. Not so. He is a Christ believer and teacher. One more for Jesus is his motto. Same with everyone who teaches and does counseling. These kinds of rumors and gossiping is from the devil. The devil divides, lies and causes confusion, and this comment is to separate and divide.

  7. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave[a] nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28

  8. There is no black or white, we are all One Blood, One, Race, One Color of Brown! The so-called skin color of black and white is from the devil.
    Acts 17:26: “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;”

  9. This is such a BIG LIE! I can’t believe Christians writing an article about other Christians in such a negative way. Rick Warren accepts everyone in the church, every race. I’ve been attending Saddleback church for 18 years and this is a trashy inaccurate article. Rick Warren wants to reach every country, village and tongue and that doesn’t mean he is a globalist. All white church is not healthy. He is preaching the Great Commission, go into the whole world and preach the gospel and make disciples of every nation, tongue and people baptizing them in the name of Jesus. Saddleback church has supplied and fed more people in Southern California during the covid pandemic than any other organization and thousands have accepted the Lord during this time. Rick Warren and his church has fulfilled the command of Jesus, “when I was hungry you gave me food, when I was sick you visited me, naked you cloth me and in prison you came to me and help me. Lord when did we do this things for you? And the Lord said, in as much as you have done it to the least of these, you have done it unto me”.
