According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, West morphed Ginuwine’s “So Anxious” into a worship track, as well as “Father Stretch my Hands” during an hours-long performance at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

During one song, where singers declared that “nothing is too hard for God,” Kanye stopped and prayed to God, imploring the congregation, “all you ask is for radical obedience to you.”

Kayne even gave a mini-sermon, during which he encouraged people to be bold in their faith.

“They be coming at me like, ‘why are you so judgmental?’ Well, it ain’t for me to judge but I’m gonna say what I see,” Kanye said. “That’s another thing that the Devil says.. ‘why are you speaking up so much?’”

“I’m just pointing to the word,” the rapper added.

“The power of god can’t be calculated by a number, by a first week sale, by a bank account, by how many cars you drive, by how big your house is and how many acres you got.”

“I wasn’t expecting him to give his personal revelations as much as he did,” one fan told the AJC. “I thought it was just going to be music. I wasn’t expecting that but I liked it.”

“I’ve gone to church all of my life, but this was something pretty unique,” they added.

In a recent appearance on “The View,” Kim Kardashian-West was asked about Kanye’s “Sunday Service.” She explained that her husband’s worship service exploits were were developed out of a relentless pursuit for God.

“Kanye started this, I think, just to heal himself and it was a really personal thing … and it was just friends and family,” Kim said. “And he has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ.”

“It is a Christian service, like a musical ministry; they talk about Jesus and God,” she added.

Kanye’s new album, “Jesus is King,” is set for release September 27.
