A Popular Worship Artist Your Church Probably Uses for Worship Exposes Herself in Risque Photo Online

Koryn Hawthorne is an up-and-coming star in the contemporary worship scene, renowned for her hit song “How Great Thou Art.” Her music is becoming increasingly popular in Evangelical worship services across the nation. However, a closer look at her background and associations reveals troubling signs of unbiblical compromise infiltrating the church.

But before we dive into that, let’s see what she’s up to on social media. In a recent Instagram photo, she poses in what can only be described as a risque self-exposure for something that is unbecoming of any woman, especially one who claims to be a gospel artist. In fact, the picture is so revealing that I couldn’t even publish it without blurring it out—when I was a kid, a magazine with a photo like this on the front would be covered with a cardboard covering in the adult-only section.

But none of that matters, because her music sounds good, right? Never mind that we’re pointing thousands of kids in these megachurches to these soft-porn stars masquerading as worship artists. There is no sinister motive from the devil behind any of this. Nothing to see here, move along.

So, who exactly is Hawthorne? Hawthorne currently serves as a worship leader at Crossroads Church, an Assemblies of God Pentecostal congregation in LaFayette, LA. She launched her singing career after appearing on NBC’s The Voice, receiving robust support from her home church at the time, Lighthouse for Jesus Ministries in Abbeville, SC. Lighthouse is a Oneness Pentecostal church that adheres to the aberrant Oneness doctrine of God—a heretical movement that denies the Trinity. This doctrine teaches that God manifests Himself in three different ways—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—rather than existing as three separate and distinct persons concurrently, akin to the ancient heresy of Sabellianism, or modalism.

Lighthouse’s Facebook page openly explains the church’s devotion to Oneness theology and its belief in modern-day prophets and apostles, a notion closely associated with the heretical New Apostolic Reformation movement. While such beliefs are common among most Pentecostal denominations, they are especially pronounced in Oneness movements. Despite her current role at Crossroads Church, Hawthorne’s ties to Lighthouse remain strong. She attended a private school operated by Lighthouse and has received unwavering support from the church and the school in her music career.

An article from The Advertiser highlights a “prophecy” from Lighthouse’s overseer predicting Hawthorne’s music career. Spraggins, the principal of the school and Hawthorne’s father’s first cousin, recalled, “The overseer of our church had spoken a word to her and said her talent was something that was going to be seen by the world… We believed it because God spoke that into her life.” This ongoing support from the Oneness congregation casts doubt on Hawthorne’s stance on the Trinity.

Hawthorne’s personal beliefs on the Trinity remain unknown, as she has not publicly addressed them. However, her continued association with Lighthouse for Jesus Ministries suggests she does not view Oneness theology as heresy. Furthermore, her involvement with the Pentecostal movement, particularly the United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI), aligns her with the New Apostolic Reformation—a movement wholly rejected by orthodox biblical Christianity.

Hawthorne’s music and doctrine are ecumenical and shallow, advocating carnality and worldliness. Biblical churches should avoid her music, as it risks leading congregations into false movements and tacitly endorsing aberrant theologies.
