Justin Bieber had the most lit baptism in modern history—and that's all thanks to the Supreme-wearing, resident cool pastor, Carl Lentz.

On Thursday's episode of Desus & Mero, Lentz talked about the night he made a believer out of Bieber, which he documents in his new book Own The Moment. Long story short, he called up NBA star Tyson Chandler at 2AM asking if he and Bieber could use his pool. Chandler offered his bathtub instead, and at 3AM, he and his wife watched as Lentz baptized the pop star.

"That's the thing about baptism," Lentz explained. "It's not about where, it's about why."
