Actor Denzel Washington on Monday said he was "filled with the Holy Ghost" while attending a church service in the 1980's, which he described as a "supernatural" experience.

"I was filled with the Holy Ghost and it scared me; I said, 'Wait a minute, I didn't want to go this deep, I want to party,'" Washington said in an Instagram Live video with Pastor A.R. Bernard of the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn on Monday, according to Fox News.

Washington said he attended Bishop Charles E. Blake's West Angeles Church of God in Christ, where he "let go and experienced something I've never experienced in my life."

He said that one day, "I went to church with Robert Townsend and when it came time to come down to the altar I said, 'You know this time, I'm just going to go down there and give it up and see what happens.' I went in the prayer room and gave it up and let go and experienced something I've never experienced in my life."

Washington said he told his mother, "I felt like I was going up in the air, and my cheeks were filled."

She replied, "'Oh no, that's the devil you're purging.'"

According to the actor, "It was a supernatural, once in this lifetime experience that I couldn't completely understand at the time."

He said, "It kept me grounded in spite of myself; I mean, I accepted it, I definitely experienced it, but I wasn't ready to live it. I don't know how old I was then, but I wasn't ready to live it then. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's gone through that kind of experience."
