Hitler signed a concordat with the Catholic church in 1933 – this meant that Hitler would leave the church alone and that the church would keep out of politics. The protestant churches were united into one church – The Reich Church led by Bishop Muller. Hitler also encouraged his own religion – The German Faith Movement.
