EXCLUSIVE

Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. -- who counts Justin Bieber and the Kardashians among his flock -- is not as holy as he claims ... so say some Miami street artists who says the church stole from them.

It seems Wilkerson's Miami place of worship, Vous Church, used a series of works done by artists like Typoe, Bikismo and Ahol Sniffs Glue in social media and newspaper ads ... without permission.

The works the good Pastor lifted were murals for a local public school, never designed for "a well-funded celebrity church brand or its prosperous pastors."

The lawsuit -- filed by Kushnirsky Gerber PLLC -- makes mention of Wilkerson's lavish lifestyle and celebrity connections (he officiated Kim and Kanye's wedding) but claims the church never once offered to ante up a penny.

BTW ... the suit says even if Wilkerson asked for permission, they would have denied it.
