March 25, 2005 -- A Queens minister sweet-talked a 16-year-old church member into an illicit tryst by telling her his teddy-bear-filled bed was the gateway to the holy life, the woman told a jury yesterday.

"He would say that the priest should sleep with the virgin," the woman said of accused pervert William Waynes, pastor of the New Beginning Outreach Love Center in Corona.

"To become powerful and to become . . . basically what kind of evangelist he wanted me to be, he would have to enter inside me so that his spirit can come from him inside me so that I can I can become a great evangelist."

Waynes, 47, is charged with rape for allegedly sleeping with the woman, then his assistant secretary, in March 2003 two weeks after her sweet 16.
