Eric Metaxas, in his book Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy wrote:

Especially early in his career, Hitler wished to appear as a typical German, so he praised the churches as bastions of morality and traditional values. But he felt that, in time, the churches would adapt to the National Socialist way of thinking. They would eventually be made into vessels for Nazi ideology, so it served his purposes to destroy them.
