    The Strait and Narrow- Matt. 7:13,14

    in Religion

    The Lord never said it would be easy following Him.


    The biblical definition of 'strait', it doesn't mean what we be taught it means.


    Be encouraged in the Lord our salvation is near.


    The christian holidays(e.g. Easter) are always a reflection of the "broadway" that many travel.


    Someone please tell me how you get 3 days and 3 nights from good friday to sunday sunrise(Easter Sunday) according to Matt.12:40?!

    Interview with Better Ed president Devin C. Foley

    in News

    “The simple reality is that the education system has failed, particularly for minorities. The Minneapolis school district spends $21,000 per student per year, but currently less than 25% of black students are reading at or above grade level. If the system cannot adequately help large segments of the population, then we need a new system of education.” ~Better Ed


    Minneapolis, Minn. – You have seen the billboards pointing worded fingers right at the Minneapolis Public Schools headquarters on Broadway Avenue. We have watched Better Ed run ad campaigns in mailers, social media and literature drops that tell us the Minneapolis Public School system is not educating learners for success. Join us as we speak candidly with Better Ed president Devin C. Foley.
