In the Bible, First Thessalonians 4:11, the Apostle Paul urged the Thessalonian Christians to make it their ambition to live a quiet life. In 2005 the Guinness Book of World Records reported that Minneapolis, Minnesota is the quietest place on Earth. That seems ironic considering Minnesota has abundant wildlife, craft breweries, Megamalls and lots of exciting and interesting tourist attractions. Fitting in with Minnesota’s quiet neighborhoods, there are numerous historic churches.
A Saint Paul Minnesota church, The Cathedral of Saint Paul, is the largest church in the United States. This French Renaissance, classical Church overlooks downtown Saint Paul. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975, the Basilica of Saint Mary in Downtown Minneapolis grabs the attention. The First Annual Music Festival held at the Basilica of St Mary in 1995 attracted more than 15,000 people. The attendees raised more than $100,000 to restore and maintain the building. Within Minnesota’s immense Polish community is a Polish-style Cathedral. This well-preserved, red brick cathedral, steepled, and capped in white is a remarkable landmark located in Winona, Minnesota. St. Paul’s Cathedral have unique Romanesque arches, vaults, and towers.
In addition to the various historic churches in Minnesota, is the Mighty Fortress International Church & Ministries. The head pastor is Bishop Thomas Williams. He is a thirty-year veteran Bible teacher. Bishop Williams and First Lady Sabrina Williams have three beautiful children. Bishop Williams has a Master’s degree of Arts in Mass Communications and graduated from Rhema Bible training center in Tulsa Oklahoma.

Bishop Williams encourages joyful noises of worship and is dedicated to teaching that the way to salvation is through Jesus Christ. He is building communities and uniting differences. He wants Christians from all walks of life to exercise their God-given power and be victorious over poverty, disease, sicknesses, and world distress. Bible study, worship, and prayer are keys to spiritual warfare and making this world a better place to live.
