A Betta Tomorrow

A Betta Tomorrow was started out of a God-given vision, and has grown into a powerful movement. Its ultimate goal is to see the eradication of evil and this present "darkness" that is plaguing our land we love. While you will be able to easily recognize many of the faces on the frontline for the movement, A Betta Tomorrow is really made up of you... the every day citizen who knows, who believes deep down in your heart, that our country CAN be delivered from its present oppression of evil, restored to what a Godly nation should look like and transformed to put on top and at the forefront those things which are righteous, just, lovely, honest and worthy of good report.
