About Us

Those who live in his shadow will again raise grain, and they will blossom like the vine.  His renown will be like the wine of Lebanon.   O Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols?  It is I who answer and look after you  I am like a luxuriant cypress;  From Me comes your fruit.  Whoever is wise, let him understand these things;  Whoever is discerning, let him know them  for the ways of the LORD are right, and the righteous will walk in them, but transgressors will stumble in them.
