Grace and Truth

We have already looked at a number of wonderful ministry organizations in Israel in the previous review lessons. But, of course, the center of ministry in Israel and throughout the world is the church itself. Thus, we would love to introduce you to our local congregation and share some of the Lord’s work we have the pleasure to be involved in.
