Personal words of the founder of the company Jürgen Horschler:

My very own life experience in good and difficult times as an important reference to my dear customers and readers of these words:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, [Jesus Christ ], that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God send not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved.” Gospel of John 3, 16+17
