What does Arkios Mean?

In classical Greek, the word "arkios" conveys such concepts as reliability and certainness, and symbolizes our desire to fully assist you in all areas of your housing needs through trustworthy, first-class consulting and services.

The word can be found in 2 Corinthians 12:9 where it says: "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient "arkios" for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
