Can anyone let us know what Church this is from in Japan and approximately what age it is? Artist's name and is the Japanese below the English area the same story as above in English?

新救世会館落成奉祝記念 - New COWM Center Inaguration
Celebration Remembrance
世界救世教 -Sekai Kyusei Kyō - Church of World Messianity (COWM) (Ref. Google)
The inscription,
之から出すぞ 八方へ
From now I will show in
all directions
my hand
(Presumably a citation from the founder -Okada Mokichi - in the rendered translation this part is translated differently from the text as Meishu-sama - refrering the founder)
Right lower part,
白觀  - Hakkan - White concept - (Presumably art-name of calligrapher- the founder Okada Mokichi)
大六七 - Dai Rokushichi -Great 67-(At the age of Great 67) Leisure seal of calligrapher

The English text is the rough interpretation of the Japanese original -
The small label contains the name of art-shop
where this print was made, but unfortuntely
illegibly blurred.

With regards,
