|Arthur Meintjes - Kingdom Life Ministries
Arthur has traveled the world teaching the GOOD NEWS (Gospel of Peace) and FAITH-RIGHTEOUSNESS, a message of God's unconditional love and mercy to build, repair and restore mankind. The emphasis of the message is to show people that God is kind, good and loving. The gospel is the power of God unto salvation or wholeness in every area of life. This Good News does not point out what is wrong with you. It is about what is RIGHT with you because of the finished work of the cross of Jesus Christ, in spite of what is wrong with you. Grace doesn't give permission to sin, it empowers one to live a godly life. Arthur and his wife, Cathy established Kingdom Life Ministries in 1992. They reside in Colorado.
