    Principles of Grace and Faith
    Grace is God’s part. Faith is man’s part. They are unfruitful by themselves. God’s grace is powerful, but before the power of His grace is released in someone’s life, it must be received by faith. Discover the role YOU play in God’s plan of grace.

    Biblical Ethics and Morals
    Study the various ethical and moral issues from a Biblical perspective that affect a Christian’s walk with God and their influence with others, including those outside the church.

    Essential Truths of the New Testament
    Learn how truths like healing and prosperity need to be established on the essential foundation of the Gospel in order to see them work in your life. It will not necessarily be what you believe about healing or prosperity that determines whether you will fall or stand when you’re sick or when you’re in poverty. It will most likely be what you believe about the essential and foundational truth of the Gospel, because all other truths must be founded on this truth in order to work.

    Arthur Meintjes, Adjunct Instructor – Charis Bible College Colorado

    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, U.S.A.

    Principles of Grace and Faith
    “This course was super but of course it was too short. These teachings are foundational, and I really feel Rick just peeled back the onion and clarified a great deal I did not even know I was missing. A wonderful use of my time and energy and a profound $$$$$ value.” Anne J., North Carolina

    “The course was life transforming. It connected the dots I had in my life. Everything I learned ministered to my life and I will not be the same again. I thank God for change and freedom I received.” Betty G., Australia

    “This course has helped me to gain greater confidence and understanding of the Word, so that I can effectively minister on this subject and not stumble through questions that people may ask.” Celestine F., Georgia

    Biblical Ethics and Morals
    “What a powerful teaching. This course helped me to really understand in greater detail the importance of Godly ethics in all we say and do.” Darren M., NC

    “This course benefits me a lot because it shared a lot of practical things that lack in the body of Christ. A lot of them are not taught in churches and it’s a very good thing for me to know them. It also increases our wisdom and shapes our conduct in the walk with God.” K.A., France

    “This class was excellent. I believe this course should be a requirement for all born again believers. We need to be aware of what is happening in our culture today. I know that my eyes were opened to some things that we might have to deal with in our ministries. Whom the Son of God has set free, shall be free indeed.”

    Essential Truths of the New Testament
    “I believe that the truths outlined and presented in this course are absolutely mandatory for the progressive growth in a Christian’s walk.”

    “This course helped me to better understand that certain truths in the Bible are essential and that without this knowledge, I cannot experience all that God has done for me through Christ.”

    “For the first time, I really understood what ‘the faith of Christ’ really meant! I can now clearly see that it is not my faith that makes God move, but God already moved because of Jesus’ faith. And I only have to trust in it! Amazing course!”
