About Us

Grahame was a Land Surveyor who spent 4 years from 1963-1966 studying in Moore College with a view to preparing himself for a ministry of the Word of God. Patty worked as a Science/Maths teacher until she and Grahame married and subsequently had a family, during which period she studied the external courses from Moore College. They married in 1967 and worked in a secular capacity whilst at the same time having a very active involvement in their local church in Kiama, Australia. During this period they led the Youth Group, taught the Moore College courses, ran Bible Studies, preached and had an involvement in many of the other church activities for some 13 years, before going with their young family of 3 children (aged 6, 9 & 11) to Chile in South America, where they worked for a total of 20 years in Theological Education by Extension. They taught and promoted the external courses from Moore College at every opportunity during that time, including making them available via the Internet under MOCLAM, until, at their return to Australia in 2003, they saw the courses being used increasingly in other republics in Latin America via that medium. The program is now being used in many Spanish speaking countries and Grahame & Patty continue to work in that ministry.

In the latter half of 2005, due to their frustration over not being able to get the good books used as texts for the Moore College courses published in Spanish, they started up a non-profit publishing company, which allows them to publish, at a price that the average person in Latin America can afford to pay, books such as those mentioned on the LCC HOME page, as well as to provide other resources via the Internet. They are pursuing this venture as a ministry rather than a viable economic proposition so that the prices of the materials can be kept to a minimum on that continent.

As a result of this initiative, at the end of 2006, Grahame & Patty set up the Life Change through Christ Trust (LCC Trust) to raise funds to enable the publication of some of the great Christian books and other materials that are available in the English speaking world in the area of Biblical Theology, as well as to make some of these resources available via the Internet.

Grahame & Patty Scarrratt administered the MOCLAM courses in Latin America until 2010, when Peter Sholl (in Mexico with CMS-Australia) took over as Director. In December 2005, they set up the non-profit publishing company Torrentes de Vida and in 2006, the Life Change through Christ Trust to raise money, in the main, for the publishing of the books that accompany the MOCLAM courses. They worked in Latin America from 1980 to 2003 and continued to return to that continent for 3-4 months each year until 2010, promoting the courses, presenting seminars on Biblical Theology and promoting books. They are now based in Kama, New South Wales, Australia, continuing to work in various aspects of the external courses from Moore College in the Spanish speaking world and on the preparation of materials for publication in Spanish.

What We Believe

We believe in the central truths of Christianity as revealed in Scripture and expressed in the doctrinal statement of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES):

  • The unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
  • The sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgment.
  • The divine inspiration and entire trustworthiness of Holy Scripture, as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of all men since the fall, rendering them subject to God's wrath and condemnation.
  • Redemption from the guilt, penalty, dominion and pollution of sin, solely through the sacrificial death (as our representative and substitute) of the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.
  • The bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead and his ascension to the right hand of God the Father.
  • The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration.
  • The justification of the sinner by the grace of God through faith alone.
  • The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
  • The one holy universal Church which is the body of Christ and to which all true believers belong.
  • The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
