SAINT PETER SAID TO
JESUS......LORD, TO WHOM SHALL WE GO IF WE LEAVE YOU?.....YOU HAVE THE
WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE.....JOHN 6:68.

doctrine that delivers)
My name is Gavin Michael McLean and I write today to testify
in evidence and support of the one in whom I put my trust,
Jesus the Christ. My very present help in time of trouble,
who provides all my needs according to his riches which are
As I look back on my life all I see is Jesus waiting for me
to 'truly' repent, turn from sin and follow him on his
terms. I was sentenced to six and half years jail of which I
served four and a half years for bank robbery. I also
attempted suicide twice failing both times by the grace of
God, this gave me time to repent of my sins. This is my story and I hope it can be helpful to you.....Matthew
3:8, Acts 26:20.
I was born-again at the age of 12 at Garden City Christian
Church (the now Hillsong Church Brisbane) in 1988.
Water baptised by full immersion on Mother's Day at the age
However, I realise now that I was one of the many who were
deceived by the (denominational) winds of doctrine by the trickery of
religious men and women who in their cunning craftiness
forever lie in wait to deceive many, few find the narrow
gate ......Ephesians 4:14...click.
But by the grace of God I have managed to stand by faith,
believing all along that there remains a seed/doctrine for
which my heart yearned, the true doctrine of the Christ, the
doctrine that is able to deliver from known sin, cleanse and
9:29, 1Peter 1:23.
And seeking to find this teaching, by the power of holy
ghost Father led me to a paddock, pasture, little church
that fed me truth, understanding, knowledge and mercy.
Pastor Paul Sheehan a man who has the doctrine of the Christ
taught me how important doctrine is to being saved to the
uttermost. Paul is a man who is not afraid to expose the
heretics and false teachers of Christendom, who promote a
gospel that is not able to deliver people from known sin
once and for all......Romans 6:15-23, Jeremiah 3:15, 8:7,
1 Timothy 4:16......click.
Even as Micah the prophet sought for righteous fellowship so
did I for many years and now I have found it, remembering
that there is only a berry here and a berry there, few find
the narrow gate....Micah 7:1-7, Matthew 7:13,14,
There will be a thorough purging of his threshing
floor/church before he/Jesus returns, are you willing to be
purged/cleansed, readied as a bride/virgin waits for her
groom, without spot, wrinkle or blemish?.....Now is the
time of salvation, now is the time to repent....Luke 24:47,
Luke 6:46, 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10, Matthew 3:12 .......click.
