2015-16 Spiritual Theme

"True Wisdom from Above"

Latin: Vera Sapientia Desursum

Scripture reference:  James 3:17  

"But the wisdom that comes from Heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere."


Statement of Faith

The basis of faith shall be the Word of God as interpreted by the following:

1)  We believe that the Bible, made up of 66 books, verbally inspired and free from error in doctrine, fact and ethics,  i.e. inerrant, is the Word of God and the only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice.

2)  We believe in one triune God, eternally existent in three equal persons - Father, Son and  Holy Spirit.

3)  We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal and physical return in power and glory.

4)  We believe that man was created in the image of God; that through sin he brought upon himself and his posterity, not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; that all human beings by physical birth possess a sinful nature and are, therefore, actual sinners in thought, word and deed; and that man, as such, is condemned to hell and utterly unable to remedy his condition by himself or by ecclesiastical rite.

5)  We believe that the salvation of lost and sinful man is a free gift of God’s grace apart from works, based solely upon His vicarious and atoning death, effected by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit and received by trusting in Christ’s finished work on the cross.

6)  We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is  enabled to live a Godly life.

7)  We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost - they that are saved, to the resurrection of life and they that are lost,  to the resurrection of damnation.

8)  We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.

9)    We believe that Biblical marriage is limited is limited to a covenant between a man and a woman.  (Matthew        19:4-6)

Paradise Valley Christian Preparatory Parent’s Code 

1)   I will pray earnestly for Paradise Valley Christian Preparatory. 

2)   I will cooperate fully in the educational functions of PVCP doing my best to make Christian education effective in the life of each of my children in order that he or she may love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ in all of his or her life. 

3)   I will pay all of my financial obligations to PVCP on or before the date due.  If I am ever unable to pay on time, I will notify the school in advance giving both a reasonable explanation for the delay as well as stating when the payment can be made. 

4)   I will support the school by gifts in addition to my tuition payments and fees, as the Lord enables. (As God has prospered us, may we be faithful to Him.) 

5)   I will fulfill my 20 hours of volunteer service (cleaning, serving on committees, grounds upkeep, etc.) or donate $200.00 to the school cheerfully as to the Lord and on time, doing more than my share, as the Lord permits. 

6)   I will undertake volunteer duties and responsibilities for PVCP as opportunities arise and as God provides time and strength. 

7)   I will recommend PVCP to other Christian families as the occasions occur.

8)   I will attend Parent/Teacher meetings and other functions of the school regularly, even though I may not           be able to achieve perfect attendance. 

9)   If I become dissatisfied with the school in any respect, I will seek to resolve the matter with the person or persons involved rather than begin to spread criticism or hold a negative attitude in my heart.

10) I will seek the advancement of PVCP in all areas, spiritually, academically and physically.



Key Chapel Focus

A key focus of developing our students is to help them to be mission minded. This is accomplished through several means outside of the classrooms. We use guest chapel speakers who present the gospel and build upon the monthly Christian Character Traits and annual Spiritual Theme. These special speakers included area pastors, youth ministers, children's church directors, missionaries, special ministry teams, mission organizations, parents, and more. Every quarter our own students involve themselves in chapel presentation, drama, and music. Our very own Big Boys On Campus and Moms In Touch present chapels as well. Guest musicians such as The Joy Singers, Arizona Christian University, and our talented PVCP student worship band present special chapel music.

Mission Offerings

Students are encouraged to reach out to the community through the weekly mission offerings and giving. Numerous ministries are supported. Missionaries on the field, World Vision, Sunshine Acres Orphanage, Phoenix Rescue Mission, Samaritans Purse, national disaster victims, Carpenters Tools International, Jews for Jesus, Steps of Faith, Neighborhood Ministries, Creation Institute, Gideons, and Arizona Christian University were a few of the organizations that receive mission love offerings on behalf of the students. Additionally, support is provided to families in need of food and clothing through homeless ministries.

High School Service

Every high school student is required to serve 20 hours of service every year to a local community service organization which is documented in the Bible class.

S.H.I.N.E.  (Serving Him In Neighborhoods Everywhere)

The primary goal of the SHINE program is to partner with local, nonprofit organizations to provide meaningful service on projects during SHINE month. Students, faculty, and parents come together to serve the local and global commuinty for a day during the month of March.

Prayer Partners

Prayer partners provide another ministry of support for classmates and families. Younger children are paired with older students to pray for each other as they meet weekly. Faculty and staff meet daily to pray for the school families and children. The goal has always been to encourage one another and bathe our school in prayer. Faculty Devotions include in-depth studies that align with our spiritual theme for the year. Faculty also participate in prayer partners each Wednesday. This is a special time of prayer partnering and accountability between faculty.

Parents are provided opportunities to participate in the Big Boys on Campus who meet twice monthly to pray for PVCP and to encourage each other as spiritual leaders and role models in their homes and on campus and in Moms In Touch which pray weekly for our students, faculty, and families.
