Description


In 2002, a team of Christian educators from the Philadelphia area made the first of yearly trips to Cameroon. They have met with church and government education leaders to discuss the needs of the youth. They found the need for quality secondary vocational training to be valid and worthy of further action. After returning to the U.S., this team formed the 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization Comprehensive Vocational Academies International known as CVAI. They designed CVAI as an organization that would promote religious, academic, and vocational skills to provide a comprehensive education in developing countries that will prepare young people to influence their culture and their nation. Now, dozens of individuals from Cameroon and the U.S. have become involved in this need. Plans for a Christian comprehensive vocational school continue to be developed. In 2004, a partnership agreement for a new school was signed with the General Secretary of the 100,000 member Cameroon Baptist Convention.

Organizational Statement of Faith


Foundational Biblical Beliefs of Comprehensive Vocational Academies International We believe in: 1. The only true God, the almighty Creator of all things, all powerful, all knowing, and everywhere present, existing eternally in three persons ? Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 2. The unique divine inspiration, entire trustworthiness, and absolute authority of the Bible. 3. The value and dignity of all people; created in God?s image to live in love and holiness, but completely alienated from God and one another because of our sin and guilt, totally unable to save ourselves, and justly subject to God?s wrath. 4. Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine, who lived a sinless life on earth as perfect example, who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place, and who was bodily raised from the dead, ascended as Saviour and Lord, and exalted at God?s right hand. 5. Justification by God?s grace alone to all who repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation. 6. The indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit, who gives to all believers a new life and a new calling to obedient service and empowers them for Christian living. 7. The unity of all believers in Jesus Christ, manifest in worshiping and witnessing churches making disciples throughout the world. 8. The future personal return and victorious reign of Jesus Christ, who will judge all people with justice and mercy, receiving the redeemed into eternal life but giving over the unrepentant to eternal condemnation. 9. Christ?s Great Commission to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature, making disciples, baptizing, and teaching.
