Absolutely not, we have students from a range of different denominations and beliefs. We also have many families who simply want to have strong Christian values at school reinforce the values that their home upholds.
Being baptised into the Adventist Church is not a requirement to be enrolled at TVAC

As a Christian school, our RE classes make up one of our core studies, as such it is a requirement that all students attend. The Christian values taught during these classes enable students to make wise decisions in their day to day lives and help build strength of character for their future.

The Adventist church promotes and upholds healthy lifestyle choices however we do not require students to adhere to these choices. We do encourage and teach our students to exercise, make healthy lifestyle choices and offer healthy, vegetarian meals through our College Canteen on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays.

Holy Holy Holy

Reginald Heber


Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! Angels adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Thousands and ten thousands worship low before Thee,
Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of  man Thy great glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
Holy, holy, holy; merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

‘The Blood’ Medley

Andrae Crouch

 
The blood that Jesus shed for me
Way back on Calvary
The blood that gives me strength
From day to day
It will never lose its power
 
What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

This is all my Hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
 
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

O, there is power, power, wonder working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb
 
O, There is power, power, wonder working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb
In the precious blood of the Lamb
In the precious blood of the Lamb

Great is Thy Faithfulness

Thomas Chisholm

 
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with Thee
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love

Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside

Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness x3, Lord, unto me

As a Witness

David Williams

 
This mystery You spoke, in the end will be done.
It is Christ in you the hope of glory.
But how could this be, with the sinful heart of man,
and iniquity has stained my story.
 
But He said, not by might of man, but through My Holy Spirit.
I’m the true Vine, through you, I’ll reveal who I am.
 
Oh so many dying souls, a desperate world in need,
they are fallen, and blinded of His love.
Let the truth of heaven shine, that the captives may be freed,
looking not to self, but Christ above.
 
But He said, not by might of man, but through My Holy Spirit.
I’m the true Vine, through you I’ll reveal who I am.
 
We are His witnesses, we’ll claim, His promises.
Let us show the world what God has done.
We are His witnesses, believe what scripture says,
that on that rugged cross He gave His Son.
 
To every nation tribe and tongue,
for His judgement now has come,
let us be His witnesses,
then the end of earth shall come.
 
To love Him and man is the greatest case for Christ,
what more is there to prove the great I Am.
When this gospel has gone, we’ll behold our Lord so bright,
then we’ll see the Promised Land.
 
And He said, not by might of man,
but through My Holy Spirit.
I’m the true Vine,
through you I’ll reveal who I am.
 
We are His witnesses, we’ll claim, His promises.
Let us show the world what God has done.
We are His witnesses, believe what scripture says,
that on that rugged cross He gave His Son.
 
To every nation tribe and tongue,
for His judgement now has come,
let us be His witnesses.
 
We are His witnesses, we’ll claim, His promises.
Let us show the world what God has done.
We are His witnesses, believe what scripture says,
that on that rugged cross He gave His Son.
 
To every nation tribe and tongue,
for His judgement now has come,
let us be His witnesses,
then the end of earth shall come.

Life out Thy Life Within Me

Frances R. Havergal/Johanna McKay

 
Live out Thy life within me, O Jesus, King of kings
Be Thou Thyself the answer to all my questionings;
Live out Thy life within me, in all things have Thy way
I, thy transparent medium, Thy glory to display.

The temple has been yielded, and purified of sin,
Let Thy Shekinah glory now shine forth from within,
And all the earth keep silence, the body henceforth be
Thy silent, gentle servant, moved only as by Thee.

Live in me, breathe in me, use me for Your will
So the world can see, that You are good and holy

Its members every moment held subject to Thy call,
Ready to have Thee use them, or not be used at all,
Held without restless longing, or strain, or stress, or fret,
Or chafings at Thy dealings, or thoughts of vain regret.

Live in me, breathe in me, use me for Your will
So the world can see, that You are good and holy
Live in me, breathe in me, use me for Your will
So the world can see, that You are good and holy

But restful, calm and pliant, from bend and bias free,
Awaiting Thy decision, when Thou hast need of me;
Live out Thy life within me, O Jesus, King of kings!
Be Thou the glorious answer to all my questionings.

Live in me, breathe in me, use me for Your will
So the world can see, that You are good and holy
Live in me, breathe in me, use me for Your will
So the world can see, that You are good and holy

It Is Well

Horatio G. Spafford

 
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul
 
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
 
Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ (yes, He has) has regarded my helpless estate
And has shed His own blood for my soul
 
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
 
My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought (a thought)
My sin, not in part, but the whole (every bit, every bit, all of it)
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more (yes)
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul
 
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
Sing it as well
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
 
And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend
Even so, it is well with my soul
 
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
‘Cause of You, Jesus, it is well
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

O the Deep Deep Love of Jesus

Samuel Trevor Francis

 
O the deep, deep love of Jesus
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free,
rolling as a mighty ocean
in its fullness over me.

Underneath me, all around me,
is the current of thy love;
leading onward, leading homeward,
to thy glorious rest above.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus
Spread his praise from shore to shore;
how He loveth, ever loveth,
changeth never, nevermore;

How He watches o’er His loved ones,
died to call them all His own;
how for them He intercedeth,
watcheth o’er them from the throne.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus
Love of ev’ry love the best:
’tis an ocean vast of blessing,
’tis a haven sweet of rest.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus!
‘Tis a heav’n of heav’ns to me;
and it lifts me up to glory,
for it lifts me up to thee.
