The Ministries of our Church
Aiea ACS Mission
The Aiea Adventist Community Services serves the whole person, a concept known as holistic ministry whose mission is to “serve the community in Christ’s name”. The purpose of holistic ministry is not only to proclaim the Good News, the word of salvation, but also to demonstrate the love of God to people who are in need. Throughout Jesus’ ministry there is evidence of a genuine holistic approach toward humanity; especially people who were marginalized, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised from society.
ACS Community Development and Urban Ministry Program (ACS CD/UM) provides vital help to individuals and families who are unemployed, working-poor, uninsured and disadvantaged in poverty stricken and urban areas. It offers relief services, promotes individual and community development that includes equipping community members with skills to become self-sufficient and engages in public advocacy.
This program makes services accessible to communities by locating in the heart of neighborhoods and becoming familiar with residents to nurture their hope, self-value and ability to succeed.
