The mission of Adventist Community Services (ACS) is to serve the community in Christ’s name. This means serving the whole person; not only proclaiming the good news of salvation, but also demonstrating 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. These included the poor, the sick, the unclean, the prostitutes, and tax collectors—all societal outcasts. Jesus expanded His kingdom to places, people, and cultures that the Jews had never considered God to be interested in and has thus set these examples for many (Matt 9:10, 21:31, Rom 14:14).

Central’s ACS’s also operates a bi-weekly Food Closet.
