Pascack Bible Church (“PBC,” as we affectionately call ourselves) is a community of faith in Hillsdale, NJ. Begun in 1966 with a group of 232 adults who experienced their church as a kind of extended family, PBC has ministered to thousands over its more than four decades. This core value of building a true community of faith with a world-wide vision, centered in far northern Bergen County, still holds our attention. We believe that this true biblical community is fostered when the church is gathered in large celebrations of worship, such as our Sunday morning services and our “Home Groups,” where we are scattered into our community in smaller gatherings. These groups are small enough to encourage mutual care, discipleship and servant-like ministry; essential to our identity as the body of Christ.
Though the natural thing is to evaluate a church on the basis of what happens on a Sunday morning, we believe there is a lot more to being a church than that. The opportunities to minister and be ministered to are co-equal partners in the life of every Christian. We need both the large group and small group intimate settings to have a well balanced, growing faith.
On behalf of the congregation of Pascack Bible Church we invite you to join us in our services and in our homes. You are needed and wanted.
The primary building blocks of Pascack Bible Church are our “Home Groups.” Each home group has up to 15 people who meet weekly or biweekly for worship, sharing, prayer and teaching. It is in these small group settings that people find their faith encouraged as they develop closer personal and spiritual relationships with other Christians.
The key to life at PBC is the growing experience of, and appreciation for, worship. It is something in which we invest a great amount of time, energy and creativity. Contemporary worship songs and great hymns, the use of a variety of instruments, spontaneous expressions of praise, personalized prayer, drama, relevant preaching and teaching all contribute to the vibrancy of our worship.
|Children’s & Youth Ministry
Recognizing the importance of having our children grow up in the knowledge and love of God, we have specialized age appropriate ministries for children of all ages. These include special classes for our youngest children during worship services, as well as nursery, Sunday School and extensive children’s ministry and youth programs.
|Outreach to our Community and the World
Pascack Bible Church was founded with a high level of commitment to sharing the love of Jesus Christ with the world around us. Outreach to our community and the world are, therefore, key elements of who we are as a congregation. Along with actively supporting the work of our own missionaries in Turkey, Albania, and elsewhere, we are also active in local ministries in the Pascack Valley.
