"It is the mission of Pascack Bible Church to love God and love people."
"It is the vision of Pascack Bible Church to make disciples in a relational environment."
Worship God: The first and greatest commandment God has given us is to love and worship Him. We view our corporate worship services as something we attend, and as something in which we fully participate. We gather with a confident and humble expectation that God is powerfully present when we worship Him and we are prepared to respond to His presence. We encourage creativity in the planning and execution of our services. We strive to make all aspects of our services welcoming, understandable and relevant to people who are just beginning to consider a personal relationship with Jesus. We do this with an unwavering commitment to the proclamation of biblical truth. We encourage people to regularly and consistently participate in our weekly worship services. Worship is not just for Sunday mornings; rather, we are worshipers, who have the opportunity to worship God at all times. We are committed to encouraging people to be worshipers of God wherever they are.
Serve the world: Jesus taught that if you want to be great you must begin by serving. It is our desire to be a great church, therefore we must be a serving church. People learn to serve the needs of others right here within our own congregation, but it doesn’t stop there. We recognize that we have been blessed with tremendous resources and we specifically target those resources to serve the needs of people outside of our church. Strategically, we see this beginning in areas geographically closest to us, so we offer many ministries to children, teens and their families, and seek to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people in our local community. We also meet the needs of people in distant lands and have partnered with other churches and individuals to meet those needs. Over the past 20 years we have grown to have a special connection with the country of Albania and sent numerous people and resources to that desperately needy country.
Love One Another: Along with loving and worshiping Him, God has called us to love one another. Rather than settle for shallow, superficial relationships, we encourage people to develop deep spiritual friendships, where high levels of trust, accountability and mutual care can take place. We stress the importance of these relationships and create environments for them to develop and flourish. We offer a variety of small group gatherings as one effective way to facilitate both the development of these relationships and the growth in the knowledge and practical application of the Bible to our everyday life. We encourage every person in our church to participate in at least one of these groups.
