Our Mission & Vision

Helping people come to know God by the Book

By that we mean that we want to help people know God the way He wants them to know Him. We believe that God inspired the authorship and preservation of The Bible for us to know Him and His will and wisdom. He didn’t want us to invent or theorize who or what He is, but to know Him as He is, by The Book.


Our aspiration is to be:


A Church fervent in prayer, guided by the Holy Spirit,

United in God’s love,

Promoting the cause of Jesus Christ!


This describes the character and personality of the Church we want to be. We believe in the purpose and power of prayer. Our desire is to be submitted and directed by The Holy Spirit. It is our desire to develop and express our love for Him and one another. Recognizing who we are and the wonderful truth we have, it is our intention to share that with everyone.


The mission of Pembroke Assembly of God is to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ. The vision of our church is to glorify our God and Savior, Jesus Christ, to make true disciples throughout all the nations by means of missionary activity and support, to minister the ordinances, to edify believers, and to do all that is sovereignly possible and biblically permissible to magnify the name of Jesus.



Pastor Joe Quaresimo

Each week we are blessed as Pastor Joe carefully unpacks the truths of Scripture. He has served Pembroke Assembly of God for almost fourteen years and has been in Ministry for over 30 years. Pastor Joe and his wife, Judy hail from Long Island, New York.  Pastor Joe recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that he is but a “sheepdog” who serves under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ.  It is his desire to devote himself to prayer and to the ministry of the Word.  His passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
