Welcome to our Website
Our desire is to be of service to you as an individual and to our community as a whole. We are a fellowship of Christians from Pembroke and the surrounding regions of the Upper Ottawa Valley of Ontario, Canada.
The Pembroke Bible Chapel is an autonomous church which is part of a loosely knit association of brethren churches throughout the world.
Some of our distinctives are that we: are evangelistic, believe in the necessity of being "born again", are shepherded by a plurality of elders, enjoy Bible ministry by a variety of gifted brethren, and, meet weekly for communion.
At PBC, we know that we are not the only people who love God and who are seeking to follow Him; but together, we have found a warm and caring fellowship that seeks to fully embrace each person with grace and truth.
None But the Hungry Heart

PROPER PRESENTATION - June 23, 2018
"The things that thou hast heard from me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also" (2 Timothy 2:2).
Truth based upon law will be presented legally--it will be legislated. Truth based upon grace will be shared graciously, in love. "Adorn the doctrine of God" by "speaking the truth in love" (Titus 2:10; Ephesians 4:15).
"There are two things that have to be taken into account in communicating truth. Not merely should there be certainty that it is the truth from God, but it must also be suited truth to those whom you address. They might need it all, but they may not be in condition to receive it; and the more precious the truth, the greater the injury, in a certain sense, if it is presented to those who are not in a state to profit by it."
"We are to serve under His direction, and according to His pleasure; not just because opportunity or need offers. We require His direction, and the knowledge of His pleasure, however favorable the opportunity or the occasion. We see a servant in Acts 8 taken away from an interesting field of service, to meet one man in the desert. "It is not a question of how we succeed; but have we the assurance that we are doing the Lord's pleasure? Happy is the servant who is so led by Him that he always presents the measure of truth suited to the state of souls, and refuses to supply the knowledge that puffeth up."
"Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Spirit teacheth, comparing spiritual things with spiritual" (1 Corinthians 2:13).
