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
The following daily devotional is a compilation of writings by various people of faith. It was compiled by Miles Stanford. In reading these devotionals day-by-day our desire is that you will be encouraged in your faith and learn to depend on the Lord Jesus in all circumstances.

MY FATHER CARES! - April 27, 2015
"I have heard of Thee by the hearing of the ear" (Job 42:5).
The heart that is hungry to have God's purpose worked out in his life is going to be neither disappointed, nor pampered. When it comes to seeing self for what it is, there can be no pampering; when it comes to seeing the Lord Jesus Christ for who He is, there can be no disappointment.
"Why are the people of God suffering?--that they may be conformed to the image of His Son. Of course, we may not need a world upheaval to do this, but God is going to use all conditions to that end, and, tragically enough, there are multitudes of the Lord's people who do need a world shaking.
"They are so bound up with the externalities of Christianity, with its whole structure and system, that nothing but that which will overthrow, disintegrate, destroy, and raise tremendous questions about the whole business, will bring them to the place where the Spirit of God can begin really to do the work He has come to do in them." -T. A-S.
"Job was a true servant of God; but he needed to learn himself, as we all do. He needed to have the roots of his moral being laid bare in his own sight so that he might really abhor himself, and repent in dust and ashes. And furthermore, he needed a truer and deeper sense of what God was, so that he might trust Him and justify Him under all circumstances." -C.H.M.
"But now mine eye seeth Thee" (Job 42:5).
