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

QUIET! - December 11, 2013
"The work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever" (Isaiah 32:17).
The triune God is in His element within a quiet, resting assured spirit.
"Just as a sinner is taught to rest in the Lord Jesus' shed Blood for his forgiveness, so must the saint rest in the Lord Jesus for his deliverance from the power of sin and the grip of the law yes, and from himself, also. Therefore we should not be in bondage to sin, 'for he that hath died (and that is everyone who is in the Lord Jesus) is justified (or released) from (the power of) sin' (Romans 6:7); and we are now under grace, which does not demand righteousness of us, for the Lord Jesus was made unto us righteousness and sanctification and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30).
"The believer truly walking in the liberty wherewith Christ hath set him free (Galatians 5:1), has Him ever before his eye of faith; delighting that because of Him he is in the Father's favor. He evermore learns to abhor himself as he sees the sinfulness of the old man within, only to delight himself the more in the Lord Jesus who is his life." -W.R.N.
"It is only too possible for us to harbor feelings of resentment even against the Father Himself; and what inner turmoil results from such an attitude. Until we deliberately enter the stillness of the acceptance of His will, we live in chaos. Once we lay aside our rebellion in the tomb, and place our confidence in our Father, and in His love for us in the Son, we are obeying the command, 'Be still,' and we gain an understanding of the God of deliverance we could gain in no other way. Then we shall be in position to help others."
"Their strength is to sit still" (lsaiah 30:7).
