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.

IN-BORN MINISTRY - March 11, 2014
"It is not you who chose Me, but it is I who chose you and appointed you that you might go and be fruitful" (John 15:16, Wey.).
We must be born into our ministry, our service; and it must be born in us. Thus it will be a sharing of life, through which others will be born and will "grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18).
"Our Father will never put work or service in the place of character; and, if we do that, eternity will reveal that, however much we may have done, we are very small amongst the inhabitants of the Land, whose stature will be measured by 'the measure of Christ.' It would be well if all who contemplate or are engaged in the work of God were governed by this one absolute final law: that, both as to themselves and as to those amongst whom they minister, the ultimate test is--not how much work is done, but how much of Christ is present, or results from the sharing." -T. A-S.
"The Gospel can never be fully preached by the eloquence of the evangelist; it finds its true authority only in the lives of those it has laid hold of. We live in a day when it is easy to evade the Cross worked out in our lives, and in which we are apt to place our confidence in modern methods, and techniques of evangelism. But lacking the solid evidence of godly living and devotion to the Lord Himself, these will become 'a fanfare of trumpets or the crashing of cymbals--nothing more' (1 Corinthians 13:1, Philippians) ." -J.C.M.
"Ye are My witnesses, saith the Lord, and My servant whom I have chosen" (Isaiah 43:10).
