Meet Pastor Brice
I grew up in Southern California and first felt a call to the ministry when I was only 9 years old. I met my lovely bride Ginger while attending Pacific Bible College, (now Azusa Pacific) and we have been happily married for 53 years. I first served in the ministry as an assistant pastor and then as pastor. I have been pastoring in the church for over 50 years serving mostly in the Southern California area. I was pastor of Westminster Bible Church in North Hollywood, a church of Reformed and Presbyterian heritage, for 25 years. It was while I was pastor of that congregation that I with the congregation, finding ourselves to be of like mind, voted to become a part of the Reformed Church in the United States. I came to Northwest Arkansas in 2003 with a desire to start a church of the Reformed and Presbyterian heritage here in the beauty of the Ozarks.
I was raised in a non-reformed church. As a young pastor in a particular denomination that questioned the keeping power of God in one’s salvation, I found myself, even though a pastor, unsure of my own salvation because of that teaching. While pastoring churches in the San Diego area I found myself struggling with the fact that the Scriptures revealed God as an absolutely Sovereign God. I struggled, because although the Bible clearly taught this truth I knew that the church I was part of did not accept this teaching. After literally arguing day after day with God in my study God was gracious and permitted me to be introduced to the Westminster Standards. I began a study of the Westminster Confession of Faith and became convinced by the grace of God that this was clearly what the Bible taught. I now hold to the great doctrinal standards of the Reformation with a deep fervency and I am greatly burdened to help others understand the comfort of knowing that there is an absolutely sovereign God who saves and keep his elect in both time and eternity.
I would love to hear from you,
In His service,
Wes Brice, Pastor
About Our Congregation
We were founded in 2003 as a mission church of the Reformed Church in the United States.
We do not pretend to be perfect but take comfort in the fact that we are sinners saved by grace. This is why we are not critical of one-another, but truly care for one-another and want to be ready to encourage, help and pray for others in our congregation. We are bound together by a love for Christ, a love for each other, and a love for the written Word of God.
We hold to the historic doctrinal standards of the reformation: The Belgic Confession of Faith, The Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dort. The Bible is our only authority but we take comfort in the fact that the above doctrinal statements are all in full agreement with the Word of God.
We are a small but growing, friendly congregation committed to making the Reformed teachings of God’s Word available to Northwest Arkansas.
It is good to know there really are answers to life's problems. And those answers can be found in God's Word, the Bible. Oh, our problems aren't going to just vanish, but God does promise to give us the wisdom and patience to deal with them, if we seek His help in faith.
At Grace Reformed Church, we recognize this fact and have made a special commitment to be supportive of one another, recognizing that we are all dealing with pressures and problems, and genuinely need the presence of God's grace in our lives.
I welcome you to come and be a part of this caring congregation.
Yours in His service,
