POBox 99, Dresden, NY 14441

Pastor Edward Rice was saved as a young man in Painted Post, New York where he grew up. He married Beverly and left the dairy farm to serve in the USAF in 1972. They had three boys as they served in the military for ten years. In 1982 he finished his Electrical Engineering degree at Ohio State University, via an Airman Education Commissioning Program, and was commissioned as a USAF officer pursuing a research and development career in classified programs. While moving around the USA in the military he was a youth pastor and associate pastor in Independent Baptist Churches near his station. In 1995 he became Captain Rice, USAF retired, and surrendered to be a Baptist Pastor. In 1998 he took the senior pastorate at Good Samaritan Baptist Church, in Dresden, New York where he has been pursuing his theological studies at Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary. Pastor Rice received his second masters degree from LBU in 2013. His son Michael is US Army retired living near Fort Hood Texas, Shane is an Independent Baptist Missionary pastoring Chiesa Biblica Battista, Mazara Del Vallo, Italy, and Matthew is serving our Lord Jesus Christ near Hamilton, NY. Capt Rice has spent seven years teaching math and science with the ABeka Christian High School Curriculum, and seven years teaching college math at community colleges near his church.

 Systematic Theology Study Groups

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

   There is no Baptist Systematic Theology work in print today, i.e. there is no Systematic Theology work that has the inerrant, infallible, verbally inspired word of God as its sole authority, even as Baptists, by definition, have it as their sole authority for all faith and practice. There ought to be. There is a cause.

   You are solicited to join in a five year theological journey which will end with a “Systematic Theology for the Twenty First Century.” The only fare is that you review the work as it is being assembled monthly. All critiques will be welcomed and any born again believer is fully qualified to construct and certainly to critique such a work. A systematic theology is simply drawing a circle around the Holy Bible, and then rationally considering every principle, concept and thought that has been revealed to man by God. It shall be exhaustive, but in this venue, with your help, it need not be exhausting.

   The reward for your participation will be a copy of the completed work. But that will barely compare with the benefit we each will gain in assembling such a work.
