Personal Testimony of Pastor Edward Rice. I was saved in 1960 at the age of eight. My father and mother were saved and founding members of Fellowship Baptist Church in Gang Mills New York. My mother was converted form Roman Catholicism, and became a Christian, she stopped praying to Mary and called upon the Lord Jesus Christ to save her. She was thus converted from Catholicism and to the Lord Jesus Christ; She was born again, and I was saved in revival services with Dale and Opel Linbaugh two years later.
In 1995 I retired from the USAF as a systems engineer and became an ordained Baptist Preacher of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ who said "Except ye be converted .... ye cannot enter the kingdom of heaven."
