Bishop, Anthony D. Dixon, Sr. “Bishop T”

Anthony D. Dixon, Sr., affectionately known as Bishop “T”, was born and raised in holiness by his natural and spiritual father, Apostle Albert E. Dixon Sr. and Mother Sarah Dixon. Although knowing the truth of God, he sometimes did the opposite of God’s plan for him.

After running for years, Bishop Dixon finally came to the reality of the calling that was placed over his life and submitted to God’s will. It was a three year transformation, of which Bishop Dixon spent many days fasting, praying, studying and submitting to the Word of God. When God was finished with the transformation he was a new “Tony”.  He was appointed the International Youth President in 2002 and ordained an Elder of the Churches of God and True Holiness Organization in 2004.  In April, 2008, Bishop Dixon was elevated to the office of Assistant Pastor for True Holiness Temple. In June, 2009, he became a Suffragan Bishop and July 2, 2010 he was consecrated to the office of Bishop.

Bishop T is highly instrumental in his father’s vision and ministry at True Holiness Temple.  He has been about his father’s business for about 8 years. Bishop T is also a profound teacher and preacher of the Word of God.

Bishop T is the husband of one wife (Lady Yvette Dixon) and the father of five beautiful children.

He teaches the saints: “We are the HEAD, not the tail; We are the Lender, not the borrower; We are Above only, and never beneath.” He encourages everyone to STAND on the Word of God and believes that a Holy Life is the Best Life!!!



Albert E Dixon Sr., Chief Apostle, Emeritus

A pastor of pastors, bridge builder, compassionate leader, faithful husband, and greatly respected by his peers as a man of integrity…Chief Apostle Albert E. Dixon, Sr. has labored vigorously in the kingdom of God in order to teach the doctrine of the apostles in these last days. He was filled with the precious gift of the Holy Spirit at the age of ten and has been serving the lord ever since.

After miraculously surviving an accident, which killed his younger brother, he went into ministry full time and was soon named the National Evangelist of the Churches of God and True Holiness in June of 1967. Married with children, Bishop traveled extensively all over the eastern seaboard and in foreign countries preaching the gospel. He can divulge countless stories of how God protected and provided for him and his family during those trying ;times. He began his pastorate in November of 1967 in a storefront in Cleveland, Ohio, with his wife, Mother Sarah R. Dixon, and four other members.

The congregation has multiplied and relocated several times. It is now housed in the multi-million dollar historical complex you see on our home page. The Temple potentially seats approximately 700 members and has a huge stage, which permits us to facilitate large concerts and theatrical events.

In June 1978, Bishop was elected to be the Presiding Prelate of the Churches of God and True Holiness, Inc. and in June 1996, he was consecrated as an Apostle. He has worked tirelessly to unite Pentecostal Apostolic believers in an effort to destroy the kingdom of darkness. Bishop spearheaded the international fellowship known as the Alliance of Apostolic Churches of Christ Jesus (A.A.C.C.J), and also was a catalyst in the formation of a similar group of pastors in his hometown of Cleveland called the Cleveland Apostolic Ministerial Fellowship (C.A.M.F). This organization is a fellowship of like-minded pastors, who have united in an effort to provide formal education and outreach ministries to the community. Bishop Dixon is a man wholly devoted to the Lord, a man of impeccable integrity and dedicated service. He has a heart of mercy and compassion that attracts anyone who meets him, and yet he stands firm on issues of faith and sanctification that many pastors are afraid to teach or uphold. He teaches that holiness is not ;a denomination but “a way of life”! A passionate preacher and anointed to heal the sick, Bishop solicits your prayers as God is taking him to a greater level in mentoring other pastors in the U.S. and in foreign countries. It has been recently prophesied many times over his life, that, “his best days are still ahead of him”. He is determined to reach and teach as many people as possible, that, “A Holy Life is the Best Life”!
