As the Senior Pastor at The Community Of Faith Church for more than 40 years, Bishop Dixon’s ministry philosophy is guided by Matthew 5:13-16 and Matthew 25:31-46 and other great passages that promote the ministry of Jesus and the role of the church in the earth. Bishop Dixon’s ministry demonstrates the verity that the church must do more outside of its own four walls. Bishop Dixon also serves as the Presiding Prelate of Kingdom Builders Global Fellowship (KBGF). The mission of this fellowship of pastors and churches is to see the Kingdom of God established and executed in the lives of people, in churches, and in communities throughout the nation and world, all for God’s glory.
Bishop Dixon’s message of faith is the Gospel of the Kingdom. His ministry is Kingdom focused and his mission is Kingdom inspired. As an advocate for compassionate confrontation, he promotes offering a hand up to the poor, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, uplifting the oppressed, and serving the least. He has developed numerous Kingdom initiatives with social impact, some of which include: Coats of Compassion, H-Town Cares, and the Light It Up Crusade which ministers the love of Jesus behind prison walls. Bishop Dixon worked to establish the first No Trafficking Zone in the U.S. at NRG Stadium because he believes “the difference we make is the difference that matters.” He is also Co-founder of Loving Kids and Founder and CEO of Good Gang USA, a free S.T.E.A.M. program with a social impact component, designed for youth to develop within them strong minds with social and civic consciousness.
As an innovative social impact leader, Dr. Dixon has been a proponent for racial reconciliation and maximizing diversity through his organization One Family One Future.
