I thank God for the opportunity that he has afforded me to serve as pastor of Narroway True Holiness Church. My start as a pastor was a dubious one in that my upbringing was from a line of pastors as I have witnessed first hand its ups and downs.  I have had some wonderful mentors (most notably my mother) that encouraged me to pursue God's will for my life. After failed attempts to ignore my calling,  I embarked on this fulfilling  journey of leading God's people years ago. 

Over the last thirty plus years, I have been blessed to have a constant companion, confidant, supporter, best friend, and the love of my life, my wife Maureen. We met while we were going to college.  Our relationship started slowly with us getting to know each other and blossomed into a lifetime of commitment and devotion to each other. We came from different backgrounds, but our love for each other grew so much it nullified all the negatives and accentuated the positives of our relationship. We have been avid supporters in each of our individual and combined efforts.  We have been truly blessed with 3 wonderful children. Ray, Brianna and Brandon and 1 grandson Dominic. Experiencing the love within my family is one of the most satisfying aspects  of my life.

It has always been a humbling reminder of my God given purpose, when I look at the serious minded, well respected, accomplished people that God has chosen me to lead.  Leading great people into a higher level of spiritual maturity and God consciousness is a motivating reward that I experience weekly. 

The manifestation of great things in this ministry has been promised, and with my continued pursuit of truth, I know that the promises will soon  be realized.

In April 1973, he was baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and received the Holy Ghost. Having the opportunity to travel extensively with his father across the country, Bishop Simmons grew significantly in the word of the Lord.

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.

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!!!
