The photo above shows Dr. Dixon, in blue on the right, and his dear wife Wanda, in white next to Dr. Dixon, in January 2019 with the weekly Bible study class he teaches.
The Lord used Dr. Greg Dixon, a true hero of the faith, to build one of the largest Independent Baptist Churches in America, Indianapolis Baptist Temple. During the time he was pastor of IBT, from the late 1950s until the 1990s, he and other IBT members led many to the Lord and many were added to the local church.
Dr. Dixon learned in the late 1970s into the 1980s that legal status for churches violates New Testament church doctrine and grieves the Lord Jesus Christ. He set out to rid IBT of her unholy alliances with the state and federal government standing firm for that cause and educating other believers and churches on God’s desired relationship between church and state and helping new churches to begin as churches under Christ and Christ alone and already established churches to come out from under civil government controls and organize as churches of Christ. He continues that fight until this day.
The Biblical Law Center, founded in the 1980s and directed by Attorney Al Cunningham, helped churches who wanted to operate as churches under Christ only. He was assisted by legal assistant Barbara Ketay helping churches to remain under Christ as non-legal entities such as non-profit corporations and 501(c)(3) religious organizations. He helped IBT to come out from the authority of Caesar in the 1980s. After Brother Cunningham passed away in 2004, Dr. Dixon took over administration and leadership of the BLC after.
Attorney Cunningham started the BLC in the 1980s and administered it until his death in 2004. Cunningham’s wife then gave the BLC to Dr. Dixon. Until 2018, Dr. Dixon and then his son, Greg A. Dixon, continued the work with the assistance of his dad. From 2005 until 2011 Jerald Finney worked with the BLC.
In early 2017, after Ms. Ketay went home to be with the Lord, Attorney Jerald Finney again assisted the Dixons and the BLC. In early 2018, Finney became National Director of the BLC and remained so until late 2018 when the work was continued under the Churches Under Christ Ministry of Charity Baptist Tabernacle. Dr. Dixon graciously continues to advise and assist Finney as the work goes forward.
By the grace of God and for His Glory this work will continue. Please pray for that end.

- “Authority, The Greatest Thing In The Universe,” Dr. Greg Dixon 2005. This sermon explains the importance of authority and power and correct doctrine. It explains how great men of God can proceed according to some false doctrine and the consequences. For example, John and Charles Wesleys’ teachings led to the tongues movement and all its modern derivatives and adnerents such as TD Jakes, Joycd Meyers, Kenneth Hagan, etc.
