A.C. Dixon

A.C. Dixon (1854 - 1925)

Was a Baptist pastor, Bible expositor, and evangelist, popular during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. With R.A. Torrey he edited an influential series of essays, published as the The Fundamentals (1910-15), which gave fundamentalist Christianity its name.

From Boston, he moved in 1906 to Chicago's Chicago Avenue Church, which had been founded by Dwight L. Moody. Two years after he arrived there, the church changed its name to the Moody Church, and he continued there until 1911. While at Moody Church, he also became a syndicated columnist, with his writings appearing in newspapers such as the Baltimore Sun, Boston Daily Herald and Chicago Daily News. He then crossed the Atlantic and ministered at London's Metropolitan Tabernacle, the church formerly pastored by Charles Spurgeon and other notable preachers, where he spent the war years. During this time, he often spoke at great Bible conferences. He preached there until his retirement in 1919. He was called out of retirement in 1922 and became the first pastor of University Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland.

Amzi Clarence Dixon was a well-known pastor, Bible expositor and evangelist, popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. With R.A. Torrey he helped edit the influential journal The Fundamentals which helped give fundamentalist Christianity its name. He was also the brother of the more controversial minister and playwright Thomas Dixon.

The consistent theme throughout Dixon's career was a staunch advocacy for Fundamentalist Christianity during that movement's developmental period. His preaching was often fiery and direct, confronting various forms of apostasy. He spoke against a wide range of things, from Roman Catholicism to Henry Ward Beecher's liberalism, Robert Ingersoll's agnosticism, Christian Science, Unitarianism and higher criticism of the Bible.

There is a sunrise with its dawn like that in the Old Testament Scriptures. The fore gleam begins with the promise in the curse upon t... Read More

THERE is a great magnet in a college laboratory so strong in its drawing power that it can lift from the floor, two feet distant, over two hundred pounds of solid iron. The cold steel that has this magnetic power has been magnetized by electric current. There is something in Jesus Christ on the Cros... Read More
