Who we are:
The mission and objective of The Empowerment Temple is very simple. We are comprised of Evangelists, teachers, ministers, missionaries and children of god who believe in effective Kingdom Building. Our ministry desires to reach out to the people in our communities that are in need of job opportunities, continuing their education, health and medical needs, school supplies and uniforms for our children, food, clothes and shelters and being the all around voice for the voiceless. We thrive on effective leadership and believe that we are all leaders, teachers and evangelists in our own right. The Empowerment Temple believes in fighting for whats right even if we have to stand alone. Lively Stone is built on the core principles and values of true intergrity, courage, activism, leadership, and giving honor were honor is due.
What We Believe:
We believe: that all men and women are created equal and should not be judged because of the color of their skin, gender, age or even were they came from.
We believe: in the Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
We believe: in the Baptism and that one shall and will be set free when they declare that Jesus is Lord and the Savior of our lives and that we shall all repent for our sins and ask for forgiveness from the author and the finish of our faith.
We believe: that God is the creator of all things that exist and that everything we do whether its inside or outside of the four walls of the church, We must continue to glorify and magnify his name.
We believe: that everything we do must have a purpose and must be apart of God's agenda.
We believe: that God's word must be preached to the entire world and that we must continue to spread God's love to his people.
We believe: in effective leadership, kingdom building and community activism.
It all started off as a vision straight from God himself. One day Bishop Dixon was sitting at his kitchen table and he had a revelation that he would soon Pastor a church. Even though Bishop Dixon had been a licensed and ordained minister for quite some time, he was still running away from his calling. One day The Bishop woke up from a dream that he was Pastoring a church and that his following of flock was too much for him to believe. At his kitchen table he began writing down everything he saw in his dream, everything from how the pulpit was set up, how many ministers and deacons were present, how many members were in the service and after that he then decided that God was really revealing just what he had in store for The Bishop. After waiting a while to make sure God had really called him to Pastor, Bishop Dixon then embarked on a journey to find a facility that could hold the church for its first few services and he found just that. On March 29, 2015 we had our first worship service at 4688 Grand and Itaska in a store front building and the church was then named Holy Temple Christian Assembly. We had such an amazing impact on that location and neighborhood to the point that we gained not only their membership but also their trust. After just a few months at this location, the facility became too small to hold the worship services and it was not functionable enough for the vision God had placed on The Bishops heart. After we finally relocated, the church was then renamed St. Dixon Temple Cathedral to celebrate the Man of God that started what God birthed in him. In 2019 the church was then renamed for a final time "The Empowerment Temple Church", mandated to empower the community and the people in it for effective evangelism and leadership.
