About Rev. Michael Dixon: The Rev. Michael Dixon is the third pastor in the history of Christ Ridge Presbyterian Church. Michael and his wife Nikki have been married for more than eleven years. They have two young children, Lewellyn (7) and Boston (5). They met after Nikki had graduated from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC and while she was a member of Christ Ridge Presbyterian. Little did they know that almost 4 years later Michael would be called to be the pastor of her home church. Michael grew up in Charlotte, NC as a covenant child of Christ Covenant Church PCA. He attended Covenant College from 1997-2001 and earned a BA in History. He moved back to Charlotte and attended Reformed Theological Seminary, earning a Masters of Divinity from the school in 2005. He began working in youth ministry in the PCA in Atlanta in 1999 in various churches and positions. Michael was ordained as a PCA pastor in November of 2007 and was called to Christ Ridge as their pastor in March of 2008. He has a great passion to see people walk with Christ, and to see the church continue to be healthy through the teaching of the Word, prayer, and worship.

« John 14:1-14 None

John 14:15-31

15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.

18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 21 Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.” 22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, “Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?” 23 Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father's who sent me.

25 “These things I have spoken to you while I am still with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. 28 You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place you may believe. 30 I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no claim on me, 31 but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us go from here. (ESV)
