Inscription.  The church began in 1902 as the Presbyterian -Methodist Church of Dixie as a result of an agreement between the minister, Mr. Ziegler and Mr. Ivey, who donated the land on North Road for the church. In 1904 the Red River Presbytery organized the church as the Dixie Presbyterian Church. In 1934 they purchased from the Caddo Parish School Board a two story brick school building in Dixie built in 1913 and renovated the first floor for church services. In 1964 a tornado destroyed the entire roof of the building and it was then restored as a one story building. In 1996 the Dixie congregation merged with the Belcher Presbyterian Church to form the Belcher-Dixie Presbyterian Church. The Dixie building was then purchased by the Ebenezer Baptist Church, the current owners.
