C.E.W. Dorris was born in Portland, Tennessee April 7, 1871.
He was married to Lula Kerr. They had one child. He was
baptized by J. W. Grant in 1889. He began preaching near
Portland, Tennessee in 1890. He attended Nashville Bible
School. He wrote for the Gospel Advocate. He did radio
work on WLAC, Nashville, Tennessee and in Gallatin,
Tennessee. A report in Preachers Of Today said that he
spent thirty-five years evangelizing under many and
varied conditions in eighteen states. Support in early
years for a two weeks meeting was usually $25.00 or
less. Has preached for one congregation monthly for
the past fifty-four years, except when in meetings.
The first person whom he baptized was his mother. He
held a number of debates, some of which were printed.
After his first sermon, a Cumberland Presbyterian
challenged him for a debate. He accepted, went home
with the man, debated, and the man refused to continue
his side of the debate. He wrote commentaries on
Matthew and Mark. He had up to 3,500 volumes in his
library, among which was a complete set of the Gospel
Advocate, which he valued above everything else except
the Bible. David Lipscomb and James A Harding
were his Bible teachers." He said, “Lipscomb had the
best insight of the principles of Christianity of any man
I have ever known.”
