About Christ Fellowship Hollister

Who are we?

Our fellowship began as First Presbyterian Church of Hollister in 1873. In 2015, after aligning with ECO, we changed our name to Christ Fellowship. We believe in connecting leaders for the ultimate purpose of making disciples of Jesus Christ, and we wanted our name to reflect that! 

What is our mission?

The mission of Christ Fellowship is to be a church that reaches, equips, and loves in the name of Jesus Christ. We strive to reach others because of the call given in Matthew 28:19. We hope to equip one another in the way spoken about in Colossians 3:16. We love one another just as Paul discusses in Philippians 2:3.

We believe... 

In God the Father, the maker of Heaven and of Earth.

Jesus is the Christ, the unique Son of God, who is both Lord and Savior.

The Old & New Testament are the inspired Word of God, authoritative for all of life and practice.

Jesus of Nazareth suffered, was crucified, died, was buried, and was bodily resurrected. 

His death was for our benefit; through it we receive forgiveness and the gift of God’s righteousness. 

The Holy Spirit dwells in the heart of every believer.

He convicts us of sin, comforts and protects us, leads us to salvation and gives us boldness to share our faith. 

The Church consists of all who believe and confess Jesus as Savior and Lord, and is called to be salt and light in the world, through its mission of love, justice and reconciliation. 

Jesus will one day physically return to Earth and in His mercy and justice will judge the living and the dead and gather His Church to Himself for all eternity.
