Christ Fellowship was organized in 1983 as John Calvin Presbyterian Church. Ed Craft became the pastor in 1986. The name was changed in order to signify that the church is conservative and evangelical, sharing Christ and teaching the scriptures...loving and caring for people. That is the mission of the church.
We encourage everyone to go into the world everyday and interact with their friends, family, and co-workers in the name of Jesus Christ. Everything starts with You
Our goal is to connect people with God, to connect people with others, to connect the world with the church. God called us to make personal connections with the people around us
God wants a personal relationship with all of us. Please contact us if you would like us to help you grow into what God has called you to be!
We see ourselves as a community church desiring to be faithful to the Bible. Also, Ed got tired of explaining who John Calvin was in church history! (A famous16th century protestant reformer who taught "reformed theology".) As he said, "If I am going to witness about someone, my first choice is to witness about Christ! I will get around to John Calvin much later, but I am a Presbyterian who believes in the empowering of the Holy Spirit to transform our lives."
Loving God. Loving People.
Dr. Ed Craft and Ruby met as college students at Tennessee Temple in Chattanooga. We were the only Presbyterians on the campus at the time so boy do we really believe the Lord put us together in the midst of a large Baptist school. Ruby is the daughter of a PCA minister, Henry Schum, and friends of J.R. Faulkner at Highland Park Baptist Church. We went on to seminary and Ruby has been an elementary school teacher, teaching in Hamilton County for years. Isaac Craft is a graduate of Chattanooga State with a degree in Graphic Arts and a graduate of UTC with a degree in Communications. He is busy at work in the church in both music leadership and graphics.
