California Christian College
About Our College
It was founded in 1955 by 48 Free Will Baptist Churches who perceived a need for trained pastors in the western part of the United States. The first classes were held in the First Free Will Baptist church of Richmond, California. The college then relocated to 4 acres (16,000 m2) on the corner of University and Winery. Since its founding, the college has operated continuously except for years 1985–86, when the governing board re-evaluated the college's needs and mission. In 2015, Cal Christian College moved to a temporary location at 5364 E. Belmont Avenue, the campus of Harmony Freewill Baptist Church in Fresno, as the board and administration prepare to begin construction on a new campus. CCC offers both associate's and bachelor's degrees, ranging from liberal studies to Christian ministry.
