History: The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is touching millions of lives … one heart at a time. Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. As the largest Christian sports ministry in America, FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ.

In October of 2007, Luke Llamas came on staff as the first full-time FCA staff person in our area and began pioneering the ministry of FCA on the Central Coast. The ministry has since grown from impacting one to now seventeen high school and middle school campuses from Paso Robles to Lompoc with over 600 students involved each month. In September of 2010, Ryan Pahler came on staff to help strengthen and grow the ministry presence in this area.

Statement of Faith:
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men (women), regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
