"Am I wrong about this? Did Christianity ever have an actual sphere of power in the Holy Land before the Muslims took over?"

No. Jewish followers of Jesus were ostracized from the synagogue after they refused to participate in the Bar Kochba revolt. Non-Jewish Christians didn't really care about Judea, and in many cases were anti-semitic. Try reading Justin Martyr's "Dialogue With Trypho the Jew" to see the extent of the polemic.
