The Party of Bible-abiding Christians (German: Partei Bibeltreuer Christen, PBC) is a conservative evangelical minor political party in Germany. It was founded in 1989. It is against same-sex marriage and legality of abortion. It supports a reference to God in the European Constitution and it strongly supports Israel.

Most members are from Württemberg or Saxony and are members or sympathizers of what Germans call "Free Churches", i.e., Protestants not affiliated with the large Evangelical Church in Germany.

The party's success, however, is very limited on the federal and state levels of government because it never reached the "5% hurdle" of votes cast necessary to get into the parliaments. By contrast, the conservative Christian Democratic Union and Christian Social Union of Bavaria are powerful political forces in Germany (based on the number of votes and offices held). They differ greatly from the PBC though in accepting secularization and being traditionally close to the Roman Catholic Church and the Evangelical Church in Germany.

The party is a member of the European Christian Political Movement (EPCM).
