The American Society of Church History (ASCH) was founded in 1888 with the disciplines of Christian denominational and ecclesiastical history as its focus. Today the society's interests include the broad range of the critical scholarly perspectives, as applied to the history of Christianity and its relationship to surrounding cultures in all periods, locations and contexts. The society was founded by the classic church historian Philip Schaff.

The ASCH records are housed at the Presbyterian Historical Society in Philadelphia.
