The Conservative Christian Party of the Belarusian People's Front Belarusian:Кансэрватыўна-Хрысьціянская Партыя - БНФ, Kanservatyŭna-Chryścijanskaja Partyja BNF) (Russian:Консервативно-христианская партия — БНФ;, is a political party in Belarus, that opposes the government of president Alexander Lukashenko. It was formed by a wing of the Belarusian People's Front in 1999.

The last legislative elections, 13–17 October 2004, were boycotted by the party, led by Zianon Pazniak. These elections fell according to the OSCE/ODIHR Election Observation Mission [1] significantly short of OSCE commitments. Universal principles and constitutionally guaranteed rights of expression, association and assembly were seriously challenged, calling into question the Belarusian authorities' willingness to respect the concept of political competition on a basis of equal treatment. Principles of an inclusive democratic process—whereby citizens have the right to seek political office without discrimination, candidates can present their views without obstruction, and voters can learn the views and discuss them freely—were largely ignored.

The Conservative Christian Party refused to join in the oppositional coalition led by Alaksandar Milinkievič in 2006, as CCP cited inability to ensure ethical behavior in Lukashenko's administration, in the voting process, and in the calculation of votes. The election ended cycle ended with voting falsifications and was not acknowledged by EU and United States.
