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.
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 in Germany's system of proportional representation. In the most recent federal election (2013), the party achieved 0.0 percent of votes.
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 Evangelical Church in Germany and the Roman Catholic Church.
The party is a member of the European Christian Political Movement (EPCM).
