St. Paul's by-the-sea Protestant Episcopal Church is a historic Carpenter Gothic style Episcopal church located in Ocean City, Worcester County, Maryland. In 1898, John Waggaman of Washington D.C. donated to the congregation two lots "up the beach" at Baltimore Avenue and Third Street. The cornerstone for the new church was laid on June 6, 1900, and the first service was held the following year. It is a frame church with a wood-shingled exterior. There is a corner bell tower and entrance with pointed-arch openings.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.[1]
