The Christian Credit Party was a short-lived Canadian political party founded in 1982 by perennial candidate and social credit activist, John Turmel who has, at various times, been involved in the Social Credit Party of Canada, the Green Party of Canada, and the Libertarian Party of Canada.

Turmel and his brother Raymond ran unsuccessfully in federal by-elections in 1982 under the Christian Credit Party banner. The party disbanded in 1983 due to lack of support. Turmel subsequently founded the Abolitionist Party of Canada with a similar program. The Abolitionist Party nominated candidates in the 1993 federal election.
