Harbin Nangang Christian Church (simplified Chinese: 哈尔滨南岗基督教会; traditional Chinese: 哈爾濱南崗基督教會) is a Protestant (formerly Lutheran) church in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, China. The current building was built in 1916 and is located in Church Street, along East Dazhi Avenue, northeast of Hongbo Square. Its address is: No. 252, East Dazhi Avenue, Nangang District, Harbin. The church is next to the Eastern Orthodox Church of the Intercession and is almost identical in color to the Orthodox church beside it, with the same red walls and green roofs.
