The Lithuanian Christian Democrats (Lithuanian: Lietuvos krikščionys demokratai, LKD) was a Christian-democratic political party in Lithuania. The party was a member of the European People's Party (EPP) and the European Christian Political Movement.
The LKD was established in 2001 by a merger of the Christian Democratic Union and the Lithuanian Christian Democratic Party, who between them held three seats in the Seimas. A faction opposed to the merger formed a new party, the Lietuvos krikščioniškosios demokratijos partija, chaired by Zigmas Zinkevičius.
The 2004 elections saw the new party receive just 1.4% of the vote, and lose its parliamentary representation. On 17 May 2008, the LKD merged with the Homeland Union, which was renamed to Homeland Union - Lithuanian Christian Democrats as a result.
