The Liberty Baptist Church is a historic African-American Baptist church located at 701 Oak St. in Evansville, Indiana. It was founded in 1865 as a congregation of former slaves, according to Historic Evansville.[2] The Gothic Revival red brick church was built in 1887, as a replacement after a cyclone destroyed an earlier building.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1]
