Saints Peter and Paul Church, Smilevo is an Eastern Orthodox Christian church located in the village of Smilevo, in the Republic of Macedonia.

It stands elevated on mountainous terrain, opposite a monastery. The church is used by many residents of Smilevo.

It was begun in 1914, and constructed during World War I by stonemason and builder Cvetko Egumenoski. The church was not completed until 1917 due to the wartime unavailability of building materials.
