Swedenborgian Church is a Swedenborgian church significant for its architecture in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, California. It is regarded as one of California's earliest pure Arts and Crafts buildings. The first pastor of the church the Reverend Joseph Worcester bought the land and worked with the architects to design the church.[1][4][5] It remains essentially the same as when it was built.

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 2004.[3]
