Princeton Free Will Baptist Church, formerly Thankful Baptist Church, is a historic church building at 104 Water Street in Johnson City, Tennessee.

The brick church was built in 1912 to serve Thankful Baptist Church, an African-American congregation. Thankful Baptist Church moved to a new location on Watauga Avenue in 1975. In 1977, the congregation sold the Water Street church property to Princeton Free Will Baptist Church.[2][3][4]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.
