The University Church, Central Philippine University (Central Philippine University Church), commonly referred as University Church, UC or CPU Church, is located on the main campus of the Central Philippine University, Jaro District, Iloilo City, Philippines. Officially, the church was founded in 1913. The present church building was built and completed in 1970. Notably, the church architecture is resonant of an Indonesian or Malayan style of house built on palm leaves and bamboo and is a famous landmark in Iloilo. It is independent from the University and is a member of Convention of Philippine Baptist Churches (CPBC).

The church seats almost 1,000 people. A denominational church, it hosts weekly and mid week Congregational Christian Protestant worship services. It also hosts several annual special events, such as baccalaureate services and commencements.
