The European Christian Political Movement (ECPM) is a European political party that unites national parties from across Europe that share Christian politics. The member parties are generally more socially conservative and Eurosceptic than the European People's Party. The ECPM unites parties with a Christian social view.

The party was founded in November 2002 in Lakitelek, Hungary. It elected its first board in January 2005, and was registered in the Netherlands in September 2005. The first ECPM president was Peeter Võsu of the Party of Estonian Christian Democrats. The party has thirty members from across sixteen countries. Youth movements are united in ECPYouth. The youth organisation started in 2004 and installed its first board in summer 2005.

The ECPM for the 2014-2019 term had six Members of the European Parliament: Peter van Dalen of ChristianUnion (NL), Bas Belder of the Dutch Reformed Party (SGP) (NL), Branislav Škripek of OL'aNO (SK), Arne Gericke of Bündnis C (DE), Marek Jurek of Right Wing of the Republic (PL) and Kazimierz Ujazdowski (PL). All six MEPs sat with the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR).

After the most recent 2019 European Parliament election, the party is now represented by 3 MEPs: Peter Van Dalen of the ChristianUnion, Bas Belder of the SGP, and Helmut Geuking of the Family Party of Germany. Peter Van Dalen sits with the European People's Party Group while the others sit with the ECR.
