Christ Lutheran Church (previously Christ English Lutheran Church) was a United Lutheran church located on the corner of 20th Street North and 14th Avenue North in Druid Hills. It was constructed in 1921. The Gothic revival building had bell-cot over the front door similar to St. Andrew's Episcopal Church. Day & Sachs were the contractors for the construction.

The church was established as a mission of the United Synod of the South in the 1910s. In 1918 it has 86 members. Prior to constructing its 14th Avenue building it met in a building on the north east corner of 7th Avenue North and 23rd Street North.

In December 1951, the church helped found Shades Valley Evangelical Lutheran Church in Homewood with 59 charter members.

After Christ Lutheran closed, its building became the home of Lily Grove Missionary Baptist Church.
