Jubail Church is a 4th-century church building near Jubail, Saudi Arabia.

It originally belonged to the Church of the East, an ancient Nestorian branch of Eastern Christianity in the Middle East. Arab Christians are Indigenous peoples of Western Asia, with a presence there predating the seventh-century Early Muslim conquests in the Fertile Crescent.
