Baptist Temple is a historic Baptist church at 360 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn, New York. It was built in 1893-1894 in the Romanesque Revival style and rebuilt after a fire in 1917-1918. It has a brownstone base and superstructure faced with subtly textured brick with brownstone trim. The building features a large rose window and three corner towers.

It is a work of architects Weary & Kramer, and it is a work of Dodge & Morrison.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995. The historic pipe organ was undergoing a multi-year restoration at the time. It was seriously damaged in a three-alarm fire that broke out on July 7, 2010.
