Belmont Methodist-Episcopal Church, also known as Metropolitan Community Church of the Blue Ridge, is a historic Methodist Episcopal church located in the Belmont neighborhood of Roanoke, Virginia. It was built between 1917 and 1921, and is a three-story, brick Late Gothic Revival style church. It features a tall bell tower, complex roof form, steeply-pitched gables and parapets, large pointed arch windows, crenellated corner towers, buttresses, cast-concrete quatrefoils and other detailing.

"Observe especially the expanding auditorium. Main auditorium seats 440; Parlour adjoining, 75; Adult Assembly room, 260; Gallery 225; grand total in sight and hearing of the pulpit, 1,000."

In one notice from 1917, H. L. Cain is named the architect of the church building, and the cost of the building was initially budgeted for $50,000.00.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2011.
