Malbis Memorial Church is a Greek Orthodox church located in Baldwin County, Alabama meant to resemble the Chrysospyliotissa Church in Athens, Greece.

The church is dedicated to Jason Malbis, a Greek businessman who established a plantation in the area. His remains are interred in a crypt to the right of the iconostasis.

Officially dedicated on January 3, 1965, the opening service was conducted by the Greek Orthodox Archbishop of North and South America, Archbishop Iakovos.

The church welcomes visitors, and its doors are open nearly every day of the year until 5:00 pm.
