The Christian Democrat Party (Span: Partido Demócrata Cristiano), also referred to by its acronym of PDC, is one of the three major political parties in Colombia, generally regarded as one of the country's two center-right parties, endorsing Catholicism as the official state religion, implementing a strictly conservative social policy and using a centrist economic policy heavy on charity and social work. The PDC is said to have connections to "liberation theology," although their devotion to battling social injustice has not been manifested in overtly left-wing actions.

Dominant in the 1950's and 1960's, the PDC drifted toward the right with the rise in power of the Republicans in the 1970's, remaining in opposition to both the Republicans and Socialists from 1974 until 2010, when PDC candidate Cristo Zapata won the Presidency, giving the Christian Democrats the Palacio Bolivariano for the first time in 36 years. They are currently part of a coalition in the Colombian Congress with the Republicans, without whom they would have the lowest representation.
