The Johanneskirche is a Protestant church in Saarbrücken, Germany, completed in 1898. It is located in the district of St. Johann (Saar), opposite the town hall of St. Johann.

In the monument list of the Saarland, the church is listed as a single monument. The church is assigned to the Saar-West church district of the Evangelical Church in the Rhineland.
