Gothic Christianity refers to the Christian religion of the Goths and sometimes the Gepids, Vandals, and Burgundians, who may have used Wulfila's translation of the Bible into Gothic and shared common doctrines and practices. Gothic Christianity is sometimes considered a type of Germanic Christianity.

The Gothic Christians were followers of Arius, a Christian whose ideas were denounced by the Catholic Church as heretical early in the Fourth Century. Arius regarded Jesus as a prophet who was of a lesser creation than God. The Goths rejected the doctrine of the Trinity as it developed. Gothic Christianity was an inclusive religion that tolerated diverse beliefs. The Goths translated the Bible into the Gothic language. Portions of this translation survive.
