The Iglesia Ni Cristo Locale of Washington (Tagalog: ), is a chapel of the Philippine-based Christian sect, the Iglesia ni Cristo. Located at Sampaloc, Manila, it was completed on 1948, and it is the First Chapel built in Reinforced Concrete by the Church.

The Church Administration decided to Build a Permanent House of Worship for the Members Registered in Sampaloc, Manila. Brother Felix Y. Manalo tasked Architect Alfredo J. Luz to build a Concrete House of Worship along Washington Street (Now A. Maceda Street) in Sampaloc. It was Dedicated by Brother Manalo in 1948. In 2010 the 62-year-old Chapel underwent Renovation to meet the Standard of the Iglesia ni Cristo Construction and Engineering Department. The Chapel was Upgraded into an Fully Air-Conditioned Chapel and made some Alterations in the Interior and Partially on Exterior of the Chapel. The Chapel is now Part of the Ecclesiastical District of Metro Manila West, and it Gave Birth to Offshoot Locales like La Loma Congregation, Sampaloc Congregation, and Galas (Now Araneta Avenue) Congregation.
