The Imperial Order of Our Lord Jesus Christ (Portuguese: Imperial Ordem de Nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo) is an order of knighthood instituted by emperor Pedro I of Brazil on December 7, 1822, on the basis of the Portuguese Order of Christ. The order originated in the Portuguese Order of Christ founded by Pope John XXII and King Denis of Portugal in 1318. Today the order is still conferred by the Pope and the Portuguese Republic, but no longer by Brazil.

The order was cancelled on March 22, 1890, by the interim government of the United States of Brazil.
