Church of the Holy Cross, also known as the Holy Cross Episcopal Church, is an historic church in Stateburg, in the High Hills of Santee near Sumter, South Carolina. It is located on land donated earlier by General Thomas Sumter, a resident of Stateburg, and its walls were constructed of rammed earth. Across the road from the church is Borough House Plantation, the home of Dr. William Wallace Anderson, chairman of the committee that built the church. In 1820, Dr. Anderson had built his own house of rammed earth on the plantation. With its additional rammed earth outbuildings, the plantation complex is also a National Historic Landmark.

In 1973, Holy Cross was added to the National Register of Historic Places, and was declared a National Historic Landmark. Joel Roberts Poinsett and many other 19th century South Carolinians are buried in Holy Cross' historic churchyard.

The Church of the Holy Cross is still an active parish in the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina. The Rev. Thomas W. Allen is the current rector.
