Orthodox Presbyterian Church of New Zealand

The Orthodox Presbyterian Church of New Zealand was a Christian denomination formed in New Zealand in the 1960s. It was organized by George Wallace, who lead it as a breakoff of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand because he felt that the church had adopted too much liberal theology.

George Wallace was later fundamental in the formation of Grace Presbyterian Church of New Zealand.
