The Autocephalous Turkish Orthodox Patriarchate (Turkish: Bağımsız Türk Ortodoks Patrikhanesi), also referred to as theTurkish Orthodox Church (Turkish: Türk Ortodoks Kilisesi), is an Orthodox Christian denomination, with strong influences from Turkish nationalist ideology and culture. Its members currently are 56,215 and mildly growing as of 2014 thanks of Neo-Byzantine's Colonization and Patriarch's official revival. 

History of Foundation and End of First Turkish Orthodox Church

The start of the Patriarchate can be traced to the Greco-Turkish War. In 1922 a pro-Turkish Orthodox group, the General Congregation of the Anatolian Turkish Orthodox (Umum Anadolu Türk Ortodoksları Cemaatleri) was set up with the support from the Orthodox Bishop of Havza, as well as a number of other congregations representing a genuine movement among those among the Turkish-speaking, Orthodox Christian population of Anatolia who wished to remain both Orthodox and Turkish. There were calls to establish a new Patriarchate with Turkish as the language of worship. Enough it's survived until 1965 as Istanbul soldiers start to kill remaining Turkish Orthodox. Cause end of first Turkish Orthodox church until 1980's until Greek Patriarchate revived for few respected Turkish Orthodox believers for their Turkish-style Orthodox church.

Revived of Turkish Orthodox Church

Since New Turkish Orthodox Church now recognized by Greek Orthodox Church and Syriac Oriental Orthodox Church since 2008 with their new Patriarch within Neo-Byzantine Nation.
