The Taiwanese Presbyterian Church began in 1962 with the arrival of a Chinese physician who had also studied theology and had immigrated to Brazil. Activities started with meetings in homes in S?o Paulo. The first Taiwanese immigrant church was organized in the same year. With the arrival of new groups of immigrants, the church began to develop, with new churches being organized in several cities in Brazil. The church structured itself as a denomination in 1970, with ties to the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Taiwan. There is at present a movement in the presby toward dialogue, with the thought of eventual incorporation into one of the Synods of the Independent Presbyterian Church of Brazil.
