In 1912 the colonial government decided that northern New Guinea was to remain an exclusively Prot mission field, while the southern half of the island was reserved for the Catholic missions. In 1928, however, the latter started work in Prot territory, whereupon the Protestant Church invaded the regions of Fak-Fak and Merauke in the south. In 1935, when the Protestant Church in the Moluccas (GPM no. 36) was given autonomy, these regions were incorporated into the GPM. However, as the center of the church in Ambon was far away and an increasingly large part of the membership belonged to the indigenous population of Irian, the GPM classes in Irian became an independent church (May 25, 1985).
