The Malagasy Protestant Church in France or (Egliese Protestante Malagache in French) was founded in 1959 by Malagasy students in France with the agreement of the Federation of Protestant Churches in Madagascar. Its members belong to the Church of Jesus Christ in Madagascar and the Lutheran Church in Madagascar living in France. It has 25 parishes with 8,000 members and of whom 6,000 are baptised members and 4,000 admitted to Lord supper. The Heidelberg Catechism, Apostles Creed, Athanasian Creed and Nicene Creed are the officially recognised confessions.[1]

Since 1999 it is a full member of the World Communion of Reformed Churches.[2]
