According to its followers, the Ethiopian Orthodox Tehadeso Church (Amharic: የኢትዮጵያ ኦርቶዶክስ ተሃድሶ ቤተክርስትያን?) (distinct from the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church) stands to preserve the country's orthodox traditions, while believing in the full Gospel of the scripture. Most of its members reside in the Oromia Region of Ethiopia. However, it has several members (migrants) globally. Since most of its members were former traditional Orthodox, some believe this reformed form of Orthodox will mend relationships between Orthodox Christians and P'ent'ay Christians in Ethiopia.
