The Macedonian Orthodox Church Ohrid Archbishopric or just Macedonian Orthodox Church (Macedonian: Македонска Православна Црква - Охридска Архиепископија; transliteration: Makedonska Pravoslavna Crkva - Ohridska Arhiepiskopija) is the body of Christians who are united under the Archbishop of Ohrid and Macedonia, exercising jurisdiction over Macedonian Orthodox Christians in the Republic of Macedonia and in exarchates in the Macedonian diaspora.

In 1959, the Holy Synod of the Serbian Orthodox Church gave autonomy to the Macedonian Orthodox Church as the restoration of the historic Archbishopric of Ohrid. and remained in canonical unity with the Serbian Church under their Patriarch. In 1967, on the bicentennial anniversary of the abolition of the Archbishopric of Ohrid, the Macedonian Orthodox Church unilaterally proclaimed its autocephaly and independence from the Serbian Orthodox Church. The Serbian Holy Synod denounced the decision and condemned the clergy as schismatic. Since then, despite various Orthodox and ecumenical efforts, the autocephaly of the Macedonian Orthodox Church is not recognized by other national Orthodox churches in defense of Serbian opposition, or by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
