Dear Visitor,

A heartfelt welcome to our website. The Armenian Apostolic Church  is the world’s oldest National Church and is one of the most ancient Christian communities. Armenia was the first country to adopt Christianity as its official religion in 301AD, in establishing this church. The Armenian Apostolic Holy Church traces its origins to the missions of Apostles Bartholomew and Thaddeus in the 1st century.

We invite you to experience the real spirit of the Christianity and make lasting friendships with other Armenians. We are waiting for you with open arms.
