Armenia holds an interesting place in the history of the Church. In 301 A.D Armenia was the first nation to accept the Christian faith. Armenian Christians have also suffered horrible persecution through the ages, even quite recently. Today this faith is being rekindled through the work of pastor Kayayan.

Gospel to ArmeniaWritten by Rev. H.A. Bergsma
Armenia is located between Russia and Iran, and according to the Bible, is the source of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers (Gen.2:10-14). The mountain of Ararat is also to be found in Armenia, which as you know, is the place where the ark came to rest after the great flood (Gen.8:4). Some believe that the garden of Eden may once have been located in Armenia as well. But today Armenia is hearing the Gospel again by way of radio, TV and tapes, through the work of pastor Kayayan. His work as radio pastor appears to be blessed. Havadk Yev Guiank (Life and Faith Hour) is broadcast from several stations in Armenia. A pamphlet promoting this work states, "These messages seek to bring the whole counsel of God to the whole person in every area of life. Some are evangelistic, others deal with doctrine, church history, liturgy, or catechism. Topics dealing with ethics, apologetics, cults, and other controversial subjects are presented from a consistently Reformed standpoint."
