Current Issues

After 9 months of systematic ethnic cleansing of the 120,000 Armenians in Artsakh (aka Nagorno Karabakh) through starvation, Azerbaijan launched a military assault on the Christian inhabitants of this region on September 19, 2023. There are first hand accounts of mass slaughter, women and children being raped in front of their fathers and husbands, beheadings of the elderly, and the sending of pictures of the desecrated bodies of lost children to their parents. Over 100,000 of our Christian brothers and sisters were forcibly deported from their ancestral homelands. This is nothing short of a modern day Genocide. It happened once in 1915, it and it's happening again right now.

"Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?" 

The Armenian Genocide.
1915

In 1915 Turkey carried out a systematic genocide against the Armenian population living within the Ottoman Empire. 1.5 million people (half of the population) were killed. An infamous dictator took inspiration from the Armenian genocide for his own genocide against the Jewish people. His words were as quoted, 

"Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?" 

- Adolph Hitler

The Armenian Genocide was a tragedy that affected not only the Armenian people, but also Christianity. As the genocide took place Christians and Christian history was being destroyed simultaneously and the ability to share the gospel and spread Christianity in the region was dealt a major setback.

A Country of Immense Biblical Importance.

Armenia was the very first country in history to adopt Christianity as its official religion in 301 AD.

The Apostle Thaddeus and Bartholomew preached in Armenia and established the Armenian Church.

Thaddeus came to Armenia in about 43 AD and was martyred in southeastern Armenia. His tomb lies in the Armenian monastery of St. Thaddeus where a chapel was built in the third century. Bartholomew is believed to have arrived in Armenia about 66 AD. He was martyred in Hadamakert, southeast of Lake Van.

 

Armenian people have such a strong connection with the Christianity. Much like the Jewish people; To be Armenian not only denotes ethnicity, but also religion. In Short, being Armenian is synonymous with being a Christian.

Noah: Father of All Armenians.

Mount Ararat is the resting place of Noah's Ark, making it a significant site for Christians worldwide. It is also a symbol of national pride for Armenians who are the direct descendants of Noah and more specifically Japheth.

Unfortunately, Russia during the Soviet Union gifted the mountains of Ararat to Turkey in 1921.

 Armenia:
A strategic country for reaching the lost.

This small country of 3 million people and smaller than the state of Maryland, is surrounded by the Muslim countries Turkey, Azerbaijan, and Iran. These hostile countries have a combined population of around 190 million people. Armenia stands alone as a bastion of the Christian faith in one of the most unreached areas of the world. This small country is strategically positioned to be a light to the lost.
