President Serzh Sargsyan’s congratulatory message on the occasion of the 170th Anniversary of the Armenian Evangelical Church

President Serzh Sargsyan sent a congratulatory message on the occasion of the 170th anniversary of the Armenian Evangelical Church:  “I congratulate the Armenian Evangelical Church on the 170th anniversary of its foundation.

The Armenian Evangelical Movement and the Armenian Evangelical Church were established on July 1, 1846, and are an integral part of  our history,  contributing to educational, religious and charitable activities for the past 170 years.

Since Armenia’s independence, the Armenian Evangelical Church participated actively in the homeland of Armenia and Artsakh, active in patriotic activities and the pursuit of the lawful national rights of the Armenian people.

I welcome the fact that the Armenian Evangelical Church is cooperating with the Armenian Apostolic Church and accepts her as the Mother Church.

I am sure with its 170 years of rich experience and great contributions to spirituality and nation building, it will continue in its mission for the benefit of strengthening the Armenian statehood, and universal spiritual revival of the Armenian people,”  said the President in his message
