The Armenian Apostolic Church (Armenian: Հայաստանեայց Առաքելական Եկեղեցի, Hayasdaneaytz Arakelagan Yegeghetzi) is the world’s oldest National Church[1][2] and is one of the most ancient Christian communities.[3] Armenia was the first country to adopt Christianity as its official religion in 301 AD, in establishing this church.
