Dear friends, 

Although Rev. Aaron Kayayan passed away ten years ago, his legacy in Armenia is still alive and continues to inspire those in Armenia who read our literature and listen to our broadcasts. We are grateful that the Lord has allowed this work to Armenia to continue for these past ten years under the direction of his son, Rev. Eric Kayayan and the committee for Christians for Armenia.

Our committee held its annual meeting at the beginning of the month to lay out the work for the year to come. One of the decisions made due to budget constraints was unfortunately to reduce our radio broadcasting from six programs per week to four programs per week. This is quite a disappointment as those two additional broadcasts are crucial to counter the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormon broadcasts which they can air daily because of their large financial resources and zeal. The importance of our work in Armenia is illustrated by the many letters we receive, out of which here are two excerpts below:

“I learned from your broadcasts that all questions must be answered through faith. Through God’s blessing, your radio broadcasts help to save many souls. May God help all of us to stay faithful to his commands to heal our pain, especially within the Church.”

-Sona H.

 “Hello, I’m a radio listener.

Often while driving I listen to the radio messages broadcast by Radio Hay.

I learn many things from them and get the answers for many unexplainable questions.

When I heard the message ‘Everything is accomplished’ it interested me greatly and I had a wish to listen and follow the other series and its continuation, so I started to follow the broadcasts.

With pleasure I want to share with my thoughts and feelings concerning the series of radio messages.

I learned that the water for baptism has a double function and that baptism is the symbol of what Jesus Christ has done on the Cross. I also understood the meaning of replacing circumcision by baptism.

Now in turn I can explain to my friends that each of these signs witnesses about the salvation promise of

the Lord. I now understand that we shouldn’t go back to the former signs we used to do, as it would mean

we are waiting for the realization of the promises given to us by the Lord and that we do not believe the

crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

One more very important thing I learned from these messages. This is about the offerings which are

very popular in Armenia. Jesus Christ-the Lamb of God was sacrificed for the sake of our salvation and

remission of our sins.

Thank you for the broadcasting.”

-Marina H

These concepts may seem very basic to us Christians in North America, but when you consider years of living under communism and a very static religion, Armenian Christians are in desperate need of discovering the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a sad irony that the first nation to adopt Christianity as its state religion in 301 a.d. is that it needs to discover the heart and essence of Christianity.

Once again, we ask that you consider giving to the work of Christians for Armenia to help us continue our work of educating and equipping Armenian Christians. Individual donations can be made by using the PayPal function on our website, www.christiansforarmenia.org.

In Christ,

The Committee for Christians for Armenia

What We Believe

We believe with all our heart in the ecumenical creeds of the Christian Church: The Apostle’s Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. We subscribe to the following confessions of the Reformation: the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession, the Canons of the Synod of Dordt, and the Westminster Standards. Rev. Kayayan subscribed particularly to the Confession of Faith of the Reformed Church of France (1559), having been converted to the Reformed faith through the pastoral and theological writings of John Calvin.
