The purpose of this online library is to promote free Christian learning. All of the documents found on Armenian Apostolic (Orthodox) Church Library can be used fully free of charge for non-commercial purposes only. We encourage you to include materials from this website in parish newsletters, Sunday School, or your own personal study. We are working on a variety of projects and have many expenses. Please consider making a non tax deductible contribution to our efforts:
We currently have a variety of authors, topics, and mp3 sermons; these resources are in English, Modern Armenian, and Krapar. Our collection is growing rapidly, and we already have the Jamagirk Adeni (the 300 page Book of Hourly Prayers) in addition to the Bible in English, Western Armenian, and Eastern Armenian. We hope to soon have such monumental books as the Mashdotz, the complete Sharagan book, and The Teachings According to St. Gregory (in Krapar and hopefully in English as well). Some of our materials involve technical theology, while others are easy reading. To save any of the files to your harddrive, just right-click on the link and select the "Save As" option.
You'll find various categories and subcategories. You can look for books and articles either by subject (e.g., Badarak) or by author (e.g., Findikyan).

Please note:   Some resources on this website teach the doctrine of the Armenian Apostolic (Orthodox) Church (e.g., The Nicene Creed). Other resources are editorials by individual priests. Whereas every Armenian Apostolic Christian should agree with all of our Church's doctrine, they may disagree on particular opinions contained within an editorial. Such disagreement is healthy, and leads to loving discussions of brothers and sisters seeking truth together. And let us also remember that our Church has ordained priests and deacons with the authority and responsibility to teach and preach authoritatively.
