HISTORY AND MISSION OF TSA

The history of our seminary begins with those who many years ago established and guided the Armenian Evangelical Baptist movement. Enduring many persecutions and trials during the 20th century, they became only more convinced of the need for educated, trained servants of the Gospel, for the advancement and strengthening of the Church in Armenia .In 1998 the first lectures of the Theological Seminary of Armenia were held on the premises of the Central Baptist Church in Yerevan. In 2001, the seminary graduated its first seventeen students.Groundbreaking for the seminary’s own educational building took place in the city of Ashtarak in May of 2000. By January 2003 both the educational building and a separate dormitory had been fully constructed. Today the seminary has an enrollment of 50 students, comprising two programs: Preachers and Christian Education.In training and sending out men and women to witness for Christ, plant churches and teach believers to grow in their spiritual walk, TSA is fulfilling the mission for which the Lord has certainly called us. Our mission further consists in setting the highest standards of faithfulness to the Word of God and its life-changing applications in order to fully equip the Church in a newly independent Armenia to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
