It has been 121 years since the founding of The Armenian Presbyterian Mission of West Hoboken, NJ, originally led by Dr. Haroutune Toumayan. Since 1898, The Armenian Presbyterian Church has seen many changes. However, through the years, we have proudly stayed steadfast and true to our Mission Statement:

“To teach people to confess Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. To express our love of God and neighbor as taught by Christ, within our families, Church and community.”
