The Church of the Red Gospel or Shamkoretsots Sourb Astvatsatsin Church is a ruined 18th century Armenian church in the Avlabar district of Old Tbilisi, Tbilisi, Georgia.

It was built in 1735 or 1775 or 1808, and renovated during the 19th century. According to Armenian sources, on April 13, 1989, the church was "blown up" or "destroyed.". Georgian officials deny that it was blown up, and ascribed its destruction to the intensity of an earthquake that had struck Tbilisi a day before. At 40 meters, it was the tallest Armenian church in Tbilisi. Today it stands in ruins, with its cupola gone.
