Differences of the 7 major denomination about : Angels

Recommended Posts

Christian denominations all believe in angels, which appear frequently in the Bible. Here are some of the specific doctrines:

  • Anglican/Episcopal: Angels are "the highest beings in the scale of creation...their work consists in the worship of God, and in the service of men." ("The Catholic Religion: A Manual of Instruction for Members of the Anglican Church" by Vernon Staley, page 146.)
  • Assembly of God: Angels are spiritual beings sent by God to minister to believers (Hebrews 1:14). They are obedient to God and glorify God (Psalm 103:20; Revelation 5:8–13).
  • Baptist: Most Baptists believe God created an order of spiritual beings, called angels, to serve Him and do his will (Psalm 148:1–5; Colossians 1:16). Angels are ministering spirits to the heirs of salvation. They are obedient to God and glorify God (Psalm 103:20; Revelation 5:8–13).
  • Lutheran: "Angels are God’s messengers. Elsewhere in the Bible, angels are described as spirits...The word 'angel' is actually a description of what they do ... They are beings who do not have a physical body." (LCMS)
  • Methodist: Founder John Wesley wrote three sermons on angels, referring to biblical evidence.
  • Presbyterian: Beliefs are discussed in Presbyterians TodayAngels
  • Roman Catholic: "The existence of the spiritual, non-corporeal beings that Sacred Scripture usually calls "angels" is a truth of faith...They are personal and immortal creatures, surpassing in perfection all visible creatures." Source: Catechism - 2nd Edition
