Angelos Bible College

Our Story

The Angelos Bible College had its beginning in 1984 when Dr. Allen R. McFarland was asked by a church member to teach a Greek class at Calvary Evangelical Church. After the conversation, he invited Dr. McFarland to breakfast at his home. The young man had a library with several Greek books and through conversation Dr. McFarland became burdened knowing the young man was overwhelmed with all of this information. The Holy Spirit directed Dr. McFarland, affectionally known as “Pastor Mac”, to teach a Greek class. Only three students attended the first class: Eli Jones Sr, Cliff Ducan and Kenneth Bailey. With its humble beginning, the Angelos Bible College  has grown from a small learning group to a Bible College. It now offers several areas of degree concentrations. Students may earn a Certificate, Associate, Bachelor, or Master Degree in Biblical Studies with four concentrations.

Since the pandemic developed last spring, many students have continued to endure stress and hardship related to loss of employment.
