We consider algebras A of continuous complex valued functions, which are given as the set of global sections of a sheaf I on a topological space X. Under the hypothesis that all the higher cohomology groups of the sheaf are zero, we investigate the relationship between ideals in A, kernels of algebra homomorphisms of A into the complex numbers C, and sets of functions vanishing at a point of X. As applications, we obtain some simple proofs of theorems about ideals in certain algebras of holomorphic functions.
