What is Christian Science?

A free Gift Bag is available in our foyer.

It contains a copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures - the textbook of Christian Science and copies of recent periodicals which explain how people are using these ideas today.

 

What is Christian Science

"What is the Principle of Christian Science? It is God, the Supreme Being, infinite and immortal Mind, the Soul of man and the universe. It is our Father, which is in heaven. It is substance, Spirit, Life, Truth, and Love, – these are the deific Principle."
"To live so as to keep human consciousness in constant relation with the divine, the spiritual, and the eternal, is to individualize infinite power; and this is Christian Science."

Miscellany, Mary Baker Eddy

How can Christian Science heal?

"The physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in Jesus' time, from the operation of divine Principle, before which sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and sin to reformation. Now, as then, these mighty works are not supernatural, but supremely natural. They are the sign of Immanuel, or 'God with us,' — a divine influence ever present in human consciousness and repeating itself, coming now as was promised aforetime,"
'To preach deliverance to the captives of sense, and recovering of sight to the blind. To set at liberty them that are bruised."

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy

Who are Christian Science Practitioners?

They are dedicated students of Christian Science who are available to help others heal through prayer and the principles of Christian Science. You will find listings for Christian Science practitioners in California and throughout the world in The Christian Science Journal, a monthly publication. Journals are available at Christian Science Reading Rooms throughout the world, and from The First Church of Christ, Scientist website.

How do Christianity and Science Connect?

"We are in the midst of a revolution; physics are yielding slowly to metaphysics; mortal mind rebels at its own boundaries; weary of matter, it would catch the meaning of Spirit."

Christian Healing A Sermon, 1880, Mary Baker Eddy

"Jesus of Nazareth was the most scientific man that ever trod the globe. He plunged beneath the material surface of things, and found the spiritual cause."

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy

Healing in Christian Science

"Christian marvels (and marvel is the simple meaning of the Greek word rendered miracle in the New Testament) will be misunderstood and misused by many, until the glorious Principle of these marvels is gained."

Mary Baker Eddy

Mary Baker Eddy CHRISTIAN HEALER
Author: Yvonne von Fettweis and Robert Townsend Warneck

Focused on spiritual healing, this book includes all of the hundreds of Mrs. Eddy’s documented healings throughout her life, and puts the other aspects of her life and accomplishments in that context.
