Christian Science is Christian. It's based on the teachings of Christ Jesus, who said, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also...” (John 14:12). Mary Baker Eddy (the discoverer and founder of Christian Science) said, “these mighty works are not supernatural, but supremely natural...” (Science and Health, p.xi:14). This can mean resolving difficult challenges with health, relationships, employment, and other personal and global issues through prayer. People who practice Christian Science are free to make their own choices about what to think and do in each situation, including health care. But Christian Science is so much more than a system of self-help or health care. Ultimately, it is a way to draw closer to our loving Father-Mother, God, as well as all of humanity.
The full explanation of Christian Science is contained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mrs. Eddy. Written as the result of Scriptural study, revelation, and actual experience in spiritual healing, the book seeks to change the reader’s perception from a material to a spiritual foundation, and this change in perception results in healing.
Christian Science has helped many people find better emotional and physical health, answers to life’s deepest issues and progress on their spiritual journeys. MORE
