Christian Science at a Glance

Christian Science, discovered by Mary Baker Eddy, refers to the universal, practical system of spiritual, prayer-based healing, available and accessible to everyone.

It is a system of care based on Christ Jesus' teaching, through which individuals have found better emotional and physical health, answers to life's deepest issues and progress on their spiritual journeys.

Our Master taught no mere theory, doctrine, or belief.
It was the divine Principle of all real being which he taught and practiced.
His proof of Christianity was no form or system of religion and worship,
but Christian Science, working out the harmony of Life and Love.

pg. 26 Science and Health with Key to The Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy

Christian Science is fully explained in Mrs. Eddy's primary text on spirituality and healing, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.

Basic ideas include:

  • God is divine Love, Father-Mother, supreme.
  • The true nature of each individual, as a child of God, is spiritual.
  • God's infinite goodness, realized in prayer and action, heals.
