Christian Science teaches that God is Love and that we are His beloved children. It is a church founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866 who explains that “The vital part, the heart and soul of Christian Science is Love.” Its teachings are based on the life and ministry of Christ Jesus.
Christ Jesus commanded his followers to “…love the Lord your God,” “Love your neighbor as yourself,” and “Heal the sick.”
The Bible and Jesus’ teachings are the heart and soul of Christian Science. The teachings of Christian Science show us that God is love (I John 4:16) and we are God’s beloved children.
Healings of significant physical and mental problems have occurred for more than a century through insights and inspiration gained from the spiritual meaning of the Bible. The Bible’s treasures are unlocked through study of our textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the discover of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy. Studying these two companion books opens ways for God’s love to work in our lives today to heal, harmonize, bless, and comfort.
The Christian Science church’s official title is the Church of Christ, Scientist and was founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866. Since its founding, branch churches have been established around the world.
