About Christian Science

Church-Exterior2A Ministry of Spiritual Healing

Jesus says in the New Testament, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do” (John 14:12  KJV). Christian Science is based on Bible truths that enable Christian healing as practiced by Christ Jesus. Christian Scientists fully accept and believe Jesus’ promise.

Christian Science explains that the healing power of prayer lies in faith and a deeper understanding of God’s divine nature that embraces humanity.  By understanding the complete goodness of God and our inseparability from that goodness, anyone can learn and apply these truths to the demands of today and find healing that includes both physical cures of disease as well as reformation and restoration of lives.

In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the textbook of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy explains how the healings in the Bible were accomplished and how we can claim that same healing experience for ourselves, our families, and our world.
