What is Christian Science?

Christian Science is a Bible based religion, discovered in 1866, and founded in 1879 by Mary Baker Eddy, that promotes healing of sickness and sin through prayer, as found in Christ Jesus’ ministry. To learn more about our beliefs and teachings check out our tenets.

Christian? Science?

Yes, both. Christian because it is based on the Bible, and specifically on the teachings of Christ Jesus. Science because it is based on the laws of God, which are provable and constant, as demonstrated by Christ Jesus.

Who are your pastors?

Every Christian Science church shares the same two pastors. They are the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Lesson sermons are prepared by a committee from The Mother Church and distributed through the Christian Science Publishing Society. These sermons are presented on Sundays by elected individuals within the different churches called readers. The First Reader reads from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. The Second Reader reads from the Bible.

What can I expect from church services?

On Sundays, Christian Science churches around the world deliver the same lesson sermon which can be studied beforehand through The Christian Science Quarterly or the Full Text Lesson Sermon. The differences between these services are the selected: hymns, solo music, opening scriptural reading, and benediction.

On Wednesdays, the elected First Reader from each branch church prepares a service using citations from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. The sermon is followed by testimonies from congregants sharing how the study of Christian Science has enlightened their understanding of God, and may include references to healings.

FROM THIS WEEK’S CHRISTIAN SCIENCE QUARTERLY BIBLE LESSON:

Subject: Probation After Death

. . . Before he was taken up, working in the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus instructed the apostles he had chosen. . . . He appeared to them over a period of forty days, speaking to them about God’s kingdom.

Responsive Reading |  Acts 10:34–36 God, 39–42; I John 4:9

34  . . . God doesn’t show partiality to one group of people over another.
35  Rather, in every nation, whoever worships him and does what is right is
acceptable to him.
36  This is the message of peace he sent to the Israelites by proclaiming the good
news through Jesus Christ: He is Lord of all!
39  We are witnesses of everything he did, both in Judea and in Jerusalem. They
killed him by hanging him on a tree,
40  but God raised him up on the third day and allowed him to be seen,
41   not by everyone but by us. We are witnesses whom God chose beforehand,
who ate and drank with him after God raised him from the dead.
42  He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one
whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead.
9   This is how the love of God is revealed to us: God has sent his only Son
into the world so that we can live through him.
                             The Golden Text and Responsive Reading are from the Common
                                                                                          English Bible.
