ABOUT CHRISTIAN SCIENCE
The Church of Christ, Scientist
The Church of Christ, Scientist is the official name of the Christian Science Church. It was founded by the Reverend Mary Baker Eddy in 1879 "to commemorate the word and works of our Master [Christ Jesus], which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing." The First Church of Christ, Scientist — also known as The Mother Church — is located in Boston, Massachusetts, and has congregations around the world.
Teachings of Christian Science
The teachings of Christian Science are based on the BIBLE, with primary emphasis on Jesus' life and healing ministry. SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, written by Mary Baker Eddy and first published in 1875, is the denominational textbook containing the complete statement of Christian Science theology and practice.
Local churches maintain public Reading Rooms for anyone seeking spiritual solutions to life's many questions. They also sponsor lectures and public talks on Christian Science that are open to the community. Of particular note is The Christian Science Monitor, an international news organization that has earned numerous journalism awards, including seven Pulitzer Prizes. Its mission: "To injure no man, but to bless all mankind."
