Welcome to First Church of Christ Scientist, Oakland! We are a church that believes that God is Love and entirely good. We are a Christian Bible-based church grounded on the teachings of Christ Jesus and on the teachings of Christian Science as can be found in our textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy. Everyone in search of peace, healing and spiritual progress through prayer and communion with God is welcome.
Our church is a supportive, multi-cultural, family atmosphere, and we warmly invite you to join us for all of our church services on Sundays and Wednesdays and visit our Reading Room for prayer, study and spiritual inspiration.
The heart of Christian Science is Love. Visit our church and you will find people who pray for healing of home, heart, congregation, community, and the world. We rely on God for all aspects of our lives because spiritually based prayer to God works!
Coming soon — we are opening a new Reading Room in downtown Oakland.
