What do we believe

Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, defined Christian Science as “the law of God, the law of good . . . ” (Rudimental Divine Science, p. 1). She learned that God is infinite Love and completely good from her study of the Bible.  This divine Love has the power to heal and transform our lives.

The Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is the foundation for the theology and practice of Christian Science. For Mary Baker Eddy, Christian Science flowed out of an inspired understanding of the Bible, which illumined the divine laws behind spiritual healing.

“God is Love.” More than this we cannot ask, higher we cannot look, farther we cannot go.
