What is Christian Science?
Christian Science is more than theory — it's a practice that can deepen your relationship with God and change life for the better. In Christian Science, God is understood to be infinite Love, and so invariably good that a clear glimpse of this through prayer has power to heal, redeem, and restore anyone.

Is Christian Science the same as Scientology? The similarities in name can cause some confusion, but the two are, in fact, entirely different religions with very little in common and are not connected in any way. Learn more
The Bible from Genesis to Revelation, is the foundation for the theology and practice of Christian Science and the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy. For Mary Baker Eddy, Christian Science flowed out of an inspired understanding of the Bible, which illumined the divine laws behind spiritual healing. Christian Scientists study the Bible daily and work to apply the lessons learned from Scripture in their daily lives. The King James Version is the most widely used translation and is quoted more than 800 times in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures
Science and Health
In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy explains the scientific laws behind the teachings and spiritual healings of Christ Jesus. From the first chapter, "Prayer," to her exegesis of Genesis and Revelation, to a Glossary of terms, the author invites readers to deeply consider the allness of God, the perfection of man as God's spiritual creation, and how an understanding of these facts brings healing — just as they did in Biblical times.

Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) was a lifelong student of the Bible. It became clear to her that spiritual healing was based on divine laws of God, Spirit, and that these laws could be applied by anyone to heal human suffering and sin. Her primary work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, contains the full explanation of Christian Science and its biblical foundation of spiritual healing. Mary Baker Eddy went on to establish the Church of Christ, Scientist, as a Christian denomination and worldwide movement of spiritual healers.
Christian Science practitioners pray for healing for those who call upon them for help. These experienced men and women are available to help anyone anytime, anywhere. They are also happy, simply to answer questions about the practical blessings that come through the study of Christian Science.
For He shall give His angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways.
Psalm 91: 11
