The heart of Christian Science is Love. The practice of Christian Science is based on the teachings of the Bible and is expanded upon in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Students of Christian Science, study the Bible in depth on a weekly basis. Each weekly bible lesson brings dimension to our understanding of the teachings of the Bible. These teachings bring practical healing results demonstrating the effectiveness of prayer. Jesus inspires us to rise up and follow him-in Christian Science, this is more than worship; it's about the practicality of learning to love God supremely and to love others as ourselves.
Depth - Bible Study
As a child, Mary Baker Eddy took to the Bible instinctively and as an adult studied it intensively. Through this study she discovered the healing power of God and experienced it firsthand. This inspired her to delve even more deeply into the Scriptures, finding their spiritual meaning, which ultimately led to her writing the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
The Bible and Science and Health are the pastor of the Christian Science Church. Christian Scientists follow Mrs. Eddy's powerful example of scriptural study, searching the Bible for the spiritual truths and applying the laws of God in their daily lives in practical ways. Students of Christian Science around the world study the weekly Bible lesson, which prepares them for the church service, on the same weekly topic in churches worldwide.
Dimension – Global Reach
The weekly Bible Lesson published in the Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lesson is studied around the globe. Each week, correlated passages from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, are thoughtfully organized to illustrate the principles and practical ideas contained in the Bible. Students of Christian Science pray with these inspiring ideas to address everyday issues, from sickness and injury, to financial problems, unhappy relationships and more. These practical truths can also be applied to confront global issues such as crime, environmental issues, violence and civil unrest through prayer.
The Christian Science Monitor founded by Mary Baker Eddy is an international news organization that delivers thoughtful, timely, global coverage via its website, weekly magazine, daily news briefing, email newsletters, and mobile site.
The Monitor is global, both in practice and in spirit.
In an era when the mainstream media has narrowed its lens, we're convinced readers yearn for the opposite. This global perspective comes naturally; the Monitor's founder, Mary Baker Eddy, explained our mission this way: "To injure no man, but to bless all mankind."
Demonstration - Healing Through Prayer
Christian Science changes lives for the better. It improves health and can result in physical healing. Over almost 140 years, more than 80,000 healings have been verified and published by the Christian Science Sentinel and the Herald of Christian Science. Their inspiring stories tell of lives lived fearlessly, healthfully and abundantly through prayer and study of Christian Science.
The lesson also is a prominent fixture in Christian Science Sunday Schools, where children and youth learn how to apply spiritual laws in their own lives to help not only themselves but everyone around them.
The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy contain the basic teachings of Christian Science. These books are available to read online.
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
