This is a lay church in
which every member has equal standing with God. With The Bible and Science and Health, with Key to the
Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, as our pastor, Christian Scientists turn
to prayer and these two books for counsel and healing.
Christian Science was discovered by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866. She was severely injured in a fall, and turned to the Bible as
she had been accustomed to doing. All she had pondered
the past came strongly and clearly to her as she read an account of one of Jesus' healings. She was immediately healed.
Convinced that God had healed her, she spent the next
several years searching the Scriptures to understand the principle behind her healing. She named her discovery Christian
Science and explained it in 1875 when she first wrote Science and Health. On page 583, Science
and Health includes the following definition of
"The structure of Truth and Love;
what-ever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle.
"The Church is that institution, which affords
proof of its utility and is found elevating the race, rousing the
dormant understanding from material beliefs to the apprehension of
spiritual ideas and the demonstration of divine
Science, thereby casting out devils, or error, and healing the sick."
