What is Christian Science?

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’d learned that God is infinite Love, and completely good. A clear glimpse of this through prayer has power to heal and transform anyone.

Since Mary Baker Eddy discovered Christian Science in 1866, many people have been healed and redeemed as they learn about their relationship to God through this reliable Science of Christianity.

The Mother Church in Boston, MA

Our Pastor

The worldwide Church of Christ, Scientist has just one universal, permanent Pastor. Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, wanted her Church’s Pastor to be as pure, constant, and powerful as God’s Word itself. To this end, in 1895 she ordained as Pastor both the Bible and her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, which opens up the Bible in its application to all human needs. Together, these two books are a mentor, spiritual resource, and timeless guide open to all—a Pastor for the world.
