What is Christian Science?

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, defined it as “the law of God, the law of good” (Rudimental Divine Science, p. 1). 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.

Christian Science is rooted in the Scriptures, and particularly the teachings of Christ Jesus—showing us how to take the inspired and spiritual Word of the Bible as a guide for life today.
