“Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free” — Christ Jesus

What is Christian Science?
Christian Science is based on the eternal truths of the Bible and follows the teachings of Christ Jesus. Mary Baker Eddy described these truths in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Christian Science explains the Science or spiritual laws that enabled Jesus to heal, making healing available to all. It answers questions about evil, and about spiritual reality. Anyone seeking healing from any discordant situation or condition will find prayerful support and healing inspiration amongst Christian Scientists.

Christian Science is not related in any way to Scientology; nor is it a cult religion. Christian Scientists are free to visit doctors if they wish – although the norm is total reliance on prayer in this Christian system of healing.

Mary Baker Eddy
Mary Baker Eddy was truly a remarkable woman. In an age where a woman’s place was considered to be at home, at a time when they could not vote, let alone become an ordained minister, Eddy challenged convention. Not only did she take a firm lead at an early age, questioning the prevailing Calvinist thought, she ultimately established and led her own church, became a best-selling author of a ground-breaking book, and founded an international newspaper at the age of 88.

Married, widowed and a mother by the age of 22, her early life was beset by tragedy and ill-health. Her efforts to find good health led her to investigate all the conventional, and some unconventional, means of healing available at that time, but without any lasting success.

A pivotal moment occurred in 1866 when Eddy sustained a serious injury falling on an icy pavement, viewed by the doctors who attended her as almost certainly fatal. In her extremity she asked for her Bible. The insight she gained reading an account of one of Jesus’ healings resulted in an instantaneous recovery. This spiritual inspiration transformed her life and convinced her that there was an eternal principle behind Jesus’ life work, that when glimpsed would result in healing in any age. The ultimate outcome of this event led Eddy to write ‘Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures’ which was published in 1875.

Today she continues to receive accolades and in 1998 was voted one of the most important religious leaders of the 20th century.
