About Us

Mary Baker Eddy discovered Christian Science in 1866
and founded The Church of Christ, Scientist in 1879 to
"commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing"
(Church Manual p.17:10-13).

Christian Science is based on the teachings of the Bible,
and is fully explained in Mary Baker Eddy's book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, first published in 1875.
Its system of healing has a practical application to
individual challenges and daily events.
