The heart of Christian Science is Love. It’s about the understanding and practical demonstration of God’s goodness and constant care. Christian Science is based on spiritual truths found in the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Everyone can find God to be “a very present help in trouble” (Ps. 46:1).

Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, loved and studied the Bible throughout her life. When she seemed to be in delicate health, Eddy experimented with multiple healthcare systems in attempt to find permanent healing. A turning point occurred, in 1866, when she experienced the effects of a severe fall. After three days of no improvement in her health, she asked for her Bible and immediately became completely well after reading one of Jesus’ healings. Eddy began to understand the science of her healing work, and continued to prove that divine laws of God not only heal but are also applicable to every facet of her life. Later, Eddy was led to fully explain her method of spiritual healing by writing a textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and named her discovery Christian Science. While an active public speaker, teacher, and best-selling author, she established a church that expanded to include worldwide branches. She also established multiple publications, including and an award-winning international newspaper – The Christian Science Monitor.
