                                History

The Discoverer and Founder of the Church of Christ,

Scientist, Mary Baker Eddy established these centers where anyone could come in to learn about God. A God who is Love. A God that heals, protects, saves, forgives.  When    healed from fatal injuries after a fall, this prompted Mrs. Eddy to search the Bible to learn the "why", of her healing and "how" it came about. A solid three year study  of the Bible led Mrs. Eddy to understand a God who loves his creation, and who does not send sin, disease, nor death. In the KJV Bible John:14:12 Jesus states - "Verily,verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father."   Come in and discover the "greater works". Healing is possible today! Anyone can learn to heal the way Jesus did. So can you...

    The Tenets of Christian Science

1. As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life.          

2. We acknowledge and adore one supreme and infinite God. We acknowledge His Son, one Christ; the Holy Ghost or divine Comforter; and man in God's image and likeness.

3. We acknowledge Jesus' God's forgiveness of sin in the destruction of sin and the spiritual understanding that casts out evil as unreal. But the belief in sin is punished so long as the belief lasts.

4. We acknowledge Jesus' atonement as the evidence of divine, efficacious Love, unfolding man's unity with God through Christ Jesus the Way-shower; and we acknowledge that man is saved through Christ, through Truth, Life, and Love as demonstrated by the Galilean Prophet in healing the sick and overcoming sin and death.

5. We acknowledge that the crucifixion of Jesus and his resurrection served to uplift faith to understand eternal Life, even the allness of Soul, Spirit, and the nothingness of matter.

6. And we solemnly promise to watch, and pray for that Mind to be in us which was also in Christ Jesus; to do unto others as we would have them do unto us; and to be merciful, just, and pure. 

 The Tenets can be found on page 497 of  the  Christian Science textbook - Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy
