About Christian Science


Christian Science, discovered by Mary Baker Eddy, refers to the universal, practical system of spiritual, prayer-based healing, available and accessible to everyone.

It is a system of care based on Christ Jesus' teaching, through which individuals have found better emotional and physical health, answers to life's deepest issues and progress on their spiritual journeys.

"Our Master taught no mere theory, doctrine, or belief. It was the divine Principle of all real being which he taught and practised. His proof of Christianity was no form or system of religion and worship, but Christian Science, working out the harmony of Life and Love."
