What is Christian Science?

The simple answer is that Christian Science is Bible-based system of spiritual healing which is fully explained in Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.

Students of Christian Science follow the example of Christ Jesus in every aspect of daily living. Physical healing, while important, is an outgrowth of spiritual progress. Members are always free to choose any form of healing they prefer, but generally turn to prayer because they find it to be the most effective method of treatment.

The First Church of Christ, Scientist is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, with branch churches around the world. (The churches in the Indiana area, located in both small towns and large metropolitan areas, are listed in our local directory. A worldwide listing of Christian Science Churches is available in the Christian Science Journal.)

Christian Scientists come from all walks of life and are happy to talk about their faith when asked, but we don’t proselytize. For us, a life well lived is the best example of our beliefs.
