What is Christian Science?

kjv sterling hc

Christian Science is based on the Bible. It was discovered and founded by Mary Baker Eddy, to reinstate Christian healing as practised by Jesus Christ. After studying the Bible, she was healed of a life-threatening injury and this gave her new insight into Jesus Christ and his own healing works recorded in the Bible. 

In 1875, she published her seminal work Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, which has sold over 10 million copies worldwide and explains the Science of healing as proved by Jesus.  Over the years since its discovery, Christian Science has been practised by many individuals all over the world, including here in Bedford and there are thousands of authenticated testimonies of healings. 

SandHChristian Scientists understand that as each individual grows closer to God, they gain a fresh perspective on God as Love, which has healing results.
