The Holy Bible

The Bible is central to the study and practice of Christian Science and its system of healing. Through the study of the Bible, Mary Baker Eddy found not only inspiration and guidance, but what she believed were the spiritual laws of health and healing that undergirded Jesus’ teachings and works.

In her seminal work Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures she writes, “The Bible has been my only authority,” and “my only textbook”, and “contains the recipe for all healing”, and describes it as “the chart of life”. The Bible and Science and Health are the textbooks for self-instruction in Christian Science, they are central to Sunday School, and a weekly Bible Lesson, made up of selections from these two books, is available for individual study.

This same weekly Bible Lesson also serves as the Sunday sermon that is read in Christian Science church services throughout the world.

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures

heal the sick...
These words of Christ Jesus encircling the Cross and Crown seal on the cover of this book are a sweet promise that we all possess the ability to heal ourselves, our families, our world.

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures explains fully and directly the spiritual teaching of the Bible, and reveals the divine Science that, when practiced, brings health and harmony to all aspects of our lives. It is available to everyone.

The last 100 pages of this book are letters from those who have experienced healing simply by reading or studying this textbook of the Science of Christianity. One reader notes that “it was the theology in Science and Health that healed me, just as it was the theology of Jesus that healed the sick.

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 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.
