Healing in Christian Science
The members of our church, and all Christian Science churches, are dedicated to spiritual healing through reliance on God as the source of man’s health and well being. The establishment of this denomination is based on these words from our Church Manual “… a church designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing.” (Church Manual of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass. by Mary Baker Eddy, pg.17)
At each church service there is an expectation of healing for those seeking a way of recovery through spiritualized prayer. Prayer, as explained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, is effective in establishing good health, for resolving every type of human challenge, and for individual growth in a clearer understanding of God as the creator and sustainer of man and the universe.
There are many avenues through which you can discover this healing power:
Written testimonies of healing can be found in Christian Science periodicals such as the Christian Science Sentinel and The Christian Science Journal, as well as the chapter entitled Fruitage in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
Attending Church services, especially Wednesday Testimony Meetings, you will hear accounts of healings from the Bible and personal experiences that are shared by the congregation.
Christian Science Practitioners are individuals that dedicate their lives to the full-time practice of spiritual healing through prayer. To contact a Christian Science Practitioner, you will find them listed in the back of The Christian Science Journal periodical or on The Christian Science Journal Directory website at christianscience.com.
Public Christian Science lectures, given annually, are sponsored by branch churches and address today’s key issues on health, economics, and relationship concerns. These free lectures help us to see how important issues can be resolved through spiritualized prayer. You can find out where a lecture is being given by contacting the Clerk of the Church or the Reading Room, or go to Upcoming Events.
