What is Christian Science?

Thanks for asking!

The heart of Christian Science is Love. It’s about feeling and understanding God’s goodness. It’s based on the Bible and is explained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and other writings by Mary Baker Eddy. It shows the practicality of better understanding God, Christ Jesus, goodness, life, sacrament, salvation, and more. Anyone can find God to be “a very present help in trouble” (Ps. 46:1).

Supporting Palm Springs

Our church has been a part of the Palm Spring community since March 1945, when a group of residents were recognized as a Christian Science society by The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.  In October 1950 we became the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Palm Springs. 

The present church site at 605 South Riverside Drive was designed by the well known modern architect Albert Frey. The property was purchased in 1951 and construction on a new church building began in October 1956. The first church service was held on March 17, 1957. Dedication services for our church were held in December 1966 leaving our edifice free of debt.
