Panel 1


Christian Science nurses are available to foster a healing atmosphere and provide skilled physical assistance to anyone relying on Christian Science for healing. They are an active support for spiritual healing, and are not medical nurses. They are students of the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Our practice is grounded firmly in the theology of Christian Science.

Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, defined Christian Science as “the law of God, the law of good…” (Rudimental Divine Science p.1). She had learned that God is infinite Love, and completely good. A clear glimpse of this, through prayer, has power to heal and transform anyone.

Mary Baker Eddy was a lifelong student of the Bible and was always seeking solutions to human suffering. In 1866, Mrs. Eddy was healed of a critical injury by reading one of the accounts of Christ Jesus’ swift and powerful healings. She wanted to understand what had happened and devoted the next three years to studying the Bible. During this time, Mrs. Eddy discovered universal and dependable laws of God and Spirit, which are always in operation and which can be understood and applied. These laws are the foundation of the Christian Science nursing practice and Christian Science healing.

The Bible and the Christian Science textbook Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures are our only preachers.
