Christian Science is based on Christ Jesus' words and works. The Bible is its authority and its teachings are completely stated in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

The worldwide Christian Science Church was founded by Mrs. Eddy in 1879. She was a healer, teacher, lecturer, founder and editor of several magazines and books and founder of The Christian Science Monitor.

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures is the textbook of Christian Science. As a companion to The Bible, it is a resource for understanding God.

The following are the important points or religious 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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
