What is Christian Science?

This is the first of a number of questions and answers on Christian Science that originally appeared on the website “First Lessons in Christian Science.”


Christian Science is a system of spiritual healing. It is a religion and a science.
In a higher sense, it is the term for the divine laws of God that govern His universe.
These laws were discovered by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866. She spent the rest of her
life bringing this discovery to the attention of the world and helping others to understand how to demonstrate these laws in healing sin and sickness. The complete explanation of Christian Science is found in Mary Baker Eddy’s primary work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, originally published in 1875.
