Church Services

Our Pastor

Instead, two readers elected from the congregation read passages from the Bible and the Christian Science Textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

 

Sunday Services

Exterior photo of church.Our Sunday morning services include hymns, Scriptural readings, prayer, and readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. These readings are based on weekly Bible lessons, which are outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly. This provides an opportunity for all to study these inspiring lessons individually prior to the service. This same message is shared in Christian Science churches throughout the world.

Wednesday Evening Meeting

The Wednesday Testimony Meeting offers mid-week inspiration. The reader presents readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures on a current topic of interest. The congregation is then invited to share remarks and testimonies of healing resulting from the study and practice of Christian Science and to express gratitude for blessings received.

The following are the important points or religious tenets of Christian Science:

From Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, page 497.

  1. As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
