Bibles in Calgary

The Bible is the foundation for the theology and practice of Christian Science. Jesus' ministry especially shows how we can experience healing and regeneration as we learn that our true identity is completely spiritual. The first chapter of Genesis states clearly that we are made in the image and likeness of God. The lives of Abraham, Jacob, Moses, and the prophets, as well as those of Jesus and his followers, are rich examples of God’s power to reform and heal.

For Mary Baker Eddy, Christian Science flowed out of an inspired understanding of the Bible. Through prayer and biblical study, she learned about the divine laws behind spiritual healing. These laws of God are powerful, always in operation to heal, redeem, and bless humanity. The title of her primary work, Science and Health, includes the phrase "Key to the Scriptures." This indicates its inseparable connection with the Bible. When describing her discovery of Christian Science, she wrote, "The Bible has been my only authority," and, "The Bible contains the recipe for all healing" (Science and Health, pp. 126, 406). Of the six brief tenets of Christian Science, the first is: "As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life" (Science and Health, p. 497).
