How is it Christian and Science?

Christian Science and its healing ministry rests entirely on the affirmation from the Bible that “God is love” (I John 4:16). Those who practice it strive to live the bold, compassionate, pure, generous love that Christ Jesus embodied and taught in his Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5–7). This is the heart of its Christianity.

Christian Science is also a science because God is understood to be unchanging Love—the infinite Principle that is constant, universal, inclusive, eternal, the only true power and source of all good. It explains the spiritual laws of Love that enabled Jesus to heal sickness and sin. This divine Science also answers our fundamental questions about evil, reality, and eternal life. And as the word science implies, it is reliable, consistent, and provable, bringing healing to individuals and humanity through a deeper understanding of God.
