What is Christian Science?

Christian Science is more than theory — it's a practice that can deepen your relationship with God and change life for the better. In Christian Science, God is understood to be infinite Love, and so invariably good that a clear glimpse of this through prayer has power to heal, redeem, and restore anyone. Learn more — What is Christian Science?

Can Christianity be scientific? Science is all about understanding and demonstration. Christianity is of the heart. Can these two views be in harmony with each other? We invite you to read a few articles that show how naturally Christianity and Science go together and the blessings that this connection can bring. Click here to read the articles.

Is Christian Science the same as Scientology? The similarities in name can cause some confusion, but the two are, in fact, entirely different religions with very little in common and are not connected in any way. Learn more

Bible and spiritual healing, Calgary

The Bible

The Bible from Genesis to Revelation, is the foundation for the theology and practice of Christian Science and the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy. For Mary Baker Eddy, Christian Science flowed out of an inspired understanding of the Bible, which illumined the divine laws behind spiritual healing. Christian Scientists study the Bible daily and work to apply the lessons learned from Scripture in their daily lives. The King James Version is the most widely used translation and is quoted more than 800 times in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures

Bible and spiritual healing, Calgary

Science and Health

In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy explains the scientific laws behind the teachings and spiritual healings of Christ Jesus. From the first chapter, "Prayer," to her exegesis of Genesis and Revelation, to a Glossary of terms, the author invites readers to deeply consider the allness of God, the perfection of man as God's spiritual creation, and how an understanding of these facts brings healing — just as they did in Biblical times.

Demystifying Spiritual Healing - by Beth Packer

This is a lecture full of heart and practical application. Through analogies and healing examples, in "Demystifying Spiritual Healing" we discover where genuine security in our lives really comes from. The knowledge that there is a divine Principle underlying our lives that, when relied on, consistently brings peace and goodness to our lives, has been known and proved for centuries. We see that, by looking to God, Spirit, instead of materiality, the people in the Bible found reliable peace, healing and solutions to their everyday needs. And the discovery of the Science of Christ, by Mary Baker Eddy, shows how we too can experience this same peace, security and healing, in our lives. It brings us to the realization that we can no more run out of the good that we need than we can run out of God's love for us.

The new normal? How about the true normal?

Maybe "normal" is not the right goal!
When the pandemic slowed down, many yearned for things to return to normal. Tony talks about the chance we have to live in a better world — one full of unity, that sheds old, unkind ways of living.

Good is natural
Do we think that problems are natural? Cindy thinks through how good is natural while camping — and then immediately sees this proved in a surprising way.

Inspiration during isolation
"Many people are talking about the 'new normal,' but what is God's normal?" During lockdown Jennifer felt discouraged and just wanted things to go "back to normal." Then she realized she didn't want to go back at all, but forward, with a present sense of God's goodness and ...

Loving our way to normalcy
After World War II many people wanted a return to normalcy. This article, from the 1940s, shares a still-fresh spiritual outlook on what is truly normal.
"... seek not the return of the doubtful 'good old days,' but rather pray for the dawn of a new and happier day for the sons of men."

Mary Baker Eddy

Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) was a lifelong student of the Bible. It became clear to her that spiritual healing was based on divine laws of God, Spirit, and that these laws could be applied by anyone to heal human suffering and sin. Her primary work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, contains the full explanation of Christian Science and its biblical foundation of spiritual healing. Mary Baker Eddy went on to establish the Church of Christ, Scientist, as a Christian denomination and worldwide movement of spiritual healers.
