You might have heard that it’s a way of fixing something that’s wrong, or merely an alternative method of health care. These answers have some truth in them, but there is more to Christian Science healing. When we understand what Christian Science really is, healing follows naturally and inevitably. Healing is the natural effect of letting our own thoughts go deep into the infinite. The spiritual reality of God’s creating can be experienced in all its harmony right where we are and we find ourselves and our world held securely in that loving embrace.
The Bible gives us a standard of healing resting on timeless and universal spiritual laws. Mary Baker Eddy’s work Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures shows how the healings in the Bible were accomplished, and how we can claim that same healing for ourselves, our families, and our world. These experiences are “not supernatural but supremely natural,” (Science and Health, p. xi) as Christian Science explains. Anyone can learn and apply these spiritually scientific ideas to the contemporary demands we face and find resolution to problems that proves God’s goodness.

In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures Mary Baker Eddy states that Jesus “maintained his mission on a spiritual foundation of Christ-healing” (p. 136). The practice of this system of Christian healing has resulted in significant cures of physical and mental problems for over a century.
