First Church of Christ, Scientist

Date created/published: ca. 1909

The Church of Christ, Scientist was founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1879 following a personal healing, which she claimed resulted from reading the Holy Bible.

Mary Baker Eddy was the author of the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Christian Science teaches that the “allness” of God denies the reality of sickness, death, sin and the material world. Accounts of healing through prayer are common within the church and adherents traditionally refuse medical treatment.
