Spiritual healing. What is it? Who is it for?

Christian Science is both a religious teaching and a Bible-based system of spiritual healing. The Bible — especially the teachings and healings of Christ Jesus — form the basis of Christian Science and its system of spiritual healing. Christian Science is available to all. More about Christian Science. Students of Christian Science regard it as a way of life — as the promised "Comforter"of the ages. It is in the spirit of love that they bring this web site to the community along with the special joy and regeneration they have found in the study of this enlightening system of Christian healing. All are welcome to attend Sunday services, Sunday School (up to the age of 20), Wednesday evening testimony meetings, and to visit our Reading Room located in the church building.

"Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need."
