Who is Mary Baker
Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) is the Revelator of
Christian Science. In her autobiography,
"Retrospection and Introspection," she recorded the
"experiences which led her, in the year 1866, to
the discovery of the system that she denominated
Christian Science" (Science and Health with Key
to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p.

What is Christian
Mary Baker Eddy writes, "Jesus demonstrated the
power of Christian Science to heal mortal minds and
bodies. But this power was lost sight of, and must
again be spiritually discerned, taught, and
demonstrated according to Christ's command, with
'signs following.' Its Science must be apprehended
by as many as believe on Christ and spiritually
understand Truth." (Science and Health p.

Is the Christian
Science Endtime Center affiliated with The First
Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston?
How did the
Christian Science Endtime Center begin?
It was founded in 1996 by Stanley C. Larkin for
the purpose of preserving Mary Baker Eddy's school
of Christian Science.
How does the CSEC

We believe Mary Baker Eddy is uniquely
associated with the prophecy of the God-crowned
woman in the twelfth chapter of the Apocalypse and
that she is the representative of the Second Coming
of Christ. (see Science and Health with Key to
the Scriptures, pp. 118:6; 565:18;
We accept Mrs.
Eddy's prediction that "Christ will give to
Christianity his new name, and Christendom will be
classified as Christian Scientists." (Pulpit and
Press, p. 22:9)
We accept Mrs.
Eddy's prophecy: "In answer to on-coming questions
will say: I calculate that about one half century
more will bring to the front the man that God has
equipped to lift aloft His standard of Christian
Science." We believe Stanley C. Larkin fulfilled
this prophecy. (see The Christian Science
Standard, Vol. 6, Number 1, pp. 17,
We accept the Bible
prophecies of a global conflagration; we also
accept Mrs. Eddy's prophecy "Material history is
drawing to a close" (No and Yes, p. 45) and
her statements in "Science and Health" on pages 96
and 97 on the endtime.
We hold the Bible
to be the divinely inspired revelation of Truth and
of God's plan of salvation for the redemption of
the human race.
We further hold our
denominational textbook, Science and Health with
Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, to be
the key to the Scriptures fulfilling the prophecy
of the "little book" in Revelation 10, and we
believe that it is equally as much revealed truth
as is the Bible.
We endeavor to
preserve and disseminate the class teaching Mrs.
Eddy gave in her College.
We use the Bible

Science because they help to reinforce Mrs. Eddy's
We believe The
First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston is
that concept of Mrs. Eddys church which must
necessarily conform to her words: Despite the
prosperity of my church, it was learned that
material organization has its value and peril, and
that organization is requisite only in the earliest
periods in Christian history. After this material
form of cohesion and fellowship has accomplished
its end, continued organization retards spiritual
growth, and should be laid off...

Why do you study
the early CS Bible Lessons?
The early CS Bible Lessons differ from those
currently published by the Christian Science
headquarters in Boston in that they present
Christian Science as Mary Baker Eddy and her early
followers presented it. They also contain citations
which are never studied in the current official
from being outdated, these Lessons are as fresh,
inspiring, and relevant as when they were
Scientists go to doctors?
Christian Scientists are free to follow the
dictates of their own conscience. If they desire to
put themselves under medical care instead of
relying on Christian Science treatment, they are
free to do so. However, most students of Christian
Science have found God to be the great Physician
and the only help they need.
precedence for relying on God for all healing is
found in the life and works of Christ Jesus. He
said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do
shall he do also; and greater works than these
shall he do; because I go unto my Father." (John
14:12) He also commanded his followers: "Heal the
sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out
devils." (Matt. 10:8)
The best source
regarding the Christian Science view of medicine is
the textbook of Christian Science, Science and

Baker Eddy. We recommend the chapter
beginning on page 107, but especially pages
