What is Christian Science?
First Church of Christ, Scientist, 201 Ravenswood Avenue, Menlo Park, CA 94025
The Church of Christ, Scientist is designed to commemorate the words and works of Christ Jesus. Christian Science teaches that God is Love and that we are His beloved children. Understanding God's nature and His power leads to healing in individual lives, as well as in the community and the world.
You are welcome to join our services. Children and those up to age 20 are welcome to attend Sunday School.
Our Sunday service is at 10:00 AM. This service provides an atmosphere for prayer and for listening to a Bible Lesson-Sermon that promotes healing. The Lesson-Sermon is composed of citations from The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Every service includes hymn singing by the congregation and an inspirational solo.

Thanks for asking!
Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, defined it as “the law of God, the law of good . . . ” (Rudimental Divine Science, p. 1). 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.
A lifelong student of the Bible, who yearned from her youth to find deeper answers to the persistent question of human suffering, Mary Baker Eddy turned wholeheartedly to God when she experienced a critical injury in 1866. As she read accounts of Jesus’ swift, powerful healings, a new sense of God, Spirit, as the only reality flooded her thought and healed her. Impelled to understand the Principle behind this experience, she continued to search for and find in the Bible the underlying laws of God that would form the basis of her teaching and practice of Christian Science.
From her time to ours, many have found that when they understand their relationship to God better through this Science of Christianity, their health is restored and character transformed. And each healing inspires a heartfelt desire to help others know and experience how loved we all are by God.
