Christian Science: First Church of Christ Sci.

The Reading Room is located at 23 Church Street.

In the late 1800s, after a deep study of the Bible, Mary Baker Eddy discovered a system of spiritual healing that she named Christian Science. She called it "Christian" because it is compassionate and based on the teachings of Christ Jesus and "Science" because it operates according to unvarying laws‚ spiritual laws of health and harmony that can be proved time and again. Her book, "Science and Health," fully explains these teachings. Since the 1870s, thousands of people have found regeneration and physical healing by studying the Bible, science and health.
