What is Christian Science?

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.


Love lived — the brethren healed.


The mission of Canterbury Crest is to support healing through the ministry of Christian Science nursing.

What is Christian Science Nursing?

Christian Science nursing is a practical, spiritual ministry that actively supports an individual’s decision to rely on Christian Science for healing. Established in The Manual of The Mother Church, (Article VIII; Section 31), this caring activity is grounded in the Bible-based teachings of Christian Science, impelled by Christ Jesus’ commandment to "love one another" (John 15:12).
