What are its Basic Teachings?

Christian Science is based on the Bible, and is fully explained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science. She discovered that Jesus’ promise “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also” (John 14:12) was not “supernatural, but supremely natural” (Science and Health, p.xi). This can mean resolving difficult challenges of health, relationships, employment, and other personal and global issues through prayer. But Christian Science is so much more than a system of self-help or health care. Ultimately, it is a way to draw closer to our loving Father-Mother, God, as well as all of humanity

"So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid."
– John 6: 19, 20

"Jesus walked on the waves, fed the multitude, healed the sick, and raised the dead in direct opposition to material laws. His acts were the demonstration of Science, overcoming the false claims of material sense or law."
