Church of Christ Scientist, Bo City

Organization Description: 

The heart of Christian Science is Love. It's about feeling and understanding God's goodness. It's based on the Bible and is explained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and other writings by Mary Baker Eddy. It shows the practicality of better understanding God, Christ Jesus, goodness, life, sacrament, salvation, and more. Anyone can find God to be "a very present help in trouble" (Ps. 46:1). Christian Science is based on the teachings of Christ Jesus, who said, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also... (John 14:12). Mary Baker Eddy said, these mighty works are not supernatural, but supremely natural... (Science and Health, p.xi:14). This can mean resolving difficult challenges with health, relationships, employment, and other personal and global issues through prayer. People who practice Christian Science are free to make their own choices about what to think and do in each situation, including health care. Christian Science is a way to draw closer to our loving Father-Mother, God, as well as all of humanity.

Mission Statement: 

Healing has always beenand continues to bethe foundation of the Church of Christ, Scientist and its worldwide mission.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life.

We acknowledge and adore one supreme and infinite God. We acknowledge His Son, one Christ; the Holy Ghost or divine Comforter; and man in Gods image and likeness

We acknowledge Gods forgiveness of sin in the destruction of sin and the spiritual understanding that casts out evil as unreal. But the belief in sin is punished so long as the belief lasts

We acknowledge Jesus atonement as the evidence of divine, efficacious Love, unfolding mans unity with God through Christ Jesus the Way-shower; 16and we acknowledge that man is saved through Christ, through Truth, Life, and Love as demonstrated by the Galilean Prophet in healing the sick and overcoming sin and death.

We acknowledge that the crucifixion of Jesus and his resurrection served to uplift faith to understand eternal Life, even the allness of Soul, Spirit, and the nothingness of matter.

And we solemnly promise to watch, and pray for that Mind to be in us which was also in Christ Jesus; to do unto others as we would have them do unto us; and to be merciful, just, and pure.
