Mary Baker Eddy

Mary Baker Eddy (1821–1910), the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, studied the Bible her whole life. Following a serious injury in 1866 that could not be remedied by conventional medicine, she underwent a spectacular recovery just by reading the passages in the Bible about Jesus’ healings. This led her to study the Scriptures in more depth, whereupon she discovered that spiritual healing was based on God’s divine laws and could be applied by anyone. These laws underpin Christian Science.


Since then, many people have been healed and redeemed by learning to understand their relationship with God, thanks to this Science of Christianity. A great many of these healings are documented in the online archives. Click here to read or listen to genuine testimonies.

Mary Baker Eddy then published Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, her reference work on spiritual healing (1875), founded the Church of Christ, Scientist (1894), then published an international journal, the Christian Science Monitor (1908).

The Church of Christian Science in Geneva was established in 1903.

Mary Baker Eddy was a true spiritual pioneer. Having discovered Christian Science, she devoted her life to practising, teaching and sharing these spiritual laws.
