From the August 1939 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Why do Christian Scientists organize churches and engage in varied church activities? What is the purpose of The Mother Church and its branches? Is not that purpose to separate men gently and effectively from the world, and to lead them into unity with God? One qualification for membership is that the applicant should believe in the doctrines of Christian Science. To believe in the doctrines of Christian Science, we must believe in God and the supremacy of His transcendent power.
