CHURCH. The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle.

The Church is that institution, which affords proof of its utility and is found elevating the race, rousing the dormant understanding from material beliefs to the apprehension of spiritual ideas and the demonstration of divine Science, thereby casting out devils, or error, and healing the sick.

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 583)

Church in Action

From the February 1980 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Vandalism, the community, and the spiritual power of Church Since a Christian Science branch church expresses the thought of its members, each individual must be on guard that no intrusion of his own thought take place. By affirming man's unity with God, with divine Principle, members are able to spiritually defend themselves and exercise alertness in every church activity.
