Christian Science is the theology of Christ Jesus

From the April 1983 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Mrs. Eddy founded and designed the Church of Christ, Scientist, "to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing." Mary Baker Eddy, Manual of The Mother Church, p. 17.

Members of this Church know that their own individual works of healing and regeneration are based squarely on the example and the theology of Christ Jesus. And his works, even more than his words, illustrate divine theology. Jesus' demonstration of divine sonship left the whole world with an enduring example of unselfed love and compassion that has tremendous saving and healing power today.

In fact, the healing and regeneration taking place through Christian Science are signs that the same theology illustrated in the life of Jesus is potent in all ages and valid for all individuals. Christian Science gives the same concept of perfect God and perfect man that Jesus demonstrated. See Matt. 5:48 . When we reason from the basis of the revelation of Christian Science, we are reasoning from a spiritual and Christianly accurate standpoint.
