What does The Mother Church mean to its members?

From the July 1995 issue of The Christian Science Journal

What makes a student of Christian Science decide to become a member of The Mother Church? In my case it was the example of fellow students in the Christian Science organization at the university I was attending. Reports of healing, of solving problems through prayer, of inspiration received, were so encouraging that I began to understand that I could practice Christian Science myself, instead of relying mainly on my dad to pray for me as I had done before.
