Christian Science is a worldwide Bible-based religion started in Lynn, Massachusetts by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866. Our congregation has healed, loved, and learned about Christian Science in Lynn since 1897.
Christian Science in Lynn
Lynn, Massachusetts, the “City of Firsts,” was the birthplace of Christian Science.
The beginnings of the Christian Science church in Lynn are linked with its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy. She lived in Lynn from 1864 to 1866, briefly in 1868 and then from 1870 to 1882.
It was in this city that the first demonstrations of Christian Science healing were made by Mrs. Eddy. Here she taught her first students from the Bible and wrote, “The Bible contains the recipe for all healing.”

What We Believe
One way we describe God is “the great I AM; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-wise, all-loving, and eternal; Principle, Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, pg. 587.) Christ Jesus is our Master Teacher and Way-Shower. We are committed to commemorating his word and works in our thoughts and actions, including healing through prayer.
