This Christian Science church in Jamestown, New York is in the United States, and it is a branch of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Christian Science teachings are based on the Bible and the life and works of Christ Jesus.
Anyone can study this Science of Christian healing and experience its tender blessings and inner peace. Some choose to go to church, attend a lecture or stop in the Reading Room. Others will read the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy or use these online resources.
Our doors are open to everyone. We have Sunday church services, Wednesday testimony meetings, and a Sunday School for young people up to 20 years of age. One activity that is unique is called a Reading Room which is open to the public.
Details about the history and interior of the church is available here.
The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy are our textbooks. The weekly Bible Lesson, available all week for individual study, is made up of passages from these two books. This Bible Lesson is then read as the Sunday sermon in Christian Science church services all around the world. There are two readers who are members of the congregation; one reads the Bible verses and the other person reads from the “Key to the Scriptures”—Science and Health.
The Commandments, The Sermon on the Mount, and the inspired Word of the Bible are central to our lives and practice of Christianity.
