Christian Science, a system of healing in the way Jesus healed, was discovered by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866. She wrote out her discovery of this curative principle in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. It is Christian because it draws its authority squarely from the Bible, especially the life and teachings of Christ Jesus. It is Science because it has provable, repeatable results, as demonstrated in the daily lives of people all over the world for well over 100 years, bringing healing and regeneration. Its purpose is to save not only from physical ills but also from sin and death through an understanding of God.
