The Tenets of Christian Science

The Bible

image8

1.  As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life.

One God

image9

2.  We acknowledge and adore one supreme and infinite God.  We acknowledge His Son, one Christ; the Holy Ghost or divine Comforter; and man in God's image and likeness.

Forgiveness

image10

3.  We acknowledge God's forgiveness of sin in the destruction of sin and the spiritual understanding that casts out evil as unreal.  But the belief in sin is punished so long as the belief lasts.  

Atonement

image11

4.  We acknowledge Jesus atonement as the evidence of divine efficacious Love, unfolding man's unity with God through Christ Jesus the Way-shower; and we acknowledge that man is saved through Christ, through Truth, Life, and Love as demonstrated by the Galilean Prophet in healing the sick and overcoming sin and death.

Resurrection

image12

5.  We acknowledge that the crucifixion of Jesus and his resurrection served to uplift faith to understand eternal Life, even the allness of Soul, Spirit, and the nothingness of matter.

Our Promise

image13

6.  And we solemnly promise to watch, and pray for that Mind to be in us which was also in Christ Jesus;  to do unto others as we would have them do unto us; and to be merciful, just, and pure.
