No.

Do you believe in Heaven or Hell?

There is no geographical Heaven or Hell, either on the earth, in the skies or space. Every individual lives in their personal sense of Heaven or Hell according to the thoughts they entertain, their morals, ethics, standards and behavior by which they live.

Is Christian Science faith healing?

No. Christian Science does not involve pleading with God to heal the sick and then accepting his will, good or bad. Nothing in Christian Science theology says it's God's will that anyone suffer, be sick, or die. Christian Science shows God to be entirely good, and therefore his will for each individual is only health and life.

Is Christian Science a cult?

No it is neither a cult, fashion nor fad. It does not include the worship or adoration of any person or group of persons. We worship only one infinite supreme being - God.

Do you go to the Doctors if you are ill?

Christian Scientists are quite free to go to a Doctor if they wish. Christian Scientists generally rely on prayer to heal all problems and difficulties because they have found that this treatment is more effective than any other. If they visit a Doctor for aid, this is usually a temporary measure. We always obey the law of the land, especially where children are concerned.

Do you worship Mrs Eddy?

No. We worship only one God. We regard Mrs Eddy with great reverence and gratitude for giving her discovery of the Science of the Christ healing power to the world.

Do you have a pastor?

Not in person. The Bible and the Christian Science Text book, Science and Health, with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy are our only preachers. The weekly Bible lesson forms the sermon for our Sunday service.

Can I learn to heal?

Yes the Christian Science text book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, when studied earnestly, gives all the inspiration and understanding needed to heal. The last chapter of this book consists of 100 pages of testimonies of healing.
