This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand,
and when ye turn to the left." — Isaiah 30:21 [King James Bible]
If you want to experience the peace and joy that comes from living a life directed by God’s love, you have come to the right place.
Our Christian Science Society is one of the many world-wide branches of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.
We are located at:
296 West Main Street
Bay Shore, New York 11706
Christian Science is based on the teachings of Jesus. It is a Christian religion that follows the inspired word of the Bible - both the Old and the New Testaments - along with the textbook
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,
by author Mary Baker Eddy.
Science and Health has its sole foundation in the Bible, and elucidates the timeless principles and guidelines found there.
These two books, The Holy Bible and Science and Health, show how God’s care and goodness can be felt
in everyday life, in practical ways.
