Christian Science was founded by a woman named Mary Baker Eddy in the late 1800's. She experienced a healing from a serious injury, which most would call 'miraculous'. Seeking to understand what had healed her, she spent many years studying the Bible, and began to understand though the scriptures and through revelation, the Science of Christianity, or the way in which Jesus, the apostles, and prophets were able to heal themselves and others through a radical reliance on and trust in God. She named her discovery Christian Science. She brought this revelation to popular churches, which surprisingly, as it was in Jesus' time--rejected it. Thus she started her own church, the First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.
That was over a century ago, and since then Christian Science Churches have opened up all over the world: there are over 1800 branch churches in over 80 Countries world-wide. This "truth that makes men free", which was all but lost after Jesus' time, has brought healing to generations of people, who have relied practically on God to meet their needs.
"Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free." ~ Christ Jesus
