About First Church of Christ, Scientist, Longwood, Florida

Our church is a place where children and adults worship, pray, study, heal, discover, explore, and research one God, the Father of all. We offer opportunities to explore the works of Jesus and prove the continuing relevance and power of spiritual healing in all our church activities. This Christian church family meets twice a week in a casual setting.

Christian Science is Christian.  It’s based on the teachings of Christ Jesus recorded in the Bible along with his remarkable works.  Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, states in her primary book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, that “these mighty works are not supernatural, but supremely natural…” (p. xi:14)  This can mean resolving difficult challenges with health, relationships, employment, and other personal and global issues — through prayer.

Those who practice Christian Science are free to make their own choices about what to think and do in each situation, including health care.  But, Christian Science is so much more than a system of self-help or health care.  Ultimately, it is a way for all of us to draw closer to our loving Father-Mother, God and to experience His ever-present care, guidance, and peace.
