Welcome to the Christian Science Informal Group of Tampa Bay!
What We Believe
What is Christian Science?
In 1875, she published her primary book on this subject, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Then, in 1879, Eddy founded her church, calling it “Church of Christ, Scientist”, and her students were known as Christian Scientists. The church was designed “to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing.” (Church Manual, p.17). In 1892, the church was reorganized and named “The First Church of Christ, Scientist”. The church headquarters, also known as The Mother Church is located in Boston, Massachusetts, and there are branch churches today in over 75 countries. The Christian Science Informal Group of Tampa Bay is one of those branches. It is not necessary to join the church to study Christian Science, and you are welcome to attend our services at any time.

Prayer and Health
Healing every type of human challenge through the prayerful application of the teachings of Christ Jesus is fundamental to Christian Science. Earnest study of the textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, is essential for each seeker; however those who would like support in their prayers can call upon a professional Christian Science Practitioner. These individuals devote their lives to the practice of healing and are readily available to help you.
