About Christian Science in Hartford

Members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Hartford warmly welcome everyone to our church.

“God is Love.” This brief statement is at the heart of Christian Science, and our weekly church services are intended to reflect and express God’s healing love, which is available to all.

Our church is dedicated to understanding and demonstrating practical Christianity, as taught by Christ Jesus and explained by Mary Baker Eddy in her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. The study of Christian Science can help you find solutions to the challenges of everyday life, including sickness, relationship or financial concerns, employment, and depression.

Mary Baker Eddy’s study of the Bible led her to the understanding that the healing power practiced by Jesus centuries ago can be demonstrated today. She learned that the truths Jesus taught are relevant for all time and all mankind. In 1879 she established the Christian Science church on the spiritual foundation of Christ-healing. This church is a branch of The Mother Church in Boston. Our Hartford church was founded in 1898 and has been a healing presence in the greater Hartford community since then.

The Christian Science church was established "To organize a church designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing."
Manual of The Mother Church by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 17:8
