Tenets
of The Mother Church
The First Church of Christ, Scientist

To be signed by those uniting with The First
Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass.


1. As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired
Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal
Life.

2. We acknowledge and adore one supreme and
infinite God. We acknowledge His Son, one Christ;
the Holy Ghost or divine Comforter; and man in
God's image and likeness.

3. We acknowledge God's forgiveness of sin in
the destruction of sin and the spiritual understanding
that casts out evil as unreal. But the belief in sin is
punished so long as the belief lasts.

4. We acknowledge Jesus' atonement as the evidence
of divine, efficacious Love, unfolding man's
unity with God through Christ Jesus the Way-shower
