Mary Baker Eddy established The First Church of Christ, Scientist in 1875 in Boston, Massachusetts. It is also called The Mother Church and has branches all over the world.
Instead of individuals, she ordained the Holy Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures as Pastor of the Church of Christ, Scientist.
Who is our Pastor?
The founder of our church, Mary Baker Eddy, appointed the Bible and her textbook, Science and Health with the Key to the Scriptures, as the Pastor of our church. As such, we elect Readers to present the Lesson-Sermon to the congregation. The First Reader reads from Science and Health while the Second Reader reads Bible passages.
