The eleventh and forty-second chapters of Isaiah announce the manner of the coming of Christ to the human consciousness, and describe the healing works ever associated with this appearing. These works bear witness to God's presence. Of those who look to contrary material theories, the Bible says, "Let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth." Material theories are never supported by the spiritual facts which attest the presence of God and His Son. To dispose forever of the possibility that these works might be attributed to himself alone, or to a limited time, Christ Jesus said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also." Christian Science is following Christ Jesus' command, and is to-day overcoming sin, disease, and death by the method Jesus used. Christian Science subscribes to Christ Jesus' statement, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." It represents that, through the one and only Christ, the way has been shown; that it is for us to seek, to accept, and to obey; for us to learn the lessons of repentance, humility, morality, love, health, and every other spiritual virtue, all based on a true understanding of God as infinite Love.

On the subject of the Trinity, Mary Baker Eddy has written in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 331), "Life, Truth, and Love constitute the triune Person called God,—that is, the triply divine Principle, Love. They represent a trinity in unity, three in one,—the same in essence, though multiform in office: God the Father-Mother; Christ the spiritual idea of sonship; divine Science or the Holy Comforter."
