The ministry of Christian Science is based on the omnipotence and omnipresence of God. It is all-inclusive and all-sufficient, and being purely spiritual, it precludes the necessity for a material ministry. Christian Science has not the remotest relationship to medical practice. It is not a combining of two ministries, the spiritual and material, but it ministers to both the spiritual and the physical needs of humanity. Sin and sickness are not creations of God. Mrs. Eddy says on page 196 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "No law supports them. They have no relation to God wherewith to establish their power." They are contradictions of the omnipotence and omnipresence of God and His perfect creation, and are therefore to be dealt with through a right apprehension of divine Mind.

The question as to what can or can not be done for suffering humanity by the ministrations of Christian Science, is being answered every day by countless thousands of individuals who have been healed of all manner of diseases, attesting their gratitude through the Christian Science periodicals and the Wednesday evening testimony meetings; and in many other ways proving beyond a doubt that they have been not only physically healed but spiritually uplifted. Persons suffering from organic bodily diseases have been cured by Christian Science in more than a few authentic cases. Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health (p. 142): "Anciently the followers of Christ, or Truth, measured Christianity by its power over sickness, sin, and death; but modern religions generally omit all but one of these powers,—the power over sin. We must seek the undivided garment, the whole Christ, as our first proof of Christianity, for Christ, Truth, alone can furnish us with absolute evidence."
