Church Building

When the members of a Christian Science church decide to build, they endeavor to hold in thought the right concept of Church as given on page 583 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, as well as those words spoken by Jesus, "He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing." They are also mindful of the admonition of Paul to the Corinthians, "Whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God."

Building a church edifice is a privilege which should be welcomed by every church member, for it offers an opportunity for growth to those engaged in the undertaking. All demonstration is marked by unfoldment; and as the material structure rises little by little and appears to mortal sense in beauty of form and outline, it becomes a symbol of the spiritual unfoldment of truth and love in the individual consciousness of the members.
