Church Membership

There comes to each one who has been healed by Christian Science the momentous question, Shall I become a member of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, and of a branch Church of Christ, Scientist? Fear, doubt, procrastination, selfishness, would argue against this important step, and thereby deprive the individual and the church of a happy, profitable, and necessary relationship.

Without The Mother Church and its branches, what would become of our movement? The church services, Reading Rooms, Sunday schools, periodicals, lectures, practice and teaching of Christian Science could not be unitedly established to bless humanity. Even Mrs. Eddy's textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and her other writings would be less widely available to the hungering thousands of weary searchers after the satisfying truths of divine Science. One turns, however, from the contemplation of such a situation as impossible. And yet in the measure of his individual part the responsibility for the availability of the great good which The Mother Church and its branches afford rests upon each one who has touched the healing garment of the Christ.
