Christian Science reveals the truth about progress and shows how to demonstrate it. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, has this to say about progress (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 181): "Progress is spiritual. Progress is the maturing conception of divine Love; it demonstrates the scientific, sinless life of man and mortal's painless departure from matter to Spirit, not through death, but through the true idea of Life,—and Life not in matter but in Mind."

In the light of Christian Science, progress is of special significance to men desirous of advancing themselves beyond the belief of mortality to the spiritual understanding of Life as God. That which is of God is universal in its manifestation; hence progress, as "the maturing conception of divine Love," is everywhere available for all. There may be many differing human concepts of progress, but it is the truth that "progress is spiritual" with which students of Christian Science need concern themselves, in order that progress may be realized.
