On Serving Our Cause

Many persons approach the study of Christian Science seeking relief from a physical bondage which has defied material methods of healing. Such as these are profoundly grateful when, upon their spiritual awakening, the false beliefs of pain and other difficulties vanish. There are many others who come to study this Science not seeking physical release, but a better understanding of God and of man's relationship to Him. They, too, are profoundly grateful for the teaching of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science.

A means of expressing one's gratitude so that others may feel the healing, redemptive influence of this teaching, is provided in serving the Cause of Christian Science, from which one has received increased spiritual understanding and benefit. The earnest student of this Science, while retaining these blessings for himself, desires also to share his new understanding of God and His spiritual creation with those ready to receive such a message.

Therefore we find that, in order to render the greatest good to the greatest number, alert and eager students take the necessary steps leading toward membership in a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, if one is available in their locality. This step is usually either preceded or followed by their becoming affiliated with The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. Both steps are essential if we are fully to serve the Cause of Christian Science.
