First Church of Christ, Scientist West Chester, PA
We are a Bible-based, Christian church with many resources available to support your spiritual growth.
Our church is “designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master [Christ Jesus], which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing” (Manual of The Mother Church by Mary Baker Eddy). Everyone is welcome!
Christian Science services include readings from the Bible (King James version) and from Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy on 26 weekly subjects found in the Christian Science Quarterly and studied by Christian Scientists throughout the world.
