Welcome!


First Church of Christ, Scientist, Camden, Maine, is one of the worldwide branches of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, MA, founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1879.

Through the study of Christian Science, many people have found physical and emotional health, answers to their deepest spiritual questions, and an abiding peace. Christian Science recognizes that God is unconditional Love, infinite Mind, and supreme Spirit. We are God's perfect ideas, made in His/Her image and likeness; thus, our true nature is spiritual, and it is impossible to ever be separate from God. When we realize in prayer God's infinite goodness, we are healed.

Our pastor is the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Christian Science is explained in our textbook, Science and Health. In addition to elucidating fully and directly the spiritual teachings of the Bible, Science and Health reveals the principles of healing and harmony that are available now, to everyone.

Our church is conveniently located at One Central Street, across from the Camden Public Library.

Everyone is welcome at our Sunday and Wednesday services, and all young people up to the age of 20 are welcome in our Sunday School. Child care for infants and those too young for Sunday School is lovingly provided during all our services.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 207-236-4040. We also have additional information which varies on a daily basis on our Village Soup site.
