Christian Science is a Christian restorationist religious movement founded in 19th-century New England by Mary Baker Eddy. The name "Christian Science" can either be an informal name for the church, formally called The First Church of Christ, Scientist, or can be used for what Eddy said was the "Science" or "Law" of God.
Mary Baker Eddy said in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (1875) that prayer is effective and can heal disease. She described God as "Principle, Mind, Spirit, Soul, Life, Truth, Love".
