Position Statement on the Science of Christian Science

The Christian Science that Mary Baker Eddy discovered and stated in her Textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, is seen to be the universal Science of all sciences. The denominational aspect of Christian Science is fading away, and its vital role as a proto-science is emerging.

Science cannot be organized and its investigation cannot be outlined or controlled humanly without endangering its unfoldment. Max Kappeler based his research entirely on the Bible and the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy as the complete revelation of Christian Science, as well as the teachings of John W. Doorly, who detected the scientific system of reference in the Christian Science textbook.

The Kappeler Institute USA claims no exclusive rights to the term “Science of Christian Science,” nor does it present itself as an authority to endorse, control, or regulate work on this subject.
