Former Christian Scientists for Jesus Christ

We are former Christian Scientists -- former followers of Mary Baker Eddy, her religion Christian Science, and its "textbook" Science and Health. We have all found a personal relationship with Jesus Christ that is based upon the Bible and not upon its spiritual interpretation as presented in Science and Health. Our members belong to a variety of denominations, but we hold certain core beliefs that are central to biblical Christianity.

Christian Way was founded by Carolyn Poole in 1983 and is currently headed by Mike Benjamin. Mike is an Assistant Pastor at Calvary Community Church in Phoenix, Arizona.

Our Purpose:

The heart of our ministry involves:

  • Sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with current and former Christian Scientists
  • Equipping others to reach out to loved ones in Christian Science
  • Ministering to the spiritual and emotional needs of former Christian Scientists who remain confused or wounded from their involvement in Christian Science
  • Providing balance for the claims and promises made by the Christian Science Church; by its "textbook," Science and Health and other Church authorized writings; and by its founder Mary Baker Eddy
