What is Divine Science?

Divine Science is a Christian denomination that teaches practical, reasonable living based on the omnipresence of God. Divine Science is an extremly positive approach to life, seeking to accept the good in people and all of life. Divine Science stresses that God is not a physical man in the sky, for this limits our ability to perceive God's true nature. God is Spirit, everywhere present, the one and only Spirit behind, in and through all things, visible and invisible.

Divine Science denies the existence of any power or presence opposed to God. It sees that there are evil appearances and suffering in the world, but ascribes these to man's ignorance and erroneous use of God's laws of life.

Divine Science seeks to relate religion to daily needs, affirming that for every need there is God's perfect answer. Its main textbook is the Bible, and it relates its lessons to your life and everyday experiences.

Divine Science does break from tradition some in that it has no creedal requirements, dogma, ritual, or ecclesiastical garb. Divine Science chooses to believe that there is good in every religion. Different religions are like spokes on a wheel with the hub being God. They may be set apart by a variance of belief and approaches but they are all seeking the one God as the hub of all life. Consequently, Divine Science does not deny anyone the right to have their own beliefs.

Divine Science sees worship as serving God by uplifting and glorifyng God's spirit in man in positive, joyous ways. It seeks not to emphasize one's sins of the past, but instead gives attention to the good that exists in every person and what can be done with the now to transform one's self and his life.

Its main concern is not so much with a "future life" but with teaching people how to live fully in the present, seeing the good in all things. Divine Science also believes in eternal life and views the present moment as part of this eternal life.

Divine Science explains the mind as your connecting link with God or Divine Mind and shows how the action of your mind affects your body and circumstances. Much emphasis is placed on the effective power that every thought, feeling. word and act has upon your life.

Prayer is not seen as a technique for changing God, but for expanding and transforming your mind, and thus changing you.

Divine Science proclaims the divinity of Jesus, but goes further and assures that you, too, are a child of God and therefore divine in nature. Jesus expressed His divine potential and sought to show us how to express ours as well. Salvation is then the expanding understanding of one's innate divinity and perfectibility through living the life demonstrated by Jesus.

Divine Science is a member of the International New Thought Alliance .

The Lord's Prayer (In the Present Tense)

The Aramaic, believed to have been the language spoken by Jesus, had no past or future tense, which is one reason for praying the Lord's prayer in the present tense. Another reason is that the affirmative form of prayer is altogether consistent with all Jesus' teaching and with his attitude relative to the oneness of God and man.

Our Father which art in heaven,

Hallowed is Thy Name.

Thy kingdom is come; Thy will is done in earth as it is in heaven.

Thou givest us this day our daily bread:

Thou forgivest us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Thou leadest us not into tempation but dost deliver us from all evil,

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.


Divine Science Statement of Being

God is all, both visible and invisible.

One Presence, One Mind, One Power is all.

This One that is all is perfect life, perfect love, and perfect substance.

I am the individualized expression of God and ever one with this perfect life, perfect love, and perfect substance.
