What is the origin of the Church of Christ, Scientist?
"In the spring of 1879, a little band of earnest seekers after Truth went into deliberations over forming a church without creeds, to be called the ‘Church of Christ, Scientist.’ They were members of evangelical churches, students of Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy in Christian Science, and were known as ‘Christian Scientists.’ At a meeting of the Christian Scientist Association, April 12, 1879, on motion of Mrs. Eddy, it was voted,—To organize a church designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing." ("Historical Sketch" from Manual of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts, p. 17)
