Welcome to the website of Fifth Church of Christ, Scientist, Long Beach, CA. We are one of the world-wide branches of The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, MA, whose mission is "to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing," as stated in the Church Manual by the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy. Christian Science is a religion deeply rooted in the Bible, particularly in the teachings and works of Christ Jesus, who said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also ..." Through Christian Science, individuals have found better emotional and physical health, answers to life's deepest issues, and progress on their spiritual journeys. Christian Science is fully explained in Mrs. Eddy's primary text on spirituality and healing, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.


Founded in 1950, we offer Sunday worship services at 10:00am, where passages from The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy are read. Children under the age of 20 may attend our Sunday School at the same time. Our Wednesday night service begins at 7:30pm with topical and timely readings from the Bible and Science and Health followed by spontaneous sharing of personal experiences and testimonies of healing based on the study of Christian Science by individuals in the congregation. Childcare is available at all services.


Our Sunday School is available to children aged 3 to 20. Here, they can learn about the Bible and the basics of Christian Science. It's a safe place where young people can meet and discuss the issues they are dealing with, and learn how to effectively put Christian Science into practice. All are welcome!
